With capacity for 275ml (9.3oz), this glass is perfect for brewing directly into, or pairing with a carafe for small sips.
Made for Coffee
Orea leans in with an intentionally designed single wall glass for specialty coffee. The neck provides a comfortable and cool place to grab the glass, even when the body has warm coffee in it. This contact point allows us to enjoy a single wall glass for the most beautiful of coffees. Touch and sight are essential parts of the sensory experience and this glass helps us connect with both. This is also a fantastic glass for ice beverages (flash brew, cold brew, etc).
For Coffee and More
You can use these beautiful glasses for other beverages like wine and beer. The shape enhances aromatics and spreads liquid evenly across the palate, helping you notice more flavor nuances in your beverage.
Sense Glass is handcrafted from lab-grade Borosilicate glass, and is built for durability.
THE BIG BOYRegular price $35.00 Save $-35.00
The Big Boy is a brand new brewer from OREA that brings a lot of what people love in the OREA's smaller brewers to much bigger volumes of coffee.
The Big Boy is made for big brews, with an optimal dose range of 40g-60g of coffee for 600ml to 1 litre. You can go as low as 32g or as high as 80g with the right recipe, but OREA recommends to keep pours big (200ml+ per pour) for optimal performance. So if you brew lower quantities, grind finer and use bigger pours. The brewers come with guides in the box for recipes for two, three, or more people.
The Big Boy has a unique bottom design that uses a series of tall teeth/ridges to hold the paper up perfectly straight and always allow for airflow under the bed. The brewer itself will not clog (stop dripping due to suction/etc) - but if you grind too fine or if your grinder is not very good in general, the paper filter itself may clog. Some coffees will naturally drain slower than others as they provide different resistance to water, based on processing method, roast style, etc. However - the device itself will not get in the way, providing a huge 8cm opening at the bottom through the use of the ridges. In addition, there is a big exit hole in the middle that will always keep the coffee flowing.
This is definitely their most brutal design. It's big, toothy, aggressive - a bit of a departure from their normal design language. But we love it - because the form really follows the function here. This brutal toothy design is also super-optimised and contributes to the great performance under big volumes. It also leads to its consistency. What you will notice is that while the brewer is big and brutal, it drips gentle drops - it is really beautiful to see. We hope you will love it!
With the right recipes and for most coffees, you can brew 600ml to 1 litre in about 3-4 minutes. You can push this if you use the Negotiator system along with a fast paper like the Sibarist FAST. You can also push it by manipulating grind size and pouring volume - it really depends what you are looking for. This brewer is - like all of the other OREA brewers - very flexible. But like all of them, you can also keep it simple, use the OREA wave filters and the simple recipes OREA has included in the box.
In specialty coffee, some people are a bit too snobby. There's too much nonsense around the idea that brewing bigger size brews can't taste great. Part of this is because the devices they have now aren't so good at it - creating a myth that only brewing 12g can yield tasty coffee in the cup. OREA approached this project with a totally open mind - designing a big brewer for big brews rather than trying to adapt an existing one for more volume.
Brew bigger batches with increased clarity and sweetness. Batch is known for tasting batchy - it's kind of its own thing. What OREA wanted was to scale up the taste profile of the V3 and they think they managed to get as close as one can get. OREA wants the option to brew for more people, quicker - but they don't want the stewed batchy taste. Because OREA recreates a lot of the dynamics from the smaller brewers in the bigger, wide bed, you can expect similar results in the cup. Obviously when you brew bigger quantities you can't be as precise in your pouring, agitation, etc - so it's never going to be perfectly equivalent. This is the closest you'll get to that perfect one cup brew but in higher volumes.
For those that enjoy more paper options, the Big Boy is compatible with all of OREA's Large/185 flat papers when using the Big Boy Negotiator tool. This is a simple way to insert a FAST Sibarist paper, the new Type C - Clarity paper, or the classic Type G flat paper. Experiment with faster brew times, finer grinds and different cup profiles while creating more space in the brewer with a super-precise tight fit of the paper to the brewer walls. Due to the design of the brewer, you will always have fast flowing brews even when using this method.
If you brew for yourself and your partner, or flatmates, family or colleagues - this is a great option for you. If you run a cafe and want to offer better-quality batch brew or to brew multiple filter brews at once with great results - this is a great option for you. If you're brewing at events - this is a great option for you. If you just like to brew one time per day and take the coffee with you in a flask - this is a great option for you. This brewer is for anyone that wants to make a tasty bigger batch, with low effort and consistency.
THE BIG BOY Wave FilterRegular price $16.00 Save $-16.00
OREA tested a lot of "batch brewer" papers and did not find any that they quite liked. Usually they are very thin and slow - forcing you to grind super coarse to have any reasonable performance. At the same time, we were in the process of developing their own wave-shaped paper for the OREA Brewer V3 with some fantastic results. OREA decided to scale up this paper and make it available for the Big Boy too - which is great news for all.
Many people have asked OREA for their own wave-shaped paper filter since they got started, but truthfully, it was always hard to find something better than what OREA could find on the market. As such, OREA kept searching rather than releasing something sub-standard. A two year search has yielded a great result as they finally were able to finally bring the best paper option for this shape of filter - we hope you will love it.
The paper construction is quite thick but also porous, which helps improve performance compared to other basket batch filters. The size is quite unique to the Big Boy brewer, with its 8cm flat bottom.
In the cup, you will have superior clarity but no papery taste - which was a very important factor. A high quality paper stock from Japan provides the basis for the superior results of this paper compared to other options on the market.
OREA knows they have a lot of filter options for their brewers, including the flat papers and Negotiator system - but OREA wants to provide plug and play simple options too. The wave paper for the Big Boy is the simplest filter method allowing you to just grab one, throw it in, and start brewing. If you want to expand and test many paper styles - for faster or higher extraction brews, we've got your back too with the Negotiator system. If you just want something simple, then this wave paper is for you.
This paper is fast, but not the fastest option we have for this brewer. If you want to brew quicker and grind finer, we recommend using the Negotiator and the Sibarist FAST Flat papers.
