    Cut out of V60

    Design

    The Fretta's unique design combines a 02 size dripper cone similar to the Hario V60 02 Dripper with a 600ml glass carafe. Curved ridges on the inside of the cone allow for coffe to extract out of the sides of the dripper as well as the bottom. The plastic diffuser allows for quicker cooling and a more balanced flow of coffee over the ice, resulting in less melting.

    Technique

    If you are desiring a yield of 600 mL (~20 oz; the size of the decanter) we recommend using half of that volume in ice (300mL [which weighs 300g]) with half the volume of water (300mL [also 300g]). In order to preserve the strength of the brew, use the same ratio of coffee for a 600 mL yield (38 grams or ~6 tbsp.) Rinse the filter out with hot water. We then recommend pouring just enough water to wet the coffee ground and letting it sit for 30-45 seconds (or until the coffee bloom deflates). At this point begin pouring slowly in concentric circles until the desired water volume is reached (don't pour too close to the edge).

    Advantage

    The paper filters produce a clean, flavorful, sediment-free cup and the plastic diffuser ensures that the coffee is cooled quickly by falling directly onto the ice. This is also a quicker way to brew cold coffee than other cold brew methods.

    Hario

    Originally known primarily as a company that produces glass products, Hario (also known as Hario Glass) has been working to produce high quality coffee and tea products since 1921. Over the past few years, Hario has become known as the coffee industry leader in pour over brewing equipment. Hario has helped bring about a coffee renaissance in the U.S. by creating ingeniously designed coffee brewing and grinding products that are being used by cafes and home coffee connoisseurs alike for by-the-cup coffee brewing. The design and methods behind Hario's brewing devices have helped to insure that specialty coffee is being brewed with the craft that it deserves.

    Is this made of borosilicate glass? Could it also be used for hot coffee using pour-over method (metal filter) or would the shock shatter the glass? Is this made in Japan; if so, how does the nuclear radiation affect the glass, plastic, packaging, etc?

    Asked by: Akemi
    Hi, Akemi. The Hario Fretta glass is extremely high quality, but it is not Borosilicate. This brewer could absolutely be used for hot drinks as well. As far as radiation goes, we doubt you have anything to worry about. US customs does a pretty good job of making sure things are safe, but if you develop any super powers let us know!
