- Geyser or steam;
That first invented representative. Consists of two compartments. In the lower part of the water is poured. Coffee is poured from the top of the filter, then it is placed on the bottom. Next, set the coffee pot.
When boiling water, it will go to the coffee pot through the filter, which will receive the finished drink. You can choose between electric - it will be plugged into the outlet, and a simple coffee maker - it will need to be put on the stove.
