The coffee grounds don't have a chance to form pools and over-extract. The fact that it's very attractive adds to the experience.
Use quality paper filters and pre-wet the filter before brewing to remove the paper taste. Don't use the cheap paper filters; there will be a iceable degradation in taste.
This is a great portable dripper option. I prefer stainless steel over any plastic or rubber option and for durability. This comes with a small mesh bag which the dripper collapses into to keep it collapses and allows you to pack easily.
I took this product camping, it was great for minimal to carry, easiest cleanup coffee while camping.
Pros: collapsible; light; strong; set up and use. Most of all it makes great coffee.
