I made this cherry pour over stand for my Mom. It uses a #2 size filter and is made with 1/4” stock. It measures 5 1/2” W X 4 1/2” D X 5 1/2” H. I finished it with oil and wax.

Very nice, Hutch!

I like the dovetails too…

But, what is it for… “a pour over”... for what?
Making a cup of coffee / tea??

Thank you…

Nice build – looks strong enough and should clean up easily if it needs to!

What’s a pour over stand you ask?

it’s like the bottom half of a Mr. Coffee.

put your cup underneath and pour water from a tea kettle into the white ceramic part holding a filter &coffee.

No?

Add me to the list of “Dont know what the hell a pour over stand is!”

Finished product looks pretty cool though (insert applauding smiley-face here)

OK, a ONE-CUP Coffee / Tea brewer!!

I guess you have to experiment with the Coffee dose… like 1/12 of a 12 cup pot… LOL etc.

Thank you.

Thanks Bill. I thought I’d duplicate the info for those who haven’t had a really good pour over coffee. The flavor is outstanding and I drink 1 great cup instead of one regular pot of coffee.

I really like the pour over coffee when you use a fresh roasted coffee. I was introduced to this method by a local coffee roaster that really does a good job with his bean selection and roasting method in small batches. Always fresh.
The drippers that I use need a #2 filter and with a 1/4 cup of freshly ground beans…1 great cup of coffee. He recommends to bring the water to a boil and then set it off the heat for about 60 seconds. This brings the water to the desired 195-205 degrees.
Enjoy. You likely have a nice selection of beans available to you. How fresh is fresh?...consumed between 10-14 days of roasting, so you might have to find a local roaster that also does small batches.
