A lot of new companies and products have emerged since the original version of this article was published in 2015. We’ve re-evaluated our original picks and added a few new ones.
Pourovers give you complete control over the coffee brewing process. You can decide how many cups you want to make and even how how the water is poured over the coffee grounds for optimal extraction. However, to take full advantage of this benefit, you need a gooseneck kettle designed for pourover. Here’s a look at some of our favorite pourover kettles, in case you don’t already have one.
When we looked at pourover kettles, we evaluated them on four criteria:

If you can afford it and not compromise your budget on that upgrade grinder, by all means, go for it. If not, stick to our original 3 picks.
