time on the N or T traveling down to Sohberts as you will waiting in line at Blue Bottle's Ferry Building stand.
basically a giant pourover cone with a pressure-activated stopper at the
bottom ― produce a coffee that has the deep, pumped-up body produced by a French
press with the clean, grit-free taste of coffee made in a paper-filtered
pourover. (Here's a video showing how it works.) Sohberts' Clever brought out tropical-fruit
aromas in Equator's Chapada Diamantina that we haven't tasted in any
drippers as part of its multi-device slow bar and sells the device for $14. In addition, Sweet Maria's in Oakland, which has done the most to publicize the Clever dripper in the United States, also sells it for $13.20 (via mail order unless you can get to the warehouse during the few hours SM's opens to walk-in customers every week).
