Product Review: RIALTO Permanent Coffee Filter - Stainless Steel Pour Over Coffee Dripper - Reusable cone with pour over coffee stand

Product Description

RIALTO Pour-Over Coffee Filter
The Fuller Flavored Coffee mug solution.

The Rialto Pour-Over Coffee Maker allows more oils and aromatics to escape from the ground coffee bean, encouraging a more complex and delicate cup of coffee.

It also allows you to control every variable of the brewing process to create a cup that's exactly the way you like it. The stand that is included will fit on most cups or pots making for an effortless brew.

Rialto Pour over method style coffee brewing is just as quick and easy as automatic brewing machines and is easily cleaned up as well.

Reusable Filter and Fresher Brews
The reusable 18/8 stainless steel filter eliminates paper waste, and its small size allows for smaller, fresher brews.

The mesh design allows for coffee to flow through quickly and easily without any coffee grinds being released through into your cup.

Versatile, Portable and Great for Camping
Your Rialto filter is a wonderfully portable device for camping or anytime you want to brew fresh, quality coffee on the go.

Use it over a coffee mug, carafe or beaker. You can make 1-2 cups of fresh ground coffee.
No Plastic, No Paper: Double Filter with Ultra Fine Stainless Steel Mesh.

My Review

I've had a couple of coffee presses but last week the glass broke in one of them because I was trying to pull the glass from the plastic holder and it shattered. I still have another coffee press but sometimes the grounds still get around the filter and end up in my cup. So I really wanted something different to use and when I saw this I knew I had to try it. There are a ton of different drip devices but this one had a really fine mesh filter that looked like it wouldn't let any coffee grounds into my cup so I settled on this one and am really glad that I did. I've now used this dripper to make several cups of coffee over the past couple of days and there have been no grounds in my coffee at all.

It's really easy to use, you just have to be careful when pouring the hot liquid that you pour it slowly and use something where the water pours out smoothly otherwise you could burn yourself. I really like that I didn't have to use a paper filter with this and that unlike a french press, there aren't a lot of different parts to clean after using it. This is something really different and if you like making one or two cups at a time, this might be exactly what you've been looking for. All you do is place the coffee dripper and stand on top of your cup, add as much coffee grounds as you'd like to the mesh filter and pour hot water over the grounds. The water pours over the grounds and drips down (pretty fast) down through the bottom and into your cup.
