This lustrous, lumpy coffee love machine is your ideal morning companion and conversation piece. How does it function? As a pour-over filter into a carafe, so you can expect a flavorful brew. Easy to pour and use with a paper filter and fresh ground coffee. Comes complete with coffeemaker, filter holder, 1/2 pound of coffee and 20 filters.
