Using hi-tech photo-etching technology, Sowden has developed a micro-thin filter with more than half a million microscopic holes giving outstanding filtering ability and making it possible to produce what we call SoftBrew Coffee. Put your preferred amount of ground coffee into the filter and pour in hot water, just off the boil. Let it brew for four to eight minutes and your coffee is ready. It is that simple. Nothing to worry about except the hot water. We have followed our principle of reducing things to a minimum in order to make coffee brewing the simple treat it is supposed to be and bringing out the natural flavour of coffee. The new Sowden SoftBrew filter is definitely an easy way of brewing an excellent cup of natural coffee.

True, this pot isn't insulated, so you either need to drink it right away, or pour the remaining coffee into an insulated container or thermos, like I do. This is a great brewer for weekend coffee, when I'm not in a rush. It cleans up easily, too.
I originally bought this because I like way it looks and the fact that it doesn't use disposable filters. I was also drawn to the control that you have over making the coffee. Since you can steep the coffee grounds for as long as you want, this vessel easily loaned itself for making cold brewed coffee as well.
My experience with the SoftBrew is that it makes good coffee as long as you can. The main things being how hot the water is that you use and more importantly how long you expose the water to the coffee grounds.
The filter looks well made a with very fine mesh but with lots of mesh surface area so water flow is not an issue. As good as the filter seems to be, coffee ground silt can still pass through. The silt will sit at the bottom unless disturbed so you just have to watch out for your final cup(s). While pouring you will be able to see coffee become darker with silt so it's easy enough to just stop pouring at this point. Overall I would say that if you're a fan of the reusable filter like I am, the silt is a small bad that comes with more good.
Cleaning is easy for the porcelain as everything will rinse off or come off with a sponge. The filter can be a hassle to get every piece of coffee ground out but enough rinsing in the sink will do the trick.
I bought the 12 cup version because I didn't want to be limited by how much I could make in one brew. Which can feel a little big if you're making only a few cups for just yourself but it's also a good size for making tea or cold brew coffee.
We now love our new coffee pot. The fact that it can stay in the cupboard rather than being plugged in on the counter top saved a lot of space in our small kitchen.
I put hot water (just from the tap) in the coffee pot while the water starts to boil on the stove. I find this makes for a much hotter cup of coffee and as well, since we live in a colder climate, I also put hot tap water in our cups ahead of time. We have never had this hot a cup of coffee from our electric coffee pots!
The coffee itself is excellent and we are very happy with our purchase!
