<About Hario V60>
With its swirling ridges and startling looks, the Hario V60, Ceramic Coffee Dripper is a staple to any filter kit. The ceramic filter cone of the V60 highlights the flavor-enhancing ribbing and aesthetic elegance of Hario’s exquisite, hand-pour coffee dripper. Conceived and crafted in Japan, the V60 has become a ‘go to’ dripper design for leading baristas in many of the world’s most popular pour-over coffee shops.
Very good dripper i love it so much especially if you using 4:6 method.
The Kasuya model really makes a difference and slows the drawdown. Allows you to use a coarser grind that produces a sweet and flavorful brew.
I’m very satisfied with the quality of this V60 and the coffee it created. The sweetness is outstanding compared to the traditional one. I tried Burundi Kayanya Kibingo Station roasted light, water at 93 degree, coarse grind, 3’30” brew time. If you have good beans, roasted well, ground right, you’ll have incredible coffee to enjoy.
Easy dripper to use. Makes a good cup. I would say excellent if I can get the grind size right.
