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.

Makes for an excellent ceramic v60.
While I'm not the biggest fan of the flat-bed dripper when used with the v60 paper, the versatility of it is definitely a big plus.
Service by Kurasu is amazing: fast delivery, great follow-up, it is a real pleasure!
W60 is not a revolution but it is a nice addition to your coffee setup if you have already a V60.
But if it is your first dripper, then for sure, it is a the best possible option as it will allow you prepare your coffee 3 different ways... at least!
Fun to use, versatile, makes delicious coffee.
Kurasu great and quality service
