Handmade in Japan
Kalita was found in 1958 in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. They produce quality drip-based-coffee-making equipments and is well known for their paper filters, drippers, and grinders. Now Kalita has become a household name amoung coffee enthusiasts.
I love the beauty of the beauty of the Kalita dropper, beautifully delicate, with great design and functionality. I'm happy using the drip here in Chile!
The Kurasu sales and tracking service has also been excellent, I hope to re-buy Kalita in Kurasu soon
Prior to receiving this dripper, I had only used conical brewers such as the V60. Although I love the clarity that V60 provided but the Kalita provides a much sweeter cup with richer body.
My first flatbed dripper. The ceramic retains heat well and the flat bed makes consistent drip coffee easy to achieve.
I suppose if you have some very good grind of beans and you'd like a slightly slower drip, this is the one. It didn't go as fast as cone dripper and itx almost certain that you will get a very good bloom out of it.
The brewer is very well made and sturdy. It's really hard to mess up your cup since the flat bottom promotes even extraction and no channeling. Highly recommend getting the ceramic version because it drains quicker.
My personal recipe is a 10 gram recipe and after trying out so many filters, this has become my favorite as it had a slightly slower draw down. I always end up with a really clean cup. My daily driver is this, paired with the Tujiwa Kanaami hand woven mesh dripper which I also bought here at Kurasu.
I absolutely love this easy pot!
This brewer is stunning and versatile, I can brew good tasting coffee using both flat and conical filter papers. I haven’t really used it that much but it’s good so far.
Overall a really refreshing and fruity coffee to have before bed/late at night without the caffeine buzz. The caramel aftertaste/mellow bitterness accompanies the white peach fruity notes to give something similar to a white peach tart/pie. It goes super well with caneles/basque cheesecake/or any dessert with a deep caramelized taste or simply just some cut up white peaches.
Really nice blend of matcha to have everyday, honestly it’s kinda hard to find this amount of high quality matcha for this price
