This pour over coffee pot is truly a work of art. I could find no seams, the entire pot and handle are as smooth as...well, glass. The glass is thick, handle: secure, spout: seamless for a smooth pour. The re-usable mesh filter is just as finely finished with no raw edges to unravel or collect residues. Highly recommend this pot if you are like me and enjoy your coffee fresh. And only $20 for this beauty? A steal!
