Kalita’s very first product created in collaboration with “Made in Tsubame”, a brand and engraved mark that is given only to products that pass the conditions set by the Tsubame Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
This new dripper is completely handmade by the qualified craftsmen of Tsubame-shi, a well-known district in Niigata prefecture for its metalworking craftsmen and their techniques.
Produced with Kalita’s traditional three-hole structure with a flat bottom designed to extract evenly, allowing to accommodate all brewers. Together with the wave filters, anyone can brew with a consistent flavor each and every time.
Great dripper. The craftsmanship alone makes it worth it. Brews very good coffee. This company has very fast shipping to the US and fantastic customer service!
Such a quality piece, and fun to brew with. I was deciding between the Tsubame or another Glass Kalita to purchase after I broke my Glass Kalita Wave 155 but decided to spend more on the Tsubame as it is sturdier. Other than the slightly slower pour time compared to the Glass version, the Tsubame still produces great cups of coffee for me. Lastly, it's such a beautiful piece of equipment aesthetically that it has become my go-to brewer over my other equipment.
The build of this piece quality is insanely good. The 155 takes sometime to dial in, but once it's in the sweet spot, the cup quality is consistently good.
