Made in Japan
The Takahiro brand was originally known in Japan as a respected manufacturer of professional kitchen equipment. The Takahiro kettle has now become a popular model with professional Japanese baristas and passionate enthusiasts of the home-based, pour over filter coffee movement.
Take your coffee drinking experience to a higher level with a classic Japanese Kono coffee dripper set.
Designed by the second president of the Kono Coffee Syphon Company after years in development, the distinctive conical shape of the design ensures that water is spread evenly throughout the filter and drips through at a steady speed. The grooves in the lower half of the cone give a snugger fit for the filter, resulting in reduced sediment, improved airflow and ultimately a richer, fuller flavored coffee. With a little patience and practice you’ll quickly master the skills required to fill your kitchen with the rich, comforting aroma of filter-dripped coffee. The Kono brand is favoured by households and professional barista’s throughout Japan. Included in the set is a sample of the custom designed filter paper which recreates the shape of the cone dripper, allowing the coffee to drip through a single central point. Used in combination with the dripper, the resulting coffee is nothing short of perfection!
The glass coffee pot makes two cups of coffee and the set includes a measuring spoon and filter paper, perfect for those starting out with filtered coffee.
There’s a reason this beautiful kettle has become a classic. It looks fantastic and allows for absolute control when pouring. I make some of my best tasting pour overs using this kettle. And the internal surfaces are beautifully finished with no seams or cracks; allowing the kettle to dry completely in a short period of time. This prevents rusting and bacteria. Well worth the cost.
The design of this kettle is just elegant and delicate. Arrived soon after order placed. Works great for pour over coffee at home!
Extraordinarily smooth and controlled pouring experience, just makes morning slow coffee that much better.
It's so simple but elegant.
Compared to the Tsukiusagi enamel pot it provides an even more smooth pour, and really the 0.5L holds about as much water as the Tsukiusagi 0.7L (due to the shape it tends to boil over).
On the other hand, the Takahiro lid falls off easier than the Tsukiusagi lid does but this is only if you really really tip the pot forward.
Since the Takahiro is made with metal, the handle becomes much hotter to the touch, but the pot is much more resistant to damage.
I honestly can't choose between the two, so I'm glad that I have both now :)
Since each is handmade, I wasn't too surprised when mine came with a very slightly deviated handle, in fact it only made the kettle that much more special for me.
Arrived quickly and reliably via DHL.
This little kettle arrived in a very timely matter and upon opening the box I was of course not surprised because all of my purchases from Kurasu have been exceptional . Today, I made the perfect cup of coffee and the spout makes all the difference with approah and pouing. The kettle is high quality stainless and a very elegant addition. I love it, need I say more.
Good quality, a must-see.
Mauricio Rosales's coffee is an amazing single estate.
It's a perfect coffee for after lunch or breakfast.
Lingering length and aroma, very good indeed!
Perfect size for my daily morning coffee. It’s perfect in keeping my coffee hot during those cold mornings. Love the minimalist design as well (would be even better if it said made in Japan on it).
