I posted on Twitter that I was going to try my hand at roasting again over the long weekend but focused on building my pour over station instead. It wasn't hard, but did end up costing me a little more than anticipated. Here is what it took to make it:
- 2 ceramic pour over brewers: $6.99/each at World Market (http://www.worldmarket.com/product/red-euro-coffee-dripper.do?&refType=&from=Search)
- (1) 1/2in x 6in x 4 ft piece of wood sturdy wood (probably only need 2 ft, but the extra gives you room for error): About $5
- Wood stain and sand paper to your taste
- 3/8in Galvanized pipe: About $35
- 2 - end caps (feet)
- 3 - 4in pipes (legs and neck)
- 1 - 3 in pipe (neck)
- 1 - T - coupler (center of base)
- 4 - 90º couplers (legs and neck)
- 1 - 12 in pipe (main staff)
- 2 - 6in pipes (from T to legs)
- 1 - 4 in flange (for securing the board)
- (4) 1-1/4 in bolts with nuts: About $4
- 2-1/2 in hole bit
- 1/4 in drill bit
Two major tips for putting this together:
1) Do not tighten the pipes until you are ready to finish. They do not come apart easily.
2) Be careful with your measuring.
Other than that, it is pretty self explanatory. I made this just by looking at a picture.
Post some pictures in the comments of brewers you have made!
