The questions arises often, "What is the most important piece of coffee equipment to invest in?" Our first response is always the same, "A good grinder." If you're interested in using a pour over brewing method our second response is just as sure: "A good kettle." Flow control and flow rate play a vital role in the ability to properly brew a cup of manually brewed coffee. Too high of a flow rate can rush the brew and create unneeded turbulence against the grounds which can lead to overextration. Too little flow control can lead to an uneven brew bed resulting in irregular extraction. Alongside our Hario Buono Kettle, we're happy to introduce a second kettle option: The Kalita Wave Pot Kettle.
Kalita Wave Pot Kettle
The Kalita Wave Kettle is designed with precision pouring in mind. The dapper look of the kettle, comprised of a high finish stainless steel and wooden handle, can distract from it's brilliant design. One look at the end of the spout shows the care and detail put into a Kettle crafted for pour over brewing. In comparison to the Hario Buono Kettle, the Kalita Wave Pot Kettle raises the bar on temperature stability and pour control. While the Wave Pot Kettle contains less volume than the Buono (1 L in comparison to the Buono’s 1.6L), it tops the Buono in weight (460g to the Buono’s 420g). This difference in weight can be partially contributed to a thicker stainless which should aid in temperature stability. The Wave Kettle also features a beautiful pour spout which produces a slow flow rate and incredible amount of control.

$53.00Hario's stainless steel water kettle, the V60 Buono, has been spotted popping up in coffee houses and the kitchens of baristas for some time now. A detailed search on the web will reveal, for the moment at least, that the Buono seems to be widely accepted as the most useful pouring kettle available. What makes this kettle so popular amongst pour-over enthusiasts? Several reasons stand out.
First, the thin pouring spout enables greater pouring precision as well as a slower, more consistent and controlled rate of pour, both of which are very helpful in achieving a precise, prolonged extraction.
Second, the stainless steel construction and large 1 liter capacity contribute toward keeping up the brew temperature for the duration of the entire brew cycle.
Third, the ergonomics involved in the design of the kettle help to make using it much easier. This may not seem like much, but if you're brewing large batches of coffee and pouring for three or more minutes per batch, doing several batches of coffee will quickly become a chore if your kettle doesn't cooperate with you.
Combine all of these facets with the fact that the Buono is manufactured by Hario, a very popular name in the coffee-brewing community, and the kettle's popularity is easily understood. For best results, combine the Buono with a V60 Dripper or Chemex to get a truly exceptional cup of coffee.
