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.

Praises for the Walküre Bayreuth coffee pot.

My cousin Natalie bought a Walküre Karlsbad in the 1970s when she was in Bayreuth. I had wanted one, but only recently discovered they are still produced and that the ingenious porcelain filter system is featured in a more modern design, the Bayreuth. For our instant gratification world, the filtering is slow. But what a difference slow brewing makes. Buy one and see.

Makes 2 large cups of full-flavored coffee or makes concentrate.

I told my wife about this type of brewing system & that it was very similar to the one my Dutch parents had in our family while we were all growing up. I always remember them using it to make the best tasting coffee anywhere. Friends always remarked how good it tasted - no bitterness, and just full of full-bodied coffee flavor. Of course, the better the quality of coffee they used, the better it tasted, but even cheap brands tasted good! So my wife bought me one of these this Christmas, and we've been enjoying outstanding coffee ever since! You can also make concentrate instead of full cups, and put the pot in the fridge for use later. Just boil some water & add concentrate to taste - weak or strong, your choice! Excellent system & so simple too.

Makes Good Brew & Looks Cool

It took me a few attempts to get coffee/water ratios to where I like but easy enough to use. A bit fussy to clean since there is no paper filter so there is that trade off. I managed to drop the lid onto our tile floor the first time I used the brewer but amazingly it did not break. I'm so happy to get rid of our giant coffee maker and just have this small brewer on our counter. Note to PRIMA: it would be helpful to add dimensions to your description. I called your customer service and the guy I talked to could not provide me with that info either.

Amazing coffee, very easy to use

I initially bought this based on environmental concerns (ceramic lattice rather than paper filer), so was very pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and quality of the coffee. It has consistently provided the best coffee I've had to date. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Perfect cup of coffee

I've been using my new coffee maker for a week and have been loving it. Every cup has been consistently delicious and fun to make with this beautiful ceramic design. It actually takes less coffee than my french press!

Love at first drip !

This Bayreuth coffee maker is my third pour-over coffee maker after my Hario V60 and Chemex. Coffee came out surprisingly clean with very minimal residual. I use the same grind to what I normally use with Chemex. The good thing is you don't have to bother with pouring technique. It makes things much easier when compared with a typical pour-over cone. Within 5 minutes using only ground coffee and hot water you have an excellent cup of coffee for your day. Product looks great. Well designed and very nice to touch. I wish they make the brewing chamber in glass so I can see the actual brewing process from the outside. Would be nice if they find ways to keep the lid secured with the pot. It slips very easily when I pour out the coffee.

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!

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.

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.

Highest Quality, nothing mixing with what you drink; Very expensive though

As mentioned in the review title, things don't get better imho that this wrt. quality and cleanliness / un-mixing with anything of what you drink. However, just for this feature - a cutout filter grates in the porcelain, similar with some tea filters but finer spacing - the price is high. I wish they sold just the filter to put / use over your cup or mug.

Unique Coffee maker!!!

I love the design. Easy to use and clean. Just the only thing I got some coffee grains in my coffee but it was my fault I grind the beans to finely. So make sure when you grind the coffee it is for a coffee maker like this but it does make a difference. But overall very nice product and the fact you don't need filters is a plus.

Walkure Bayreuth Brewer - Utility and Quality

The Walkure Bayreuth Porcelain Pour Over Brewer is an elegantly designed coffee brewing system of quality construction. More importantly, I think one can create a good to very good brew of coffee with this apparatus. In full disclosure, while I have always taken an epicurean delight in the aromas of coffee, I am not a long-time coffee drinker or experienced brewer. But recent science in the health benefits of coffee and experiencing coffee in Italy on several occasions won me over. My wife gave me a simple pour-over cup filter that I have learned to use to good effect, but after taking that to work I wanted to replace it with another for the home. As somewhat of a purist I was intrigued that the Walkure uses a two-staged ceramic filter system that does a remarkable job of filtering the coffee, leaving only a small amount of fine silt to get through to the pot or cup, thereby enabling one to dispense with paper filters and presumably increase the amount of precious oils into the brew, not to mention the ecological advantages of not having to use paper. As has been mentioned elsewhere on this forum, temperature control and grind are critical in using this system (as it is in most others for that matter). A too-coarse grind I found does not produce the richness I prefer and a too-fine grind can adversely slow the drip time. After finding a suitable grind I began to deal with temperature which is more complicated with this system versus a simple cup filter system due to the fact that the Walkure uses a water diffuser as well as filter chamber. I think the diffuser is a good idea and helps to achieve an even bloom. There is also very thick ceramic lid that sits on top to help preserve heat. Pre-heating the system and maintaining a constant water temperature source obviously helps maintain the brew temperature during the brewing process. Another option that I discovered is that the filter chamber will actually fit snugly on a number of my cups! (for example on my Fish Eddy, Mercola Healthy Chef, Starbucks tall 16 0z and a British Library cup with the music notation of Henry the VIII motet!). So one can bypass the pot altogether, and actually the manufacturer sells a simple cup filter system. So the utility of the system turned out to be another plus. In addition, the ceramic lid also fits nicely on some of the above mugs to help keep my drink warm, and I've always looked for such a lid but never could find one. I also have to confess apostasy in that I've used the pot and lid to steep tea after which I pour through a filter and it works great for that purpose. I like that the Walkure is white making it easy to see stains and that it cleans up very easily. It was an extravagant purchase for me to replace a simple pour-through cup device so I was glad to find additional ways to use the system. Using the ceramic filter was the impetus for me and to be able to dispense with paper filters.

Beautiful to look at. Be sure to pre-heat it first.

This is a lovely coffee brewer. However, the porcelain material really sucks up the heat and is very cold to the touch when you pick it up. It must be preheated before brewing the coffee, or the beverage will be too cold.

very stylish little manual brewer.

So I've been playing around with this walkure for a few weeks now and I'm really impressed. This device leaves very little sediment in the final cup even though it doesn't use a paper filter. The cup you'll get from it is balanced, thick, and usually quite oiled. Definitely geared towards low and mid tones of the cup but if you have a coffee with good acidity it'll compliment that as your cup cools. If you love french press, you'll probably love this device. However, if you're a v60 enthusiast and love clean bright tones, the walkure will probably let you down. The only downfall of this brewer is that you'll probably need to boil a second kettle of water to pre-heat this thing because despite it's small size, it is actually pretty heavy porcelain so it takes a good amount of water to get it up to brew temp. 8.75 out of 10 -Adam Walsh Roastmaster@JBCcoffeeroasters

Walkure Bayreuth - a truly fantastic coffeemaker

I debated over whether to buy on this item, but hindsight has shown that getting the Bayreuth was the correct choice. For me, this maker has proven to be my favorite means of preparing coffee. The result is a full bodied brew with only a fraction of the fines one gets from a coffee press. The method is so very simple and the result is so very satisfying. I own (or have at one point or another) essentially every means of coffee preparation sans the K-cup ( and similar single serves). After all, we are talking actual coffee preparation and not instant gratification. My sense of satisfaction is met spot on with the Walkure method. When it comes to coffee and all of the associated paraphernalia, we each tend to think of our opinions as facts. Given this to be the case, your mileage may vary with the Walkure. Unfortunately, at slightly over $100 for the 350 mL version it is expensive to learn whether this method is for you.

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.

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.

It's OK

Makes good coffee. However, even though the lower part of the coffee maker holds the amount of coffee I want to make I can not make that much because the upper part does not hold enough water and I don't have the patience to wait for the upper part to drip out and refill it. I thought I would suggest just making the upper part longer but that would make it top heavy. The dimensions need some work.

This is a fine piece of gear. Easy to use, easy to clean, looks great and makes decent coffee. Does it make better coffee than a french press, other pour overs or a drip unit? Not really. Just does what it does well.

I thought this would make better coffee. But the grounds still come through the filter and the coffee is not any better than made in a cheap cone

Love this!

My cheap electric coffee maker suddenly died leaving me stranded and I decided to look for something new that didn't contain any plastic. I've never used a pour-over coffee maker before, nor did I even know what one was though I used my broken coffee maker for a few weeks in exactly this manner until I found this as a replacement. I thought I was going to buy a Chemex but it's dependence on paper filters was annoying. I read/watched a text/video review from another coffee house of the 5 "best" pour over coffee makers made by another coffee supply house and the Walkure was one of them (but not videoed). I did some more research and thought the idea of the porcelain filters was quite novel, and I love the fact that the entire thing is hand made in Germany. I found the price very expensive compared to that of the manufacturer, however I would have had to wait 30 days. Service, shipping and tracking from Prima Coffee was great and I was excited to receive my new coffee maker! I screwed up my first few cups learning how to use it properly, however used correctly and once the right measure of coffee determined it really makes a nice cup of coffee! It does require some patience and interaction to make the coffee but so far that has been quite fun and makes me better appreciate the cup. If more than one person is to enjoy the coffee a second, or larger model would definitely be required.
