It comes with a coaster and a lid. The coaster keeps the counter from getting any stray drips, and the lid keeps the coffee hot while it’s steeping and after you’ve served the first cup. I get two medium-sized cups out of a full cone of water, and the second is almost as hot as the first. Ridiculously easy to clean and the coffee is fantastic. Mom likes it too. We both say “go get one.” The Clever Coffee Dripper takes a number 4 paper cone filter, so order some of those too.
I also like the Aeropress. Dad introduced me to this one. Perfect if you want to make one really great cup of coffee at a time.
