What's a Negotiator?

The Negotiator is essentially a model of the inside geometry of our brewers. You can use these tools to fit different types of filters inside the brewer, perfectly respecting the inner geometry. It helps you experience a different way to brew with the OREA Brewers using a lower bypass filter fit to reach higher extractions and explore a different brew method within the same brewing system. This device works together with flat circular papers, like the OREA flat paper Type "G" & Type "C", or Sibarist FAST flat filter (OREA special edition).

3D printed

This device is 3D printed from PLA. PLA is a type of polyester made from fermented plant starch from corn, cassava, maize, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp. PLA is safe for food contact applications and is printed on printers that only print this material. We use a specific PLA that is made from non-GMO crops. 3D printed items have layer lines and can present imperfections. 

A modular Negotiator for a modular Brewer - made for the OREA Brewer V4

This negotiator is designed to work with the OREA V4 Brewers. It uses a modular design to help you take advantage of the different brewers in the V4 system, but minimising the amount of material we use and the amount of money you have to spend. The V4 Negotiator consists of two main parts:

The FLAT body (works with all 3 flat bottoms in the V4) 

The APEX tips (works with the conical bottom in the V4) - each Negotiator comes with two

The APEX tips screw into the body to transform the Negotiator into a semi-conical shape for a different brew profile in the V4 Brewer with the APEX bottom. 

Two Apex Tips included with each negotiator

When we started testing the V4 conical brewer, we realised that there is a lot of room to innovate in the conical space. Manipulating the arc of the apex can drastically change the profile in the cup. We ship the negotiators with a blunt apex and a sharper one - to let you experience different styles of conical brewing. Generally, as you make the shape more "pointy", you get sharper acidity and less sweetness. The different APEX tips let you experience a world between traditional conical and flat bottoms - it's really a new space to play within. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

In the package:

Negotiator funnel
Handle / flat bottom attachment 
2 x APEX Tips (the APEX tips are different for the Narrow compared to the Wide)

APEX brewing 

A new style of brewing pour-over, exploring the space between conical and flat bottoms. Within the V4 system, this naturally means with minimised bypass and still fast extraction speeds. It's a world where we are the first to play in and we can't wait to see what you'll do with it. 

Will you release more APEX tips?

We are constantly testing new shapes to help manipulate the way coffee and water interact while brewing. We decided to make the tips small and attachable as part of a system so that it is affordable to adopt a new APEX tip if we make one. 

Why do people love the Negotiator?

By "negotiating" the paper to fit perfectly in the brewer we ensure that more water is able to travel directly downwards through the coffee bed and not around it. This leads to more consistency and better extractions. It's not just a matter of higher extractions, rather higher quality extractions. By using this method, you also open up the bed more, using more space and opening up more space in the brewer compared to the wave filters. All of this contributes to a unique profile that people love. 

Brew with minimized bypass

This is not a "zero bypass" solution, rather a way to minimise bypass and ensure more consistency. We prefer this approach as you can still brew quickly but reach higher extractions without much effort and time. 

Compatible papers

For the V4, we recommend to stick to the flat papers we sell, 

the OREA flat paper Type "G" & Type "C", or Sibarist FAST flat filter (OREA special edition).
