Starbucks® Classic Pour-Over Brewer & Mug Set
I like the ease of the pour over. The cup is odd shaped but it works for this set.

I am a regular customer of Starbucks and have been impressed with their quality and efficiency. I admit, I have not used this product, but I purchased it as a gift and the shipping was very fast and it was packaged very well. I look forward to enjoying it with my friend, but am challenged to break into the beautiful wrapping it came in. Overall, great service and great product, I would suggest it!

Cracked after two months
I bought this from a local starbucks store by the end of August--and it worked well until it cracked like a week ago, when I poured hot water over it.
I was so confused if I should not have poured hot water? But then how was I supposed to make coffee without pouring hot water over the cone? And yet it worked fine for two months... I am so disappointed at the durability of the product.

Not as expected
I contacted Starbucks, two locations, before purchasing this item and specifically asked if this was a Tea Steeper also. However, when I received this item it's only a pour over brewer, there is no way to allow the tea to steep. This is a very sturdy, durable cup but it would be more versatile if the cup had a stopper for the tea to steep. Next time I will be more specific when talking to the representatives.

The cone has a hole that traps water.
There is a hole in the bottom of the cone that can fill the actual cone with water. There is no way for the water to escape. I have tried shaking the cone but the water just drips. I'm assuming the hole is to help the coffee drip faster considering that the cup and cone almost form a seal when in use. Only thing I can recommend is do not submerge the cone in water when washing.
