Something like the Clever Coffee Dripper in glass? Or, best ceramic filter cone?

I just tried the Clever Coffee Dripper and loved it. I purchased it with travel in mind, but am happy enough with the results that I'd like to use it every day. However, I'd prefer not putting 200 degree water through plastic every day.

Is there anything that has the Clever Coffee Dripper drip stop mechanism in glass?
If not, it seems that the 1 hole ceramic filter cones would drip out slowest.

Amongst the ceramic coffee filter cones, which do you prefer and why?

  1. LOVE my Clever Coffee Dripper.

    I don't know if you'll find a glass equivalent but I've been making coffee with my plastic one a couple times a day for well more than a year with the hottest water I can boil up. No probs to report. And if and when there is one, $15 for a replacement really isn't painful in the least.

    I replace glass measuring beakers regularly from thermal shock. And we've been thru god-only-knows how many coffee making appliances from the simple tech & reasonable to the sophisticated & silly expensive. I liked many of them for different features and capabilities. They all needed replacement at some point too. None of them made better coffee than the CCD.

    1. I bought a swiss gold filter at peets coffee for $11 and it works really well. No paper filters

      1. Bonavita makes a porcelain version. Bonavita BV4000ID Porcelain Immersion Coffee Dripper. It has a manual open and close valve as opposed to the valve on the clever coffee dropper that actuated when you place it on the cup
