The Clover.

If you are a coffee - geek, this name will illicit feelings of joy... nervous anticipation perhaps.

The Clover is an all-steel, single cup, French-press style coffee brewer.

In Canada, it costs over 10,000 dollars.

In Vancouver, they have one at Artigiano.
I believe they have one at the Elysian Room (I will find out in a couple of days... well, tomorrow actually)

In Victoria, there is a Clover coffee brewer at Chef Sam Jones's Discovery Cafe.

Let me say this about the Clover. The Clover is the electronic scanning microscope of coffee brewers.
If there is some goodness to be had in the cup, the Clover will find it.

Have you been Clovered lately?

I have had couple of cups at Artigiano on Hornby in downtown Vancouver.

The coffee was great - better than a French Press and fast! The flavours are clear and its a good cup. My only complaint (I know its a weird one) is that the cup (I ordered the smallest one) was too big! It was a large mug of coffee...I think a smaller cup does justice to fine coffees they sell.

I was also dissappointed in the staff, as they didnt carefully stir the grounds before the extraction..there was a big 'blob' of dry grounds that ddnt get mixed in...

Yikes!

If you are going to have someone Clover for you, at least
they could give it the 10s worth of attention it
deserves.

Hmmm. Will pass this along to Vince Piccolo.

Make sure you try the Elysian Rooms CLover:

West 5th & Burrard -- near the BMW Repair depot.

Have a single origin while sitting in the window...
looking at broken BMW's cruise by.

I am sort of taking a break from espresso coffee and concentrating way more on the single origins. Some of the taste exploration, available with the Clover, is mind boggling.

So much to learn. Wish I could get to Vancouver more often.
