Pour over coffee is one of our favorite ways to brew. It’s great for making a single cup, or even a few cups to share with your friends. This post is going to focus on the latter, brewing multiple cups of coffee the old fashioned way using a pour over method. There’s a lot of options out there for decanters, but which one is best for you? Let’s get into it.
Pros of Multiple Cup Coffee Decanters
- They’re pretty! That’s right. They look nice on your counter and if that isn’t a reason to own one then I don’t know what is.
- Great for teaching and sharing. The larger pour over decanters are great for teaching others and sharing your knowledge of brewing excellent coffee. They make it easier for others to see what you’re doing and how you’re pouring.
- No electricity required. Like all manual brewing methods, a pour over coffee decanter will not let you down during a power outage.
The Best Multiple Cup Coffee Decanters
Hario is one of the most trusted names in the coffee business, especially when it comes to hand equipment. The removable silicone band is fully heat resistant to enable easy pouring once you’ve finished brewing. With a 700ml capacity, you’ll be able to brew for about 2-3 people.
The Chemex 8-Cup Classic Series is… well… a classic when it comes to multiple cup coffee decanters. It comes in a range of sizes from 1-cup to 10-cups (5oz per cup), so you can get one just for yourself and one for serving everyone else. The wooden collar and leather tie have been a part of the iconic Chemex style since 1941 when it was invented.
Bodum makes some of the most modern and stylish brewing gear available. This dripper comes in all different shapes and sizes to fit all kitchens and decor. The filter is reusable so you won’t need to spend money on paper filters or worry about running out.
The Osaka stand dripper comes in three different wood finishes: natural, black, and mahogany. The carafe is made from the same quality glass as the Hario V60 Decanter mentioned above, making it resistant to thermal shock. It also comes equipped with a reusable stainless steel mesh filter so you won’t need to worry about paper filters. It has a 20oz brewing capacity so it can serve about 2-3 people.
Which Multiple Cup Coffee Decanter To Get
You can’t go wrong with any of these options. The Chemex is a classic option that is widely available. Not only does it produce an extremely balanced and clean cup of coffee, but it’s available in many different sizes too making it the most versatile option. The Osaka is a great option if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd with something more unique.
