Though to be honest the outlook surprises me, prolly gotta do with the coating for what I've seen online was the actual wood texture that attracted me. Then again from the photo you have attached here is the one I got. The outcome is what matters and it's been doing a great job for my brews! Loved it how it really holds up to the heat, and gave me quite a fair experience. I honestly loved it, ive been using it almost everyday now in between my favourite mountain torch, they're both unique in their ways 💜
I have to say out of the many pour over cones I own this one is my favorite. This is the first cone that I own that is made out of wood and the urushi finish is excellent. Since it is made out of wood it is light and it does not absorb heat away from the slurry. I have my grind dialed in and using 4:3 method I have already enjoyed some great cups of coffee.
