Just when it was getting crowded in the manual brewing scene - when we knew we didn’t need another device to brew better coffee - one dripper stepped out and clearly distinguished itself from the rest. The December Dripper is an innovative, thoughtfully designed brewing tool that offers more versatility and flavor possibilities than any dripper before it.
It’s a gilded age for flat-bottom coffee drippers, and in this comparison guide, guest reviewer Michael Butterworth walks you through four of today's top contenders: the Kalita Wave, notNeutral Gino, Blue Bottle Dripper, and December Dripper.
Pour in style with Kalita's Thin Spout Kettle. Sleek design coupled with excellent the control makes the Kalita Thin Spout a piece of equipment which is not only pleasant to look at, but functional as well.
The Kalita Wave dripper is the newest manual pour over brewer in the universe – and it's worlds apart from the rest. With wavy paper filters, a flat-bottom brewing chamber, and complementary accessories, Kalita's coffee-making system both offers a unique experience and produces a distinct cup.
When it comes to manual brewing, few things are as important as a good pouring kettle. The Kalita Wave Pot Pouring Kettle is just that, with its 1,000 mL capacity that’s perfect for single or multiple cup brewing, and its excellent flow control capabilities that help eliminate over or irregular extraction. Add in its beautifully paired wooden handle and stainless steel body, and the Wave Pot Pouring Kettle quickly becomes a stand out whether it’s resting on the shelf or right in the action.
An essential accessory for many manual brewing methods, pour over kettles can make quite the difference in the cup, not to mention user experience. At Prima, we've cultivated an offering of top-notch kettles for the professional and novice alike, from simple stove-top models to precision variable temperature units. In this video, Steve shares on the benefits and drawbacks of each gooseneck kettle, so you can find the perfect fit for your brew bar.
Sharp and sleek, the Kalita Wave Style Set will make you feel that much more fancy while brewing.
The Kalita Wave’s unique design sets it apart from other drippers, and make it a popular go-to for a whole range of coffee fans. With its signature chopped-cone shape and flat bottom, the Wave requires a less exact pouring technique than other pour over brewers, without the threat of poor extraction. It’s also quick, with a 2-4 minute brew time and relatively effortless clean up, so you can go from craving, to cup-in-hand before you know it.
What's the Wave all about? Is it the new V60? How does it even work? We're so glad you asked. In this film, Chris demonstrates how to make a proper cup of coffee with the ubiquitous Kalita Wave dripper.
