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.

Brew Method: Pour Over

Design

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.

Technique

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..

Advantage

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.

Kalita

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.

Simple and effective!

The Wave Style set is my first foray into the world of pour-over brewing at home. This set was recommended for me because it is supposed to be very forgiving for newbs. It has been very easy to use and the results have been amazing. The first batch I brewed was easily the best cup of coffee I have made, and it has gotten even better from there. If you are ocd or just like to fine tune things this is the perfect brewing style for you.

I love it. Retiring my other brewing gear.

Finally. I've found the ultimate manual pour over / drip brewer. I have an Aeropress, Kone Brewing System, and automatic drip brewer. The Kalita Wave Style Set is amazing. Why? -It looks gorgeous on the counter -Thick filters product a clarified cup -Fast brewing due to the 'wave' of the filter -Flat bottom filter makes for a nice 'bed' to avoid over-extraction -Simple and no fuss set up and cleaning -Best feature: CONSISTENCY I'd highly recommend this to anyone seeking a consistent cup of great brew.

New Favorite Way to Brew

I've been using the Kalita Wave daily for over a month now and I can say it is now my new favorite way to brew coffee. When I first received the Style Set, I was immediately impressed by the looks. It is a slim and sexy piece of glass. The plastic cover on the neck is removable to allow for cleaning in case some liquid drips into it. The filter holder and carafe are easy to handle and clean. It took some getting used to when initially attempting to brew with this device. After reading and watching a few videos, I realized the most important thing is to use pulse pouring instead of a constant flow of water. This dripper brews very quickly even though the holes seem very small. I settled on a grind of 12 on my Baratza Virtuoso with a dose of 66g/L. Once I figured out the pulse pouring, the Kalita was brewing excellent coffee with a fuller body than that of a Chemex or V60. The cup is still a clear as they come with all the tasting notes present. The best thing about the Kalita, as many other reviewers have noted, is the consistency. As soon as I figured out the technique, my cups have been perfect every morning. With other pour-overs your at the mercy of how well you're able to pour water that morning. With the Kalita, the accuracy doesn't seem to matter as much. The Kalita is my go-to for my morning brew of 24oz, which I think is the perfect amount for the Style Set. It works very well with single cup brewing as well, although I prefer to play with the V60 for that. Anything larger than 32oz and I'll have to move over to the Chemex. I think this is the only pour-over device anyone could need if you're just starting out, and I would definitely recommend it to beginners as it is easy to make a great cup consistently. One more thing to take into consideration when buying is filters. As of now, it's difficult to find the wave filters, so try and stock up at the time of purchase.
