Speaking of Clever (my version's a Hario from Whole Foods), why does pour-over drip made that way taste SOOO much better than made from a single-cup Melitta, all other things being equal: pour technique, beans, freshness, grind, water, filters (whether I use Hario, Melitta or generic #2)? Is it the bigger open hole at the bottom, the slanted striations, or rationalization (i.e., reinforcing and justifying my decision to buy the thing)?
