The chorreador is made from a simple wooden frame and a cloth filter. It’s small, easy to move back and forth to and from the cabinet, and really simple to clean (just rinse filter with hot water).
We’ve had a few guests recently, and using the chorreador has been a fun experience. I’ll set it out on the counter and have hot water on the stovetop. Whenever they’re ready for coffee, I simply tell them to help themselves. We’ve had a few overflowing accidents and lots of laughs but eventually, each friend learned how to master the chorreador. What fun!
