Stefanos Domatiotis is one of the best pour-over coffee brewers in the world. He’s won a World Brewer’s Championship and more national brewing competitions in his native Greece than are worth counting. His next project is a pour-over brewer designed for people who suck at brewing pour-over.
Domatiotis’s Gem Series leans more into simplicity than most of its craft-focused competition. A hole is cut out of the lid over the brew basket, which limits how far outside the center of the grinds you can pour (water running down the side of the brewer and missing the brew bed is one of the most common mistakes beginners make).
