Love these things, I've owned 2 but through clumsiness have broken both of them (Knocked one off the counter and dropped the other when I took it camping).

You received a thumbs down for this comment and I wonder what that means. How do thumbs down affect us? Maybe someone thought, "well that's not a good thing, I can't thumbs up his unfortunate loss of product, it's a bummer so he'll receive a thumbs down." but we take it as a negative intrinsically so we get bummed that someone didn't validate the comment positively.
I definitely did not wake up enough on Monday morning to fully understand this on the first go. But it did suck that he lost two of em, I do love these, have a CHEMEX one.

I bought one of these on deal last time and returned it for a Chemex. The bodom glass feels very thin and prone to breaking.

I have a smaller bodum and while I've generally liked it, I just replaced it with a V60 Drip Decanter (~$28). Wirecutter did a comparison and they didn't love this one, for reference.

"We tried the 34-ounce Bodum Pour Over primarily because it's comparable in size to the Chemex, and we wanted to give an option with a mesh, permanent filter another shot. But it was impossible to avoid a silty brew. Clean, sediment-free coffee is a must with pour-over, and the Bodum's underwhelming and strangely woody-tasting results led to a quick dismissal."

I have never seen these styles before. Do you have to slowly pour hot water in? This gives the grounds enough time to truly brew?

How would you compare this style to a French press? That is what I use now...or sometimes a Moka Pot.

You pour a little hot water to bloom coffee. Then about 30 seconds later you pour slowly. need to use pretty course ground, similar to a press.

Taste difference between a pour over like this and a French press (what I currently use)?

I just read up on it.

French Press: you get a bolder, stronger coffee and taste. It could be a little gritty.

Pour Over: little to no grit, and the taste is lighter.

I can verify. I've been out of Chemex filters so I used my Bodum carafe this morning for the first time in a long time and even with a rough grind, plenty of silt still gets through. It's why I stopped using it in the first place.

Are the bands just for style and grip? Or are they exposed to the hot water/coffee during the funneling process? Cork looks nice, but I wouldn't want to have it exposed to my coffee, absorbing coffee, etc.

French Press has more body. Pourover gives a much cleaner cup that lets you taste more distinct flavors in your beans. Pourover is better is most circumstances.

Unfortunately, this Bodum coffeemaker compromises the benefits you get from the pourover method. I used one for a few months and I could never get great coffee from it. The main problem is the steel mesh filter. It lets water thru too quickly so you get an underextracted, watery cup with a bunch of unwanted sediment. You can grind finer to compensate for this but it's hard to dial in for pourover. You can also try using a paper filter but none of them are made for this carafe so it causes all kinds of bubbling issues since the air doesn't have space to escape (the air tries to escape elsewhere, shooting small splashes of coffee all over your counter). A second problem is that the filter isn't all stainless steel. It has plastic on it. Even if it's BPA free, pouring extremely hot water over plastic has potential negative effects.

Pay a little bit more and you can get much better coffee from a Kalita Wave, Hario V60, or an Aeropress. If you want the carafe style, go w/ a Chemex even though it's much more expensive. You can also buy separate carafes for the Kalita, Hario, and Aeropress that make your coffee setup more modular for easier storage.

The rubber grip is on the outside of the glass.
