Overview

Ahh, the beauty of innovation. Some ideas are so simple that it takes a while before anyone realizes their worth. Enter, the Duo Coffee Steeper. A bold new combination of pour-over cone and French press, the Duo delivers a truly unique immersion brewing experience. The duo's top chamber holds a steel reverse-cone filter and a watertight locking design. Simply fill the top chamber with grounds and hot water, steep for four minutes, and twist to filter coffee from grounds into the glass bottom chamber. You get the big, round flavor profile of a French press with none of the messy grounds or slowly over-extracting coffee. Likewise, the freshness of pour-over flavor is preserved without the need for hands-on control or a paper filter. Brewing delicious coffee is a simple steep and twist away.

Features and Functionality

  • Pour-press Action - A unique combination of press-style immersion and pour-over gravity filtering results in a cup empty of fines but full of flavor.
  • Going Paperless - A reusable steel cone filter means no more paper filters.
  • Dual Chamber - Separating coffee grounds in the top chamber stops extraction when you're ready to drink, ensuring a bitter-free brewing experience.
Pros
  • Twist and Go - The over/under design of the Duo means you don't have to press or pour like traditional methods. Simply fill with grounds and coffee, steep and twist to filter coffee out of grounds.
  • No Dregs - The reverse cone filter and silicone mounting ring collect coffee more grounds for a cleaner cup.
  • Cold Brewer - The steeping chamber design of the Duo makes it a great pick for cold brewing overnight.
Cons
  • Messy Messy Messy - The Duo's design is clever, but it has quite a few parts to clean. The silicone parts also tend to collect dust.
  • No fill lines - We wish the brew top had water lines for smaller portion sizes.
How Does it Compare?

The Duo gives you less fines than a French press and a rounder flavor than a pour-over. Not to mention its unique design is sure to draw a lot of interest from guests.

Tips and Tricks

Add ice to the lower chamber for delicious Japanese style pour-over iced coffee.

Is this any better or worse than the softbrew?
B M on Sep 6, 2016
Best Answer: I'd say better, as soon as you twist the duo steeper it stops extracting from the grounds in the upper chamber. On the soft brew, you have to remove the lid and filter by hand to prevent overextraction.

Hope this helps!

Well Designed Alternative to "The Plunger"Review by Dave

I bought this at the SCG shop about 5 months ago and have used it every day. The coffee is very good quality, that of a coffee press, if you dose correctly, use the right temperature and time properly.

Despite the mesh cone, and even if you use a professional grinder on a coarse setting, you will still get some fines in the bottom of your cup. However, it's much less and a lot finer than you get with a french press.

It's actually a lot easier and faster to clean than Gail would to indicate in the video. I can rinse it out and have it in the drying rack in about 30 seconds. And it's dishwasher safe. It must be completely free of grinds if the cone is to seat properly - a lesson I learned the hard way.

Because of the modern, unconventional look, people often ask about it and want to try a cup. And it makes a satisfying gurgling noise when you open the filter.

As an bonus feature not mentioned anywhere, it makes an excellent cold brew. I double the fresh ground coffee and let it steep overnight in the fridge. Cut 1:1 with hot water. Amazingly smooth cups, fewer fines, plus it doubles the brewing capacity.

Downsides.... The price is kind of on the steep side (see what I did there?). The capacity is just 24 oz, which they're calling 4 cups, but that's only two talls, or one and a half grandes, so you better learn to share in a bigger household. This puts it somewhere between a single server and your average coffee maker but within reach of a traditional coffee press. (Posted on 1/20/2017)
