yep, the coffee passes through the filter and straight down into the open 
carafe.  there is a separate screw-on lid.
i don't have any first hand experience with the clubline.  i like the 
thought and consideration that obviously went into that spout design, but i 
can't say that i have any problems with the thermal carafe regarding mixing. 
for a while at first i would swirl the carafe before pouring, but that fell 
by the wayside and i can't say that i can tell a difference.

That's good news, John. I've been swirling/tiping my carafe for about  
a year now. I think I'll stop that in the morning! One less thing to  
do is a good thing.

I have both models -- one at work and one at home.  They are both 
excellent and, for me, well worth the price.  Its simple, matter of 
fact, and makes the best drip coffee.  My clients rave about our 
homeroasted coffee brewed in a Technivorm.  I'd buy it again in a minute 
if I needed to.

right into the paper cone filter that I'm holding right under the coffee 
chute in my hand. Paper is flexible as heck and it works like a charm- I 
lose nary a grain.

TechV, block flow out of funnel until reservoir is at 8.5 cup water level.=
 
1/2 open funnel- 2 more cups. Close funnel and "walk it around" to 100% wet=
 
all the grounds. 1/2 open again until 2 cups water level in reservoir.
About now, the drip stream is losing opacity so I close the funnel and 
switch off the TechV. Just let it extract for about 20 seconds. Then turn o=
n 
TechV and open the funnel 1/2- run to completion. When the funnel starts 
dripping individual droplets, I close it and pour the carafe into a 
pre-heated pump pot. 9.75 cups in a 1.9L container is just a little over 
half full. I could do it again and have a Captain Morgan stein left over.=
 
It's been 13 years... but this Ethiopian Sidamo is Huge! Deep, Dark and 
Terrific! And it's gaining by leaps and bounds as it cools in the cup. 
Aftertaste is just Unbelieveable! I really like this...
Hi- my name is Ray, and I'm a coffee-holic. I might not quit any time soon.=
 
Oh, how Sweet It Is! And this small roast (1 Lb) is just starting a long,=
 
slow surge in flavor. As the tang subsides, it's getting sweeter.
Egad- Sweet Marias Rules-
Ethiopian Sidamo Rules-
TechniVorm Rules-
Say Goodnight, Ray.
The Hell with that!
