    V60 - What type to buy and should I go for mesh or paper?

    Hi guys,

    Looking at eBay and other websites, I see plenty of V60 variants.
    I like the all-in-one designs but I'm not sure if there are pros/cons to this over the classic dripper and pot design.

    For the classic design, would you use the plastic dripper or ceramic/glass?

    Lastly, does anyone have any experience with mesh filter vs. paper filter?

    Looking at eBay, I'm interested in eBay link removed as per Site Posting Policy
    But before I commit to buying, I'm really interested to hear about your experiences and what would you recommend.

    v60-02, plastic, paper filters. plastic is the best at heat retention. the advantage of the traditional design is that you can lift the whole device off the carafe after you finish brewing. the chemex-style v60 brewer you posted may be a little hard to clean - that's the issue with all-in-ones. you can sit the normal one on a mug if you want - it's pretty cool like that.

    Either of them will do depending on how you want to use it. You don’t really need the glass carafe if you’re only going to be making a single drink each time, but they’re not particularly expensive so I guess it’s good to have the option. This is the exact set up I have and it’s great. The plastic V60 with the paper filters is the way to go. Watch a tutorial on YouTube for how to use it properly. There’s good ones by people like Scott Rao, Matt Perger and Chris Baca along with many others. Personally I find Scott Rao’s method gives the best results, but I do vary it at times.
