Clever, Clever, HandyBrew.

Clever, Clever, HandyBrew.

The Clever Coffee Dripper has been a very popular product for a long time which is why it was frustrating to have been sold out of them for the past few weeks. We have been impatiently waiting on our new shipment (that just arrived this afternoon) because the shipping container was packed with 2 new versions of the popular dripper and a new product called the HandyBrew. The Clevers now come in a large size (same capacity as the previous model) and a small size (about 10oz max). They are made of much better plastic that is a bit stronger and does a better job of standing up to abuse and daily use. The large size still takes a #4 filter (1 box included with purchase) and the small size takes a #1 (1 box included with purchase), which sits a little below the rim so if you plan on filling it right to the brim each time, get some #2 filters that extend a bit past the edge.

The HandyBrew is kinda like a Clever but kinda not. It has the same drain system that allows you to drain your steeped coffee when it's ready but it doesn't require paper filters since it uses a double stainless steel filter that is easily removable for cleaning. It makes tea too.
