Why do we love it?
The Fretta Iced Coffee Brewer is Hario's answer to brewing the perfect cup of iced coffee. Hario has combined their famous V60 brewer with a decanter and plastic diffuser to assure that the coffee is quickly cooled by hitting ice immediately after the brewing process. This quick heat transition is important in conserving the flavor of the coffee. The Fretta comes with 10 size 02 paper filters. We recommend that you purchase extra filters as well. To do this select filters as an add-on from the options on the right or go to our Hario 02 filter listing. Also recommend is a pouring kettle. We offer both the Hario Buono Kettle as well as the Kalita Wave Pot Kettle in the drop-down menu on the right.
The Hario V60 Fretta is a cold coffee pour-over brewing system that provides the ideal set-up for brewing coffee over ice. For a thorough overview of the Hario Fretta, click on our "Spotlight" tab above, and find more detailed information below.
Fretta Iced Coffee Brewer Includes:
- 1 size 02 plastic V60 dripper
- 1 plastic diffuser
- 1 plastic funnel insert
- 1 600ml glass carafe (with snap-in lid)
- 10 paper 02 size filters
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.
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).
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.
As the interest in specialty coffee continues to increase, so does the interest in brewing methods that best compliment the quality and ideals of specialty coffee. Up until this point there have been limited options when it comes to pour over brewing devices that offer both a small learning curve as well as excellent results. Garnering praise for both their calculated design and ease of use, the Kalita line of pour over brewers are helping that small list of brewers grow. The Kalita Wave Dripper is being offered in both small (1-2 people) and large (1-4 people). The small size is offered in both glass and stainless steel while the large size is offered in glass, stainless steel, and ceramic. For an overview of the unique style the Kalita Wave Dripper brings to the pour over method, a feature chart that overviews the design, technique, and advantage can be found below.
$1,687.00(For a guest barista review, click here.) Anfim's Super Caimano espresso grinder, upon its initial release, was a solid addition to any high-end coffee house. It featured a 75mm flat burr set that helped to give a very consistent grind, allowing baristas to rely upon it for excellent shot-to-shot uniformity. When dialing in a coffee, the Super Caimano had 70 holes in its adjustment collar to allow for tinkering between shots. Now, however, Anfim has added an additional 20 spots for a total of 90 holes in the adjustment collar. The benefit of this? When dialing in and finding the sweet spot for any coffee being used to pull shots of espresso, a key factor the barista must take into consideration is the size of the grind particles. Yes, uniformity and consistency of those grind particles is also key, but the ability to make tiny, incremental adjustments is always helpful when striving to find the right balance of all a coffee's characteristics when pulled as espresso.
Small, lightweight, and portable, the Skerton is the ideal hand grinder for the traveling coffee enthusiast, or the home enthusiast on a limited budget. The Skerton employs adjustable conical ceramic burrs for grinding any of the wide range of grinds employed in today’s coffee market. It can easily handle anything from fine espresso to a coarse French Press setting. The Skerton’s detachable 100 gr. glass jar is perfect for collecting the grounds, and in combination with the plastic screw-on lid (included in order) can even double as a storage unit for whole beans on those long trips. After grinding is finished, cleaning the Skerton is as easy as placing the unit in the dishwasher since the entire grinder is dishwasher safe. Whether you desire a quality, handy grinder for the road or enjoy the fine art of manual coffee preparation, the Hario Skerton is the ideal candidate. For an even more portable hand grinder from Hario, check out the Mini Mill (for a more detailed comparison of the two grinders, check out this blog post: Hario Skerton vs. Mini Mill).
