Bodum Bistro Pour Over Coffee Machine - Is It the Pour Over Coffee Making Method?

There's much buzz taking place now about the Bodum Bistro pour over coffee machine, which has attractive, modern, sleek design and has some of the known Pour Over coffee brewing advantages. It has a conical shaped top, a special mechanism heating the water close to boiling temp and then spraying with shower-head like design the hot water over the grounds. It features a stainless steel titanium-plated filter instead of paper filters, and it brews into an insulated thermos.

One thing I didn't see described on this so-called pour over coffee maker is how long it takes to brew with it. Many coffee makers don't make very hot coffee, so brewing close to boil point surely is a plus. Brewing into a thermos is another positive as it keeps the coffee hot longer instead of letting heat on a heating element. But one of the recommendations in the manual drip pourover method is to brew slowly for some minutes and in a circular motion. I didn't see anything like this described for the Bodum Bistro pour over coffee maker. So, is it really the known pour-over method, or it's just called pour-over coffeemaker by the manufacturer?
