This great product allows you to brew coffee directly into the serving vessel in dripping style. It is easy to use and also includes a washable, heat-resistant rubber band made of silicone for extra grip and heat protection. The decanter is extremely durable and light in weight. The high quality borosilicate glass ensures an easy pour-over once the coffee has been brewed. This decanter is great for brewing both hot or iced coffee. The conical shape allows for deeper layering of coffee grounds, and its spiral ridges and lack of flow restriction allow the user to pour the water quickly for a delicate body or slowly for a heavier flavor.
