The Buono is overrated.
Don't get me wrong. It's really nice to be able to put hot water where you want it. But it doesn't show the sort of build quality I want for something that I'll be handling before I've had my first cup of coffee.
I can direct water almost as well with my cheapie Procoter-Sliex 1L electric kettle as with a Buono. Admittedly, my P-S isn't quite as good. But for the $45 price difference... Plus my kettle boils water on top pouring it.
...There are so many manual methods I might have to get a few more to add to my arsenal! Moka Pot, Chemex, on and on ...somebody help me!!
Brady, it has been about a year now. Have you seen better results from your clever, have opinions changed?

The difference in the Clever is that it has the plug in the bottom.
Understood. I own a Clever and prefer the Melitta. Yet to have a superior cup from a Clever, or even hear that it is to be expected.
