Details

The Bee House Dripper has become a favorite of many in the coffee world over the last decade. Its ceramic construction is attractive, approachable, and practical for nearly any application. Created for by-the-cup brewing, the Bee House brewer provides a fresher alternative to automated coffee makers.

The Large BeeHouse dripper takes a #2 or #4 cone filter, while its smaller counterpart is compatible only with the #2. Either of these can be selected after adding the dripper to your cart. For more filters, visit our Melitta Coffee Filters listing

 

Features

Brew Method: Pour Over

Large Beehouse Dripper

Design

The Bee House Dripper employs a wedge design with two bottom drain holes. The dripper also features slightly raised edges along each side of the wedge. In order to help avoid overflowing the cup or decanter being brewed into, Bee House has provided two openings on either side of the base to allow the person brewing to see the brewed coffee level.

Technique & Brewing Parameters

We recommend pouring just enough water to wet the coffee grounds and letting it sit for 30-45 seconds or until the coffee bloom deflates. At this point begin pouring slowly in concentric circles until the water volume is near the top, slow the pour rate and keep the dripper full until the desired water volume has been poured. For beginning brewing parameters we recommend 36-42 grams of coffee (medium grind), 600-700 mL of water, 200-205° F water , and a 3:00-3:30 total brew time.

Advantage

The design of the Bee House dripper is quite forgiving and allows for a tasty, properly-extracted cup without an exceedingly refined pouring technique. This has led many high-volume shop owners to choose the Bee House dripper. Most conveniently, its filters are commonly carried at neighborhood grocery stores.

As good as I remember it to be

Bought the Yellow Pepper version and it really pops on my counter. I paired it up with a 800ml Hario Server and a Hario V60 Kettle. Only complaint I have is that it is listed as a Bee House but says "Zero Japan" on label instead.

Simple and cute!

Works well for one cup of coffee. It’s not made in the USA but it’s not made in China, either which was my goal. This one is made in Japan.

My favorite dripper!

I've been looking to get away from a plastic dripper for a while, but none of the ceramic cones I'd seen had a view space to see how full the cup was without lifting it up. I was so happy to find this Zero Japan (formerly Bee House) dripper, and I love the sunny yellow color. You can see into the cup from either side (good for me since I'm a lefty). I use the large size with a #2 filter. I love this dripper!

Glad I made the purchase

I’ve used this with my #2 filters to brew coffee hot and to brew it over ice in the Japanese style. Unlike many of the other drippers I sow at other retailers, I like that both sides are open to see the liquid line in the cup below. I’d recommend this coffee dripper to a friend. Also, Prima’s shipping process was fast. I got my dripper sooner than I thought. Great product and company.

Bee House Ceramic Dripper

I ordered it to avoid using a heated plastic filter, and because this one is lead-free. It's an attractive-looking dripper, and a good size--fits no. 4 paper filters. The only caveat is that it looks like it could crack if it slips, so after drying I don't leave it in the dish rack too long, but place it in a safe cupboard (even on some bubble wrap).

My boyfriend loves it as do I. He did expect for it to be big enough to make 2 cups of coffee since he bought the large size but find it makes about 1 8 oz cup of coffee. Still pleased and would recommend

I loved this pour-over ceramic dripper the moment it arrived! From the color, the quality and of course the delicious coffee it produced...it's a keeper. Maybe I need another one in eggplant or green?

Beehouse Dripper

This was my first foray into the world of pour over and I am loving it so far. Coming from using a french press daily, I am really enjoying the clean cups extracted from the beehouse. The size is also perfect so that I don't have to throw any coffee out when i leave for work

Small Bee House Ceramic Coffee Dripper

I have a Hario V60 but use grocery store decaffeinated grounds so decided the V60 is overkill. The Bee House sounded like it might be easier to use. I have used it several times per day for the past week and love it. It is very forgiving and gives a constantly great cup. I like my coffee brewed with Dunkin Donuts decaffeinated grounds much better than the coffee from any coffee house in our town and at least equal to any cup of coffee that I have tried in Boston.

The Best

Bee House was the only available ceramic dripper for a long while. Others have followed, but this one is still the best for its light weight and efficient design. And now, colors!

Perfect for a simple, single cup of pourover

Bought the #2 Bee House dripper 2 weeks ago. Used it multiple times, and love that it makes the perfect amount for just my morning cup of coffee. Not as finicky as I've heard and read some other pourover methods can be, and much more portable and easier to store than say a Chemex decanter. Definitely wouldn't be big enough for any more than 1 person to use unless you of course refilled the grinds, but for me, this is perfect.

Smooth......

No more bitter coffee. Pouring very hot water over coffee makes for a very smooth tasting result. Takes a little longer, but worth it ! !

Just what I've been looking for

For years, no kidding, I was looking for a single cup coffee maker. I remember a friend years ago who had a plastic single cup dripper - and I imagined that was the only kind available. So I had thought all these years that that was the only kind I would ever find. BUT, your ceramic drip coffee maker is so much better! Just what I wanted!

Graceful and non-reactive

Great flavor for pour-over coffee maker, very simple and light. I was concerned about managing a porcelain cone, but it makes me focus on my handiwork first thing in the morning. Works best with #4 cone (I got the large one), but I can also cram the ruffled filters in it. I would like a longer handle on it, as I have big hands, but just a minor recommendation. Have a bowl or plate ready to set the dripper on after you finish brewing. I heat up only a cup-full of water at a time, so don't have to worry about overflowing the cup. So much easier to clean up than a fussy automatic brewer. Adds to the Zen-like experience, hah!

Very pretty and practical.

This drip per makes very nice coffee! I am not an "expert", and I know I am not doing it the precise and proper way (I just put in my coffee gounds (NOT hand-milled, but ground at the grocery store) and pour in the hot water.). I am especially happy that this coffee dripper has the cut-outs to see how much coffee is in the cup beneath. This is a very important feature in my opinion. My last coffee dripper had this feature also, but was plastic. I wanted a porcelain one so I was happy to pass the old one on to a friend who actually preferred the plastic (for travel purposes). I'm very happy with my purchase!

Quick, delicious coffee

I had been using another single cup drip coffee product for many years, but thought it was time to try another brand. I'm so glad I did! The Bee House Dripper makes a more flavorful cup of coffee in less time. I wish I had changed brands long ago.

Smaller than expected

I was very surprised when I opened the box and saw how "small" this dripper was. If I had a "do over" I would get the next largest size. That being said, this dripper works so much better and quicker than my current plastic #2 Melita dripper. A #2 coffee filter sticks up quite a bit from the top of the drip, but still works very well.

Excellent cup a "joe"

Have not made drip coffee for years. Someone gave me a lb of finely ground coffee, a brand that they routinely use. So, I looked over your site, picked the Bee, bought it and am now in the drip "business" again. Once or twice a day I make myself a delicious cup which is depriving some of my local coffee houses of my patronage, but I still spend a bunch of time in those places anyway. The Bee is doing everything I'd hoped for. It's easy to use, seems to hold the water in the ground beans for an optimal amount of time, and when the process is done I have a full-bodied, flavorful cup, not too strong, not weak, just about right. I've experimented with the amount of coffee that I put in the Melitta filter and have got that down pat. So, all in all, I'm happy with my purchase. Now I just need to find a carafe that the Bee will sit on (it does not sit on some of my mugs where the mouth of the mug is a little wide) and I can then make two cups at a time. Oh, and btw, my main guest at home, a very old friend who likes her cup every day, thinks that the coffee I make her with the Bee is very smooth and flavorful. Need I say more? Thanks, people.

Well made but poor design

While the coffee dripper is well made, it does have a handle that is not well designed. It's very hard to hold (not big enough to grip well) and slippery. However when you reach down to hold if by the sides, they can be pretty hot. I half expect that it will slip one of these days and break.

not user friendly

I purchased this item last month and I am a bit disappointed. The handle is hard to hold. The part that sits on your coffee mug limits the type of coffee mug you can use, and the shape of the base is more oval than round. I prefer the Cilio porcelain coffee dripper, it is less expensive and works better for me.

Doesn‰Ûªt fit the carafe

I bought the very pretty dripper and a prima thermos carafe as a gift. We love the carafe, but the dripper only fits on a coffee cup. But maybe that is what it is meant for, so my mistake in that case.

A big disappointment...

I looked forward to being able to brew a cup of coffee that I could enjoy. What I wound up with was some of the worst tasting coffee I have ever had. I tried several different times with various amounts of coffee and water from different sources and it still tasted awful. I would have returned it, but I threw out the packaging that it came in. I was also disappointed that there was no instructions or any sort of literature with the coffee dripper. I'm sorry to have to write such a review, but I am really disappointed with the product...

Bee House Ceramic Coffee Dripper

This dripper was recommended to me by a close friend. He knew I had no experience with pour over coffee, but wanted to get rid of my drip coffee machine that harbored gunk where I couldn't clean, and took up precious counter space. He explained to me how the Bee House Dripper helps self-regulate the brew time allowing me to get a good cup of coffee in spite of my sloppy/inexperienced technique simply due to it's design. It has definitely lived up to the description I was given, and I can easily clean every nook and cranny of this dripper. I've had good coffee, brewed directly into my mug, and have gained back my precious counter space. I have both the small and large models and use them both regularly.
