The C70 – Do Steeper Angles Brew Better Coffee?

There is a wide variety...

of pour over drippers out there, and they come in many different shapes and sizes. Also a pretty good number of them look nearly identical, and the differences can be pretty subtle; like a mere ten degrees for example.  In fact that's what we're looking at today. If you're reading a coffee blog about pour overs it's probably safe to assume you're most likely familiar with the Hario V60. That 60 denotes the angle of the cone slope, and its one of the more common angles you'll find on a cone dripper, like the Chemex for example. But what you may not be as familiar with is the Saint Anthony Industries C70 and it's slightly steeper slope.

Of course both of these drippers have a lot in common. They are both cones, they both use paper filters, and they both brew clean cups of coffee. I mean, what more could you ask for?  Well, I wouldn't be Sprometheus if I didn't just dig into the details that no one else does, so in this video I'll be running some tests on both brewers to see what, if any differences that ten degrees makes in your final cup. Of course, I have some guesses, and maybe you do too, but there is only one way to find out. So hit play on the video above and let's dig into this brand new brew comparison!
