The question often arises, "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.

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.

Kalita is a Japanese based company that specializes in producing coffee brewing equipment. Most notably they are the creators of the Kalita Wave Dripper and Kalita Wave Kettle. The Kalita Wave Dripper brings an innovative design to the pour over process with its wave filter and flat-bottom geometry. The wave filter helps temperature stability by keeping the water away from the brewer material and using air as an insulator. The flat bottom geometry helps provide an even extraction.

Beauty and Functionality

Highly recommended: while it isn't essential to use a pouring kettle to make excellent "pour-over" coffee, it makes it infinitely easier to reproducibly prepare your brew. With the Kalita Wave Kettle you will get both a consistent and gentle stream of water, with pleasing aesthetics. Transfer of just off-the-boil water to the kettle, cools it down to the temperature range I like for optimum brewing(195-200 degrees),while the wooden handle stays cool to the touch. The kettle has nice heft when it is empty, but does not feel too heavy when filled with hot water, making it easy to control the water flow,  from a steady but soft stream, all the way down to a trickle. With the Kalita kettle, a Skerton grinder and V60, you can produce the filter coffee of your dreams.

Kalita Wave Kettle Review

The kettle's build quality was great. My issue with it was ergonomics. The angled handle did not feel right to me so I decided to exchange it.
