Replicating your favorite coffee shop beverage at home is certainly easier said than done. Unless you know your way around some serious coffee equipment, it's often much easier to stick to the basics when you're preparing coffee at home. One of the simplest ways to do so is making pour over coffee.
All you'll need is the Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker—which is currently 38% off at Amazon—and a few minutes of your morning. To use the top-rated manual pour over coffee maker, just add freshly ground coffee to the filter, drizzle a bit of water in a circular motion over the coffee grounds to soak them, then add the rest of the water and let drip. In a few minutes, you'll be rewarded with coffee so refreshingly good you'll think you paid $7 for a cup.
The set comes with a heat-resistant borosilicate glass carafe, a stainless steel filter designed to extract all of coffee's subtle flavors, and a silicone band that wraps around the glass to protect your fingers from the hot coffee. Once you've used the pour over, just pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

Over 7,000 Amazon shoppers have given the pour over coffee maker a five-star rating, writing that they've made the "perfect cup coffee" and that it's "worth its weight in gold."
"I've been seeking that perfect cup of coffee for a while," one five-star reviewer shares. "I've ordered a slew of things from Amazon and finally I've found perfection. It turns out this pour over method brings out flavors largely lacking by standard drip coffee makers and hidden by bitterness in press coffee. The deal was sealed when I tested this year's Christmas blend from Starbucks in a French press, drip coffee maker, percolator, and this. The difference was night and day! So much flavor and so little bitterness."
"I have a Bodum French press that I really like, so it was an easy decision to try their pour over carafe," another shopper says. "I use this carafe multiple times a day and it is still going strong. Our coffee experience has never been better. I'm a chef, so food quality is my life. Let's just say that I cut no corners if it affects the integrity of the finished product. I have a French press and an Aeropress, and this pour over carafe is what gets the most use by far."
Whether you're looking to replace an old coffee maker or just want to start making pour over coffee, shop the Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker for just $19 while this deal lasts.
