Starbucks® Reserve Pour-Over Cone
A nice pour over
I ordered this pour over because it was large enough to hold a #4 filter and because it is good looking.
Makes a great cup of coffee since I make a couple of large cups at a time. Drawbacks are it's a bit heavy and the handle rather narrow.

Drip hole too big
I really wanted to have a ceramic pour-over cone, as I hate the idea of my coffee running past a plastic cone on its way into my cup... plastic chemicals leaching into my coffee? No thanks.
But I'm disappointed with this particular one: the water runs through it too quickly, and consequently, my coffee isn't strong enough. I've been tearing off two layers of paper filter to add over the hole at the bottom, underneath my regular filter, to try to slow the water flow down some. I'm disappointed.
I don't want to spend the money to ship it back, and I don't have extra money in my life to just buy something else.

Great Product with one issue...
Bought this to complete my setup. The unit is great and of very good quality. I enjoy the Reserve logo as subtle art.
I had previously purchased the Wood Pour-Over Stand and #4 Cone Set which comes with a #4 Starbucks porcelin all white pour over unit. This purchase was to complete the setup that can hold 2 units.
However the cone that came with the Wood set has a deep rim diameter (2 inch) on bottom so it fits in the precut hole in the stand.
This Reserve unit has a very short but larger diameter rim (2.75 inch) than the precut hole. So while you can line it up so it flows well, there is nothing to prevent it from sliding around side to side while sitting on the top of the stand.

simple to use, fast coffee
I'm new to pour overs but wanted something for when making only one cup instead of french press. The design is nice but probably best on a wider mug than a typical coffee cup or tumbler. I would be nervous pouring into those. It went through quicker than I had expected but worked out great and made delicious coffee.
It is also perfect when making that one cup of decaf for the one guest who doesn't want caffeine or the guest who wants mild and everyone else wants bold.
