Kalita Wave Style Set
The Kalita Wave Dripper is the newest manual pour over brewing device to hit the North American soil. The dripper has been praised for its calculated design, dashing good looks, and knack for producing a tasty cup of coffee. The Kalita Wave Style Set combines the large size Wave Glass Dripper and glass server to make the brewing process simple and elegant. The server perfectly compliments the glass brewer and allows one to clearly view the entire brewing process. For an overview of the unique design the Kalita Wave brings to the pour over method, check out our feature chart below.
The Kalita Wave implements a chopped-cone shape with a flat bottom. At the bottom of the wave drippers there are three triangulated holes that are connected by a raised edge that helps keep the filter from suctioning flush against the bottom. The Wave filters create a wedge against the edge of the dripper helping promote temperature stability.
Rinse the filter out with hot water, pouring direcly in the middle until the water reaches near the top of the filter and then allowing it to drain out. Then we 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 water volume is near the top (don't pour too close to the filter).Once the dripper is full let it drain out for 10-20 seconds. At this point continual the fill and drain process until you have reached the water volume desired..
The design of the Kalita Wave leaves a lot more margin for error than other pour over brewers as the flat-bottom does not necessitate as careful a pouring technique. As with other pour over brewing methods the Kalita is quick (2-4 minutes) and easy to clean up.

One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.
$449.00The Baratza Vario looks much like Baratza's other offerings (i.e., the Encore, Virtuoso, and Preciso) in regard to silhouette, footprint, and general design. Those who've used them extensively, however, know that there's far more than mere nomenclature that separates the Vario from its brethren. Practically speaking, it has shown to give a consistently uniform and desirable grind for the full grind spectrum, all the way from espresso to press pot, something no other non-commercial grinder currently out on the market can boast. It is a highly efficient machine, wasting very little in the way of coffee grounds, but it shines in its ability to produce excellent espresso, shot after shot after shot, a feature aided by the three timed dosing presets it allows the user to store and recall at the push of a button.
