Hario Switch, designed to offer a versatile brewing experience by allowing users to switch between immersion and pour-over brewing methods.
The dripper has a unique valve system that enables users to control the flow of water during brewing. In immersion mode, the valve is closed, allowing the coffee grounds to steep in water for a desired duration. Once the desired brewing time is reached, the valve can be opened to release the brewed coffee into the serving vessel. This immersion method is similar to techniques used in other devices like the Clever Dripper or the French press.
On the other hand, by switching to the pour-over mode, the valve is opened from the beginning, and users can control the flow rate of water by pouring it directly onto the coffee grounds. This mode allows for more control over the extraction process and the ability to adjust the brewing time and water flow to achieve different flavor profiles.
The Hario Immersion Dripper Switch has a recommended brewing capacity of approximately 16 to 20 ounces (473 to 591 milliliters) of brewed coffee. This capacity can vary slightly depending on factors such as the grind size, coffee-to-water ratio, and personal brewing preferences. It is important to note that the capacity refers to the final volume of brewed coffee and not the amount of water that can be initially poured into the dripper.
The Hario Immersion Dripper Switch is known for its flexibility, allowing coffee enthusiasts to experiment with different brewing techniques and tailor their coffee to their preferred taste preferences.
