The pitcher helps create convection as you make coffee
In a non-scientific way, it is: When you pour hot water into the coffee while brewing. Hot water will flow down the tank and give off hot steam. This heat will escape through the nose of the Server tank. Water will make it easier to extract the coffee.
If you are simply making coffee by placing the funnel on a cup. The heat will not be able to escape. The heat and CO2 will “stick” to the coffee in the pot and cause a burning smell. In addition, due to convection, it will be difficult for the water to go down and be stagnant, leading to slower flow. Since then, coffee has had a bitter, harsh taste due to over-extraction.
The pot allows you to observe the coffee while brewing
