This unique and beautifully designed pour-over device offers a filtration system unlike any other. Coarsely ground coffee is suspended over two porcelain grids, arranged one on top of the other, and neither paper, cloth, or metal are part of the equation. Everything is built right in, allowing for one of the most pure and simple brewing methods out there. Resting on the top chamber, a punctured bowl serves as a water dispersion head, encouraging even extraction. Conveniently, the entire apparatus can be separated for pouring. Any user, amateur or professional, will be delighted by the ease with which coffee is made through Walküre’s Karlsbad brewer. For a more modern style, see the Walkure Bayreuth.

Features:

  • 3 practical capacities: 280mL (9.47oz), 380mL (12.85oz), 850mL (28.75oz); add to cart to choose
  • Quality build: constructed entirely of porcelain; handmade in Germany
  • Easy to use: recommended for beginners or professionals
  • Self-contained brewer: requires no extra accessories
  • Timeless design: in use for decades

Includes: server, brew chamber with built-in filter, water dispersion plate, and lid.

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.

Here's the easy way I make coffee in the Walküre.

The instructions say you must: • thoroughly preheat the device with hot water • use coarse grounds • use water at 195-205 degrees • undergo a "pre-infusion" • aim for the center of the plate • pour the rest of the water using a timer, over the course of 3 minutes and 30 secs. No. I'm not going through all that. I've made it according to instructions and I've also made it my own way. My way is MUCH faster and tastes just as good. Here's how I make it with my large Walküre: I don't preheat the Walküre. That makes no difference, in my opinion. 1. I use fine grounds. Yes, fine grounds. 2. I boil the water in a 3-cup Pyrex (heat proof cup-vessel) in the microwave. Use less water for a smaller Walküre. The temperature doesn't matter. Just boil the water in the time-honored fashion of boiling water. Same as our grandparents have boiled water. Same as all humans have ever boiled water. 3. Put two or three large tablespoons of grounds in the Walküre. 4. Pour the water over it. No, you don't have to stand by an egg timer and look out the window for 3.5 minutes. Just slowly pour the water until it fills up. 5. Now you can drink the coffee. But you must place the still-draining top portion in a heat-proof bowl, dish, etc., where it will drain for a moment. 6. Pour your coffee and put the top back onto the Walküre. If you have a lot of drained coffee in your bowl/dish, just pour it back into the Walküre. 7. Pour the remaining water into the Walküre when it has drained further. There. Just as fast as pour-through coffee and you get all the flavor of the Walküre. I can detect coffee purists trembling with rage or growing faint. Well, don't complain until you've tried it my way. It should be noted that coffee made in this manner (unfiltered coffee) will raise the cholesterol level in the bloodstream. Filtered coffee, on the other hand, has little or no effect on cholesterol. The degree to which unfiltered coffee raises cholesterol is less than the effect of smoking or lack of exercise. But coffee made in this manner WILL measurably raise your cholesterol. You can google it yourself.

Makes great coffee

This makes excellent coffee, and when pre-heated with a couple of rounds of hot water, even retains heat long enough to finish it. This should be on the main page of the site: Prima-Coffee recruited its shipping team from Ace Novelty Co. of Wallawallawashington! Confirm your order, hit send and there it is on your doorstep, just like when Wile E. Coyote hangs up his phone.

This is my third Karlsbad coffee maker in 40 years

I can't stand to be without it! It makes the best tasting coffee. I ordered the larger size this time so that I can more easily make a larger amount when my friends drop by so they can enjoy it, too. I hope I will be able to purchase this product for many years to come. Kay

What I was looking for

I like a dark, rich, oily cup of coffee, New Orleans style, almost an espresso. This gives me what I love first thing in the morning. NOTE: I first put the coffeemaker into a bain marie (a copper bowl filled with hot water) before I add the coffe grounds and water. I find it makes all the difference! (1 coffee measuring spoon to 6 oz. water.)

Great Coffee Maker!

For almost two years, I've used this coffee maker on a daily basis. It takes a some getting use to, but after a few pots of coffee, you won't want to brew any other way!

More experiments needed...

A beautiful pot with elegant shape and color and unique filter-less feature. I tried several times but significant amount of fines make it through the porcelain mesh. I need more experiments to fine tune the grind size.

Teensy

Must be made for those Turkish coffee "shots". I ordered the largest size and have to do it twice so both of us can have a cup. Probably won't use it much.

So elegant … so challenging

My W(v)alküre Karlsbad (SKU) drip coffee maker in white ceramic, mineature classic Austrian/German Coffee-pot design, visually wooed me into purchase! AND as a charming visual, it must remain. Yes! Why? Well, by the time the coffee drips thru, it's cold to pour into my cup. AND I drink my coffee black so no cream is cooling coffee as well. AND you can't see how full the pot is getting as you add water a couple of times. Heating the pot first with hot water AND heating the future cup is an answer. BUT you know how fast YOU want yr coffee of a morn. It's more a "toy" than a reality. The permanent filter works well. I wish I'd been smarter re its heat issue. I'd actually like to return it. As that's "verboten", It'll probably become an interesting vase. OR maybe a real "Valküre" will thunder her horse down from the Elysian Fields, burial grounds of war heroes, and take up my wee pot for a more "heavenly" venture - where coffee never cools off more than tongue desires.
