Switch on a filter is a great idea, nice brew. Well made. Gets cool quickly so need to pre-heat filter, cup etc really well. Cheers, CGK
The Hario Immersion Switch is a great immersion coffee maker and it is a fully functional V60 dripper too. I’m currently exploring the immersion way, having great results with it but as a test I made some dripper brew as well. The glass cone retains heat (hot rinse of the paper filter) exceptionally so there is no heat loss during the immersion phase. The switch mechanism is very simple and foolproof, no unwanted drippage, the steel ball shuts off the flow perfectly.
The materials are high quality (no surprises here, it’s a Hario product) and cleaning is very simple. The server carafe is great, stable, making a brew is a nice experience. Experimenting with it is pure joy.
The only downside might be the size, 250g of water is the absolute maximum (200 is the comfort zone), if you want more, you might have to run it twice or choose a different dripper. For me it’s not a serious issue, just mentioning it, in case 300g or more is your way to go.
All in all, the product is pricey but it’s essentially two products, a high quality tool for the job. If you don’t know whether the V60-like drippers or immiersion brewers are your thing, it can be your Hail Mary.
