Makes me feel like I am drinking the best espresso ever! I like my coffee black and I live how it tastes.
I have used many phins and this design has both the bottom plate and floating top plate. It is a genuine Vietnamese phin - the original. The name Nguyen says it all! The second filter as the bottom plate works to regulate water flow more evenly across the coffee area. The floating top plate is easier to clean and more maintenance free compared to other designs. Love it!
Making coffee with this Phin Filter feels old school, and more ‘authentic’ than with my Mr. Coffee machine. I kinda like it!
Which has become more and more important to me as the pandemic has progressed.
I originally purchased a phin as a way to reduce our paper consumption, but now I am also grateful as using one gives me an opportunity to slow down and be present in the moment. Following the instructions, I use 14gm of coffee grounds with every serving and have yet to be displeased with the brew. Thank you!
