Walkure

Germany has an impressive history of innovations in coffee brewing. Over a century ago, a young housewife named Frau Melitta Bentz became a successful businesswoman when she filtered coffee grounds with paper for the first time and patented her now-famous design. Cafes around the world testify to German genius by brewing with Dr. Peter Schlumbohm’s widely celebrated Chemex Coffee Maker. Yet another elegant tradition, which we’re now excited to offer, has been enjoyed by coffee-lovers for over 100 years: Walküre’s handmade porcelain coffee makers.
Walkure Bayreuth Porcelain Pour Over Brewer is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality brewing that easy to use and clean I purchased this to supplement my Chemex and Clever-dripper. I love how clean the cup of coffee is and that it doesn't use a paper filter for it. Brewing is easy with the water disbursement. While it's small (typically only brewing about 0.5L), the clean-up is quick, important when brewing for just 1 person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit pricey, but I feel in love with it. I waited three months to receive my coffee dripper. At the end it was worth the wait. This dripper makes you appreciate the entire coffee making experience. Its easy to clean, no more filters and its classy modern lines are proudly displayed on my kitchen counter at all times. I've been looking for a dripper like this one for a long time, since I am a health nut and dont want to brew my coffee through a plastic coffee maker that fills my coffee with unhealty toxins. I am sure this product will last forever, thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern Look, Overpriced My brewers include presspots, a Hario with rag, a Chemex with paper, a Nespresso and now this Walkure. As a functional coffee brewer it works just fine, producing the same clean, clear coffee as the Hario/rag and Chemex/paper produce. Some might say too clean and clear for not having a paper or rag filter, as very little of the coffee oils penetrate the bed of grounds. If you like only presspot coffee you might be disappointed. The grind needs to be finer than for presspots, but coarser than for the Hario; about the same as for a Chemex. This gives the perfect 5-6 minute drip for 23 oz coffee. Demanding piping-hot coffee, I pre-heat all brewers and cups. The Walkure requires more pre-heating than the others owing to it being a more massive heat sink. The first fill of boiling water down the tower will level off at about 170F; the second fill at about 190F. Being ceramic, it heats and cools more slowly than the Chemex and Hario brewers. The air temperature during brewing remains at about 170F and the final coffee comes out around 180F. To keep it hot after brewing I put the brewer on an electric burner set on low, with a wire grid under it. If you use a gas range you will need a thick steel plate as well. One reviewer lamented the cooling effect of the Walkure. Well, such are the laws of physics. There is after all no such thing as good, fast coffee. Choose one or the other. Be sure to pour slowly. With no paper filter, you cannot stir up the bed of grounds, else the water will flow straight through. The top distributor works well to prevent this but it cannot totally prevent it if you pour quickly and fill up the filter, as if this were a dripper instead of a pour-over. Ignore all the ridiculous advice about weighing coffee and water to a gram. Trust your eyeballs and experience. Ratings: Function: 5 stars; Delivers excellent coffee and is of perfect capacity for 1 or 2. Convenience: 3 stars; Extra pre-heating recommended and high sensitivity to grind size and pour rate due to lack of a paper filter. Easy to clean but a bottle brush is needed for the lower pot unless you have tiny hands. Human Interface: 3 stars; it is assymetrical, awkward for a left-handed person to pour. Handle is angled slightly up, giving it a tendency to slide out of your hand. Pinch it between your fingers and thumb with the thumb on the lid. The lid has no tab. The spout is well formed and sufficiently angled to overcome surface tension so coffee does not dribble down the side, even when pouring from a full pot. This may be the only pot in the world that actually achieves this functionality. Cost: 1 star; A brewer that delivers the same coffee as another costing 1/4 the price has a low value-to-cost ratio. If the world's largest retailer had it it would no doubt come from China, be fragile, and coffee would dribble down the side. But it would sell for $19.95, with a phony baloney tag attached indicating it is reduced from $22.95. Style: 5 stars; Very attractive and nice looking. Unlike the Hario and Chemex this is a brewer you would want to show off and display. Consider storing it in your china cabinet instead of your kitchen cabinet. Quality of build: 5 stars; Not "fine china" but serves the purpose. It is sturdy and will not break easily. Will withstand tapping, knocking and clinking. Handles are well embedded in the body so they should not break off at the joint. Overall 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slick device Only two cups in, but i am enjoying it thus far. still calibrating the right grounds/water ratio, as well as speed at which i pour the hot water in. but not having to use filters is good for the enviro and the wallet. My only fear is that it is fragile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best manual drip I've used A classic french drip pot I bought in the French quarter in the early 80's, and later broke, used to be my favorite drip pot. This one is better, primarily because of the ceramic grid that slows the drip time and doesn't get clogged!

Is the .7L wider or just taller?  Wondering if the .7 will make a single cup (i.e.18g coffee - 305g h2o) as well as the .35? - Im thinking if it's wider the coffee bed could be too thin with an 18g dose and result in an uneven extraction.

Asked by: Justin
Hey, Justin. As the Walkure brewers get bigger, so does the diameter of the brew bed. The single will work perfectly with an 18g dose at a course grind, but when brewing with larger Walkures and using the same dose as you would in a small, you'll need to change your grind size to compensate for the more shallow brew bed.

How much water? No directions. How about some complete instructions. The ones that come with the machine are worthless. Help us make some coffee with our new makers please.

Asked by: Hawk
Use 1L for every 60g of coffee.  I typically use 30g to 0.5L or 500g water

What the best way to clean the Walkure Bayreuth for minimal mess and without harming the fragile-looking porcelain grid?

Asked by: Michele
Hi, Michele I use one at home, and after dumping the grounds in the trash, I generally wash it by hand with a sponge and dish soap. Just don't put too much pressure on that filter.
