The Tricolate offers precision, simplicity, and exceptionally high extraction yields thanks to its unique, flat-bottom construction. Its wide and shallow brew bed creates ideal conditions for even extraction, while the dispersion screen distributes water evenly across the brew bed without the need for precision pouring accessories, like a goosneck kettle. Its relatively hands-off appraoch make it a fantastic option for those who want to pour and walk away!
