Found 7th Jan 2016
There's loads of these in stores as part of the great Christmas clearout. They're currently £8 on the Sainsburys website. Looks like a nice set, I've been wanting to get a filter cone for a while so couldn't resist for £2.40. Mug is metal, cone is china.

bought one at lunchtime....bargain for a decent coffee at work
They call them coffee drippers hehe. Whatever you do folks don't just bung in the water all at once. Gradually add, use white not brown filters, and whatever you do peeps don't get a generic coffee brand coffee grinds.They taste awful, try and find some artisan coffee. Perhaps from Pact, Clifton Coffee house or any other proper coffee importer and roaster.

This stuff is amazing

They are still £8 online. I can't see much point linking to it.
I bought one about this price before Xmas. Expected there to be a filter and some coffee inside, but just the tin mug and dripper. The mug is good and big.

​Some coffee and some filters (which you cannot use it without) would indeed have been a nice addition.

Personally, every time I hear someone mention PACT, I just have to say how you've fallen for their marketing!

£7 - £9 a bag for their coffee is about twice what it's worth. You can get much better coffees from your local supermarket for a lot less In Italian Cafes (where I've had some of the best coffees I've ever tasted, do you think they brew hand roasted random coffees? No - the majority of them brew brands like Lavazza, since they're consistent, and very nice. I'm not talking without experience either - I've tried Pact, and yes, whilst you can tell the coffee was relatively fresh, it was very unevenly roasted, and it quite frankly, didn't taste very nice.

For example, in Asda, you can buy 2 bags of Lavazza Caffe Espresso or Qualita Rossa for £6. Both are very nice coffees. Crema E Gusto is regularly available between £3.25-£3.75 a bag.

You can also get some off-brand beauties at supermarkets. My current personal favourite is from Waitrose - it's their own brand Monsooned Malaba beans. They're £3.29 a bag (so half the price of Pact) and are utterly delightful, and have a unique flavour that I find most enjoyable.

If you really don't want supermarket beans, find a local roaster, or use someone like Garraways who do very good coffee, not these new(ish) overpriced delivery services.

As for white vs brown, it depends how they bleach (some use chlorine!). There isn't any difference in the taste they produce purely down to their colour (like everything though, you can buy good quality and bad quality ones). If you do buy unbleached filters, you just need to make sure you wet them before brewing.
