Our new Glass Coffee Pour Over Set , Hario No. 1 Filters

A video and further information about our all-glass coffee brew set. It makes a great cup!

We are adding this small all-glass, low cost coffee brew set to Sweet Maria’s site today, and I wanted to explain why I like it so much … basically because I have getting some great cups from it! It is small capacity, 350 ml is ideal (like 11.5 ounces). I use Hario V60 No 1 size, although the more standard No 2 size works fine too. But it brews a bit like a Chemex in a way, or hybrid of Chemex and V60. I explain how I fold the filters to a slight narrower angle, hence we call it a V50 filter brew (!?) Anyway, it is cheap and makes great coffee! Here is the link to the product: Glass Coffee Pour Over set for $19.90 !

This complete glass brewing kit includes a borosilicate glass dripper with matching carafe, and a pack of 100 Hario V60 filters. It’s a great pour-over coffee brewing set for a couple cups of coffee. We love the coffee we get from this dripper!

We know people prefer glass or ceramic for brewers, and with our high temperature borosilicate glass brew set, you coffee only touches glass! While the kit says it brews 400ml (13.5 oz), we thing 350ml (11.8 oz) is better.

I have brewed some great coffee with this dripper, but there is one unique thing I do: fold the V60 filter to a slightly narrower angle. 60  degrees is a little wide for this dripper. Let’s call it a V50 brewer. (Scroll the photos above to show how it’s best to fold the filter)

In a way, this brews a bit like a mini-chemex more than a Hario type brewer. The drainage is slowed by the way the filter sits against the side walls, and I think that’s part of why everyone here at Sweet Maria’s is loving the brew results from this little glass dripper kit. Some type of gooseneck kettle is needed to get the best results here, as with most pour over brews.

    1. I use this brewer at home daily now. I am using 25 grams coffee to produce 300 ml coffee. I am doing 1 minute soak, wetting the grinds with about 50 ml water. sometimes stirring that if the coffee is really really fresh but often no stir. The #1 hario limits the water rate since it is so short, so I basically pulse in the water as full as possible to the top of the filter until I reach the 300 ml weight. Really really like the results from this set. It’s slow to drain but I think thats why it works so well.
