Yukiwa is not a well known brand outside of Japan, but ask any established coffee barista here and they will all reply with confidence the trusted brand of Yukiwa.
Established in 1950 as a small kitchen ware brand in Tsubame city Japan, Yukiwa has continued to produce quality products adhering to its company philosophy of using small production lines and employing local artisans.
The K-5 kettle is no exception with its minimalistic designed body tailored specifically for pour over coffee. The construction is durable, the spout is designed to control and time your pour. We're proud to feature the kettle with a custom matt black color exclusive to Kurasu.
As the matt black is painted over the kettle, we do not recommend using this under direct heat as it will damage the paint. Rather boil water with a normal or electric kettle and pour hot water in the Yukiwa Drip pot for great handle and control for your perfect pour over coffee.
