The Gedheg Dripper Apparently is Called as Cur

Previously I wrote about gedheg dripper, a coffee dripper made by bamboo webbing. The photo of this dripper was shared by several Instagram accounts like @manual_brewing. There was no information about the price or how the creator used it.

Now, I got some new information from another Instagram accounts. It seems one Instagram account uses this dripper regularly. The account, @kopiapik uploaded several photos of this dripper. It's called Cur. I don't know why the name was chosen as its dripper name. But I assume “cur” has anything to do with how Indonesians call the sound of water dripping. I mean when water is dripping from various objects, the dripping voice in Indonesia is called “cur”. Does it make sense?

KopiApik posted a photo on its account that explained the idea of this dripper. “Before the conical coffee dripper was made by Japanese in 1950s, our ancestors (Indonesian ancestors) had already made their first coffee dripper. But Java (maybe it talks about what is known as local coffee beans in Indonesia) that was forced to cultivate by Netherlands in Nusantara, apparently could not be enjoyed by indigenous people. Instead, wasting the conical design, they adopted it to cook rice. Now, we rise it again,” wrote KopiApik in its caption.

From various photos, we can see that Cur is used as a replacement for paper filter for V60. And they also used it as a replacement for v60. In one of its captions, KopiApik explained that we can use it without paper filters at all and we can use it over and over.

I'm contacting KopiApik to buy Cur. I will write another article when I get more information about Cur. Meanwhile, there are people who have uploaded videos about Cur.
