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 red plastic (BPA-free and shatter resistant), but it is also available in ceramic (prettier and better at retaining heat). Whichever you choose, your days of old, microwaved coffee could be over.

The classic hario V60-02, but in red! I prefer using plastic such as this one because I feel as though it retains the heat better. Would recommend.
Well - what can be said about the Hario V 60.
It is well known and trusted over the years. The simple holder for the paper filters. It is however an option to metal drip-filters since it keeps all the essential oils from entering your cup...a matter of preference.
For me it is about having both options … I switch between metal and paper constantly.
I chose the plastic version … cheaper and supposingly keeping the heat better.
There is not much to go wrong or misfunction. It arrived as expected in reasonable time.
New to coffee? A V60 is a must. Barista? The plastic is supposedly superior to the ceramic. Me? Does EXACTLY what it should, and does it well. And for the price? No brainer...
