Hi John! Love the videos lately, watched nearly all of them.

A suggestion from someone who uses pourovers frequently. Your cone might work with a fabric filter, but most of the pourover filters on the market are paper, of which there are two main types. One is a a true cone shape (like those made for a Hario V60 or Chemex) where the hole at the bottom of the ceramic cone is wide open, like an inch in diameter.

The other type (like for a Bonmac or Melitta) has a flat, narrow bottom. So if you picked two spots inside your cone a bit to pull out and give it a "long bottom" instead of a cone, the other filters would fit.

Did that make any sense? Keep up the good work!

A coffee wholesaler came into the tile shop where I work, inquiring about custom tasting cups. Chief tile man showed him a coffee funnel he'd made (which was beautiful). The coffee wholesaler said it needed the ridges inside, but I cannot remember the reason why. It was something about the flow, speeding or slowing, as I recall. I checked the link you had and those have the interior ridges too. Maybe leaving throwing rings would serve the same function, unless they need to be vertical. Sorry I can't remember the reason - naomi

Maybe so the coffee gets out and it doesn't soak and get bitter? Thanks for the tip.
