V60 is probably the most famous pour over. It was first made by Hario Glass in Tokyo, Japan. Its 60º angle cone shape allows the water to flow to the center, as its spiral ribs allow air to escape. V60 pour over makes a full and rich kind of coffee.
Although the name says ‘French’ press, the final design was actually made by two Italian men, Attilio Calimani and Giulio Moneta in 1929. They based the design to a brewer patented in 1852 by two French men, Mayer and Delforge. French press makes a dense and heavy kind of coffee.
Chemex was invented by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD in 1941, and since then, it was never redesigned -- an hourglass-shaped vessel made of heat-resistant glass, and a polished wood collar and leather tie. A coffee made with Chemex is similar to a drip coffee, rich and clean.
AeroPress is a coffee brewing system that mainly consists of a plunger, a chamber, and a filter cap. It was invented in 2005 by Alan Adler, Aerobie’s president.

The Philippines is one of the few countries that produces the four species of coffee: Arabica, Liberica (Barako), Excelsa and Robusta. Climatic and soil conditions in the Philippines - from the lowland to mountain regions - make the country suitable for all four species. At Commune, we take pride in using only high quality beans, sourced directly from farmers, in various coffee-growing areas in the country like Benguet, Sagada, South Cotobato, Kapatagan and Bukidnon.
