Rivers Cave Reversible with Wooden Stand - Red
Two drip patterns in one dripper.
The cave reversible for true coffee fanatics.
To the point that we’re worried about whether it will even sell well.
What is the cave?
The CAVE is a conical coffee dripper developed by Rivers.
It is notable for having a fairly narrow center angle of 50°.
This sharp conical shape results in a thick accumulation of coffee beans,
allowing the hot water to truly seep through the coffee grounds while brewing.
This design has been well received and is highly praised by many baristas.
What are ribs?
How much do you know about the ribs on the insides of drippers?
These rib designs have a major impact on the flavor of coffee each company aims to achieve.
The purpose of the ribs is to create spaces between the filter paper and the dripper, controlling the flow of hot water.
The flow of the hot water that has soaked in the coffee beans has a major influence on the flavor of the coffee.
The CAVE has two types of ribs, which makes it possible to produce two different flavors using the same coffee beans.
* Depending on the type of coffee bean and the method used to brew the coffee,
the differences can be tremendous or almost imperceptible.
If you think your coffee is too acidic, use the A side.
There is a well-established culture of enjoying the terroir of high quality coffee beans
such as single-origin beans and specialty coffee beans.
If you aren’t a fan of strongly acidic coffee beans, use the A side of the CAVE to slightly reduce the acidity of the coffee and create a more balanced flavor.
The key is to slowly brew the coffee. Gradually. Patiently. Drop by drop.
If you think your coffee is too bitter (B side)
Conversely, if you find that coffee beans have been too deeply roasted, to an almost espresso-like level,
and that the resulting coffee tastes bitter or burnt, we recommend the B side.
It has 24 ribs, alternating between long and short ribs.
Compared to the A side, it brews coffee more quickly, producing a smoother finish.
The key is not to pour too slowly, but instead to pour the water quickly into the dripper after soaking the beans.
Perfect for outdoor use, too
Rivers is a major proponent of “unplugged coffee,” enjoying coffee outdoors.
It goes without saying that the CAVE REVERSIBLE is also perfect for outdoor use.
The CAVE is made of silicone, so it can be stored within the SLEEK or the DEMITA for exceptional portability.
