Promising review: “First of all, it’s beautiful! I couldn’t unpack it fast enough (I also wanted to make sure it was not broken) and set it up.
I quickly boiled the cloth filter and rinsed/washed the components and filled the alcohol burner with 95% everclear. I then prepped it for coffee by grinding 40g of fresh beans and boiling some water in a kettle (it works faster with hot water) and lit the lamp. About five minutes later, I had a full, albeit small, pot of coffee. OMG… the flavor!
The coffee was strong, yet smooth. There wasn’t a hint of bitterness in my cup at all. In fact, I tend to be a sugar and cream kind of coffee drinker and I decided to sample it black just to see how it tasted by itself and I realized I could enjoy this coffee all by itself! This is a first for me, folks. Like, seriously!” —Cecilia
