I just starting to dive into the world of pour-over brewing. Any recommendation?

I'm looking for something that strikes a balance between simplicity and delivering great taste. Any suggestions for pour-over coffee makers, grinders, and any essential accessories would be fantastic!

I'm not a pour over 'expert' as I'm more a spro bro, but i can say without hesitation , If you are starting out, you will get your best results spending your money on a quality grinder and make your pour overs manually. Good mechanical pour over machines that are on par with a well made manual pour over are relatively pricey.

I don't know what your budget even is but the best hand grinder you can find (read/watch as many reviews as you can) may be good enough. Like 1zpresso JP6, ZP6 or maybe even K-Ultra.

As soon as you jump to an electric grinder your budget will need to be multiplied. Maybe a Lagom mini or fellow opus might be a good starting point but there are so many options. These are filter focused grinders so should you later want to make espresso they may not be you best choice

Welcome to the coffee world! I would say if you just started (like me) a machine that does it all for you might be easier (at least it is for me)
I also want a brand that will take care of the beans for me. I want to learn more about coffee beans but really don't know where to start.

Any good brands rec??? I am also opened to ideas.

I was looking at Fellow the other day......their design is cool! But I am not sure if I know how to use it...

Would love a machine that it probably does all the work for me (but not a K-cup lol
