If you are used to making a pot of coffee even when you want just a cup, then this great little brewer may well be your saviour. Arguably the most popular manual brew method over the past decade, the Hario V60-02 is a newer twist on the classic Melitta cones. There are as many opinions on brew method as there are baristas but, once you have found your favourite, this is one of cheapest and most effective ways to make great coffee at home.
This method, paired with the appropriate filters, is ideal for making single cups of coffee directly into the mug - you can make up to 16oz in one brew - and ensures that you only make the coffee that you need. It's simple to use, easy to clean and, as long as you have good coffee, may make you put your coffee machine away for good.
This Hario V60 is clear plastic (BPA-free and shatter resistant), but it is also available in ceramic (prettier and better at retaining heat), heatproof glass or metal with a variety of finishes. Whichever you choose, your days of old, microwaved coffee could be over.

Have had many of these pour over brewers, they are awesome. Makes the best coffee, bar none.
The V60 is easy to use, but difficult to master. It really does teach patience in brewing, but once you have it down, results can be pretty mind blowing. I recommend grabbing a pouring kettle with this for the added accuracy. The plastic cone has the advantage of no real heatloss vs the glass and the ceramic, and on top of that, it's cheaper. Doesn't seem to hold smells. Clean after a quick rinse. Buy if you want to learn.
