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.
The material, weight, handle every part of this makes me feel good to use it. Even though compared this one to other Kalita I had, I feel like this makes the least delicious cup for me, but it stills has its own way like great for traveling. I still love the fact that it feels great to hold this one when I use it.
It's really easy brewing with Kalita, as it's very hard to get it wrong.
However, among the Kalitas this has the most tendency to clog (w/ filter blocking the holes). Would recommended placing a Flair Pro 2 shower screen or a tea-metal mesh filter beneath the filter
It's fun to use, especially I only brew for myself so this is just enough for me. It makes a balanced brew.
Love using this dripper. Extraction is always even! Amazing brews from this device.
Haven't had one from there but quite pleasantly surprised by the taste of it.
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.
