OREA V3 MK2 - Available 12/9Regular price $38.00 Save $-38.00
The OREA Brewer V3 has become quite iconic - with its unique patented ring design that covers the whole bed while keeping it perfectly flat. The V3 was always loved for its consistency, fast flow rate and unique cup profile. But in true OREA style - OREA did not stop there, always searching for simple ways to improve this much-loved brewer.
OREA tested a lot of different design changes to improve performance without sacrificing what OREA love about the V3. The best improvement they found came from adding 32 small teeth around the bed of the brewer. These teeth open up 32 little pockets of air that relieve pressure all around the coffee bed and give water some tiny escape paths around the bed (at this point, the water has already gone through the coffee and extracted). The teeth allow us to keep the bed totally flat, which was very important to us - and it helps maintain the unique flavour profile of the V3 in the process.
The result of these new teeth is a more consistent drip without clogging, even when using flat papers or fine grinds. It's immediately obvious in the way it drips, but you really notice it when you brew side-by-side.
More options to explore
With the new interior design - you have a wider range of brewing options. You can push this brewer more with finer grinds, bigger and faster pours and generally play with variations in recipes a lot more. They are excited to make probably the most flexible pour-over brewer out there even more flexible.
From the outside, quite familiar
This looks and feels like a V3 - it's not drastically different. This is on purpose as OREA really loves the classic V3. On this unit, they use a very coarse texture on the exterior for scratch proofing and durability. The brewer is matte black and truly matte this time.
A new material
While switching manufacturers, OREA decided to also change the material of the V3. For this unit (and other new units like the Big Boy) OREA went for a high-impact Polypropylene that is BPA-free and FDA and EU approved for food safety. It is similar in weight and feeling as our original Trogamid material - giving a light, compliant, but durable brewer. Throw it in your bag - drop it on the floor and don't be afraid to brew on the edge of a cliff - this brewer has your back.
A sweet, well-extracted cup profile
The V3 is known for bringing out sweetness but with great clarity and quality acidity. Due to the design, it tends to produce higher extraction cups with less time and effort, but you can always grind coarser or adjust your recipes to drop tds to the level you enjoy.
