  1. It really depends on what you’re trying to do with it. I tend to use the Kalita Wave dripper (which is kind of a hybrid, but probably classed as flat-bottomed). I’ve found that it handles quite finely ground beans a bit better than a severe cone (like the V60). The difference isn’t huge, mind – and I’m happy to use either for manual pour-over coffee.

    For an automatic brewer, however, the cone-shaped filters work better – the flat-bottomed ones tend to under-extract.
    What I like about the Wave, though, is that I can brew up in a separate container (think cupping, or cafetière ), then slowly pour the brew through the filter. This lets me extract quite fully, then filter it.

  2. There no difference to the quality of coffee being Brewed in both cone or flat filters. The quality depends on various factors the primary being:
    1. Freshness of coffee: stale out of date coffee won’t give good results
    2. Grind: you must grind your beans using a burr grinder just before brewing and use the medium to fine setting.
    3. Quality of water: Use RO water or tap water provided it has no chlorine and high calcium content.
    If you want the best drip Brewer see the recommendations of the speciality coffee association of America : Bonavita BV1800SS 8-Cup with a thermal carafe.
    If you prefer artisanal brewing that try the manual pour over method using the hario V60.
