Kalita Wave Dripper #185


The Kalita Wave Dripper features a flat bottom with its patented wave filter to create an even and smooth coffee extraction. This stainless steel coffee brewer is just as beautiful as its glass counterpart without the underlying stress of shattering. Our baristas prefer this brewer because it’s able to provide a fuller flavor and more balanced extraction when it comes to the temperamental pourover technique.


PRO TIP: Utilize a gooseneck kettle for optimal water control to help maintain the shape of the wave filter.

I am very satisfied with this purchase

Like it better than Hario V60!

Beautiful, beautifully made, and allows for a very even and thorough extraction that is easy to modulate with a kettle. Metal not plastic, with 3 channels at the bottom leading to three drip holes. The max flow rate will be less than a Hario, but from what I can tell not enough to lengthen the extraction more than 3-4 minutes. I need to nail this time down a little better because I’ve been doing slightly longer and different bloom phases, but it’s not terribly different at the same grind setting. Now it’s time for me to back-to-back with the Hario and the Kalita. I love both but I’m mostly using the Kalita and a French Press right now if that says anything. Add one to your brew lab and try this versus your other brew methods. You won’t be disappointed! I think it’s massively under the radar.

Wonderful experience

I love the email communication while my order was being packed and shipped. Considering it came across the country I got it fairly quick. It was packaged well. Great customer service. I would definitely order again.
