Product Description

Color: White | Style Name: No.4

HIC's number 4-size Filter Cone is designed to brew 8 to 12-cups of coffee using the manual, pour-over coffee method. Making fresh-brewed coffee in smaller amounts allows for a more enjoyable, aromatic and flavorful brew. No more stale or burnt coffee that was made hours ahead. Brew only what’s needed for less waste. The pour-over coffee method is a time-tested technique, developed in Japan, that allows complete control over the quality and flavor of brewed coffee, one delicious cup at a time. Pour-over coffee, also known as hand pour, is a method of brewing coffee by pouring a thin, slow, steady stream of water over the ground coffee. Practiced by coffee lovers worldwide for the distinct, flavorful results, it requires water at a precise temperature, fresh, high-quality beans at the right grind, slow and even water flow, and patience during the brew time. HIC's Filter Cone is how to make good coffee the pour-over coffee way. For a perfect brew, preheat the Coffee Filter Cone by rinsing it with hot water, then place it over a mug or carafe. Insert a paper or reusable coffee filter and measure in medium-grind coffee, or grind whole beans fresh (approximately 2 rounded tablespoons of ground coffee per 8-ounces of water, or to desired taste). Using just-boiled water, wet all of the grounds slightly and let wet grounds stand to bloom coffee for 15 to 30 seconds. When grounds mix with water, they expand slightly and release more flavor. Slow and precise water flow is critical to extracting the most flavor with this pour over coffee technique. Pour the remaining hot water, slowly and evenly, from the center of the grounds outward, in a circular motion. Allow the porcelain coffee dripper to finish dripping. Total brew time should take about 2 ½ minutes. Remove the coffee filter cone from the mug and discard the wet grounds. Drink the fresh-brewed coffee immediately. HIC's Porcelain Filter Cone makes a perfect coffee accessories gift for at-home baristas and coffee enthusiasts. Made from high-fired porcelain with a scratch-free glaze that's durable. Reusable coffee filter cone is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

Perfect for single cup coffee making.
Dan
What I like most about this porcelain cone is that it is not plastic and I don't have to worry that the hot water will dissolve or leach plasticizers into my coffee.
Tsukikenn
Limits coffee cups choices as base of filter cone is too small, I have a plastic one that fits over any size mug or cup.

This is a solid piece of ceramic with good glazing. It rests securely on either a coffee mug or my old Mr. Coffee carafe.

This cone has three holes in the bottom, a feature which I have come to see doesn't make much difference. Apparently, how fine the coffee is ground determines the flow rate more than the number of holes. Once the coffee is through the filter paper, it is going to flow at a steady rate through one hole or three.

This cone is a little heavy, but I feel that it will last a long time. The handle is nice and thick.

I bought this item after trying the more expensive Frieling/Cilo and having bad luck with two of them. (You can see my review on that item's page.)

Using a cone of any type seems to make better coffee than the many drip machines I've tried over the years. You can control the temperature and flow of the water exactly the way you want.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: Have had this now over two months, using it twice every day. Love it. Good, solid, well balanced, and very handy.

I had a difficult time comparing this to the Frieling Cilio version that's significantly more expensive. I ended up getting both, and prefer the Frieling Cilio. I've uploaded some product photos to help others make the comparison.

- Weight and thickness: the HIC is significantly heavier and thicker than the Frieling Cilio. I like the lighter weight of the other one.

- Number of drain holes: HIC has three, Frieling Cilio has one larger one. No noticeable difference in draining time.

- Outer diameter of bottom rim: this is the ring that helps keeps the filter holder in place on your carafe. Frieling Cilio has a smaller diameter (2 7/16") vs. HIC (2 3/4"). My carafe opening diameter is also 2 3/4" which makes the HIC very awkward and unsteady. Your carafe needs to have a larger diameter opening than the bottom rim on the filter holder.

Small differences, but they add up. I like the Frieling Cilio much better and feel it's worth the extra cost.

For those who are familiar with and like the single-cup, hand-brewed coffee, this is a great little coffee maker. I don't like automatic coffee makers and I hate coffee that's been sitting, even for a few minutes. Making coffee this way is perfect for me. Before, I had been using a plastic cone and wasn't thrilled with it but it was all I could find around here. Plastic anything is not my first choice. It stains and I always wonder how much of the plastic I'm getting along with the brew, even using a paper filter.

This little cone is the perfect solution. It doesn't stain, rinses out quickly and cleanly, and best of all, it's NOT PLASTIC! It's heavy and sturdy and feels like a real coffee maker. It looks classy in the kitchen. It's inexpensive. What more could you want? Besides a butler or maid to make the coffee for you, I mean. If you gotta do it yourself, use this. It's a great investment in your happiness and well-being.

I use the Number 2 filters with it; the Number 1's felt a bit small to me even though they fit. I'm a bit sloppy and make very strong coffee so the Number 2 filters make me feel more secure.

I wanted to get away from my big coffee pot because I was throwing away a lot more coffee than I was drinking. My search for a better solution included the following requirements: I wanted to stay away from plastics, make great tasting coffee one cup at a time, and save some money. This beautifully simple device has solved all my coffee problems! It's fast, simple, and I have total control over the temperature and strength of my coffee. The filter and grounds can go into the compost pile, and the cone just needs a quick rinse and it's ready to go again. No K-Cups to throw away, no expensive fancy machine to clean and maintain (and take up counter space), and I get a great cup of coffee every time for mere pennies. What's not to love?

One note- This is a No. 1 size cone, but No. 1 filters are not readily available at my local grocery store (Houston, TX area). No. 2 and 4 are regularly in stock, however, so I picked up some No. 2 filters and they work just fine. This actually might be better because the No. 1 cone is so small and the NO. 2 filter stands up a little higher which keeps the grounds in the cone as you pour the water in.

Just received this item and have made a few individual cups of coffee. Love it. Water flows through at just the right rate for good coffee flavor. Tastes better than our auto drip coffee maker. Maybe it's because I can get the water hotter boiling it in the tea kettle? Maybe the rate of water flow is better? Super-easy clean up. Lets you make a cup of coffee with only slightly more effort than making a cup of tea. Much cheaper than using a K-cup or pod coffee maker, almost as convenient, and the coffee tastes worlds better. I'd call this no. 4, a good 'medium' size. Not a good size if you need something to carry to work; just right if it's going to stay in the kitchen. You can use it on a mug, but will also hold enough coffee grounds to let you make a 12 cup pot. The cone shaped paper coffee filters (1, 2, 4, and 6) only vary by overall height, the slope of the sides is the same; so you can use smaller sized filters in this No. 4 sized cone if you prefer. I've also used this to hold a paper filter for making cold brewed coffee. I'm considering putting away the auto drip coffee maker and Keurig machine and gaining back some counter space.
