From another exciting collaboration project from Hario and WBC champions, they introduce a "W"60 dripper- the next generation of V60.
The dripper has a slightly larger and curved structure compared to the staple V60, the shape resembling of that of tea cup- the iconic spiral ribs are deeper and more spaced out, to achieve a different approach to the water flow and coffee contact time.
The dripper comes with a mesh, flat-bottom filter attachment that allows 3 different brewing setups: 1) brew without the attachment, with cone-shaped paper filter, 2) brew with the attachment, without the paper filter set in the dripper, and 3) use both the attachment and a paper filter.
The method 1 results in a similar cup to that of V60, but slightly clearer and round cup. The method 2 will give you an even extraction in a richer cup full of coffee goodness. The method 3 works as a double filtration, and will result in an incredibly clean and well-extracted cup.
Be creative and try out many different combinations, and brew like a champ!
The product comes with Mr.Licata's recipe, instruction and his message.

Fun to use, versatile, makes delicious coffee.
Kurasu great and quality service
Love that I can choose to make coffee different ways. Using just the nylon mesh is my favourite way.
It’s like 3 drippers in one as you can use different combinations for different flavors. I wish the brewing instructions given with the driller are more precise though. But on the whole a great dripper to experiment with.
So Hario finally woke up and decided to bomb the market with drippers instead of waiting for others to dominate the market. I mean, it's a cool package, you can have a pure V60/W60 experience (forms do matter, but you have to make hundreds of tests side-to-side to really understand the difference form of dripper does to your coffee with your particular technique), you can do the mesh-one (I've had such disc for AeroPress back in the day and wasn't amused, as I don't like sediments and oils in my coffee), and you can do both, which I had 0 success with, but oh well.
