these are brewt if youve never ran across them

I recently ran across them in a professional situation, ~meaning mr. owner decided these would be primary brewing method over pour-over~...

 

now although that little gem of an idea is sitting pretty in my mind as much as incest does, i'm trying to stay open to things i may be ignorant of.

so has anybody seen these used or used them to any positive effect?

Seems very similar to the Clever Coffee Dripper except using a different filter system...
The clever can make a great cup, so unless theres a ton of fines that get threw that filter I dont see why this couldn't make an excellent cup as well.
I just really don't like the Idea of using plastic for anything. We use Brewts for all our tea, and we have a clever, but I'm not a fan of them at all. Good Idea but I hate plastic.
I have never used a Brewt but I have experience with the Clever. My only problem is that the clever is always cracking I believe from the hot water. I never put my clevers in the dishwasher, never drop them but sooner or later they all develop hairline cracks at upper rim. Not made for commercial use longer than 2 weeks.

Aeryn,

It would be helpful for the conversation if you would post specifics about what you experiencing with the Brewt.  While I don't own one, I have had some Single Origin's made from them in the past that I thought did the coffee very well.  It was much cleaner than a press pot with many of the subtler notes often lost in other preparations shining through.   I think it was prepared like a cupping sample, pouring at 200 and not breaking the bloom until 4 minutes.  Then decanting immediately. 

 

What are the brew perimeters you are using?  What specifically do you not like with the results?

used them for a year now got 4 of them running sold like 50 and never crack one or got any of them return , they be great to me

 

Olivier,  do you brew coffee in these with or without a paper filter?

Nope  with paper filer

 

Never used them for coffee, although I have for tea and they worked pretty well.

what don't you trust about them?

I've never had one of our clevers crack before, but we also keep them warm.  Maybe drastic temperature changes are causing cracks in your plastic?

Brewt is basically an Abid/Clever aimed more for tea. And there are MANY cafes that have put down the v60s and picked up the Clevers, due to ease of use and consistency. As a shop owner who LOVES Kalita Waves, syphons, and the occasional Bonmac drip, I will definitely be using Clevers as the single-cup method when I start my by-the-cup program soon. They don't "look cool" by any means. But they make great coffee when used properly.
I've found that the plastic absorbs flavours over time. We've got a couple that no matter what goes into them it all tastes the same. It's easy to avoid that they just need to be cleaned immediately.
