Let’s support Sarah and Clay as they “Jigger” their handmade filter cones.

The Ximeno Long Beach DripperThe Ximeno Long Beach Dripper - glazed, smooth and carefully designed on the inside, rough and unique on the outside.

The Ximeno from Long Beach Dripper is a handmade pour-over filter cone brewing system.

It’s like the Hario filter cone. But it’s not. It’s not made of plastic or glass or even glossy ceramic.

It’s made with clay. And each filter cone is handmade by Sarah Alonzo or Clay Wood.

They throw each one over a mold, so the insides are identical, but the outside is always a little different. Throwing pots - or in this case a filter cone – over a mold is a process known as Jiggering.

Gotta love that word!

Anyway, Sarah and Clay are trying to raise money on Kickstarter so they can get their own equipment and studio.

Should we support them? I think so. For myself, I love entrepreneurs and makers who are trying something a little different.

And I really like the fact that every Ximeno filter cone they make is handmade and unique.

The interior of the cone has been designed to maximise the immersion of the coffee grounds and the extraction of all the finer flavors.

That’s good, but honestly it’s not the big attraction for me. I just love the idea of using a coffee maker that is handmade and uniquely my own.

And in my book it doesn’t do any harm that Sarah and Clay are completely nuts, as you can see in this video.

P.S.  Sarah – thanks for sending me my very own Ximeno Long Beach Dripper!
