This item is exactly what I wanted and makes a great cup of coffee. Kurasu is a great company that had really good communication and fast delivery for an item sent to the US.
I'm just a home brewer who is curious about this V60. When I first bought this, I believed that Kurasu would provide the best service. After I waited 3 weeks, I received the package intact and flawless. I like this V60 that looks pretty and elegant from a distance ... After that.. I tried brewing coffee with this V60. I tried to compare it with the widely used Hario V60 and used medium-sized coffee grind. so far, the flow of this V60 is a little slower. It tastes not much different. Well... I think I'm still quite curious about this V60. After fixing my brewing method, maybe I would dare to use this V60 properly and use the recipe created by Tetsu Kasuya.
Exactly what I was hoping for! The quality and sleek look of the dripper goes perfect with the stand (which I also bought) and is a great addition to my kitchen.
Easy control. 4-6 method and coarse grind produces a sweet cup. Nice to play around with the method.
Incredible performance for the Kasuya Model, however you have to adjust your grind coarser and preferably follow the 40/60 method for a better result when brewing.
