Join our Ayaka as she shares her tips and tricks on picking the right kettle for you. 

In today's discussion, we will be looking at 3 different kettles. 

Let's explore each kettle and its features!

HARIO Mini Drip Kettle KASUYA Model

Designed by HARIO in collaboration with the 2016 World Brewers Cup winner Tetsu Kasuya. 

Why do we recommend this kettle?

Because it's light, affordable, and easy to use

This kettle is great for people who:
  1. Often brew single-serve coffee.
  2. Prefer boiling water in a separate larger kettle.

It doesn't have a lid, so allows you to easily pour from another kettle. The narrow spout also provides a lot of control over your pour. It is especially great for coffee brewing beginners.

HARIO V60 Buono Kettle Stainless Steel

This HARIO kettle is a well-loved iconic kettle in the coffee community.

Why do we recommend this kettle? 

  • Compatible with a variety of heat sources (e.g: induction stove, gas stove, etc.)
  • The stainless steel material is light and handy, great for outdoor use. 
  • The design is simple yet iconic.


The kettle is smooth to the touch, with a minimalistic and stylish design. A lot of people fell in love with this kettle due to its design, but this kettle is so much more than its appearance.

It might have the highest price point out of the three, but it will be there for your brewing needs for a long time. 

Why do we recommend this kettle? 

  • The lid can be opened with one hand.
    This feature allows you to fill up this kettle with hot water with only one hand, without fussing with any separate lid risking some heat escaping during the transfer. 
  • The spout provides a lot of control over your pour
  • Suitable to use in professional settings (e.g: in a cafe, etc.)

There are quite a lot of things to consider when choosing a kettle. 

  • When will it be used mainly?
  • How many cups do you want to make? 
  • What heat source will you be using?

While considering these points, I hope you will find the best fit for you. 

If you visit Kurasu Ebisugawa cafe you will be able to see and actually try these kettles out to find the perfect one for you. 

Happy brewing!
