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.
I loved my taster set. It was excellent. I am definitely going to order again.
Perfect for espresso machine!
Very suitable for the morning coffee. A bit fruity but it’s well balanced.
After finishing my brew, I used to use my drinking mug as the vessel to carry the "dirty" dripper to the kitchen sink immediately, empty the mug, and came back to my coffee. W/ the drip tray, i no longer need to make that extra detour. Once I finished brewing, i just needed to place the "dirty" dripper to the tray next to my scale. Save so much time. It's one of those "mundane" accessory that has so much impact on your workflow.
- Decided to buy this dripper from Kurasu even though it's available in my country as it's pricey here.
- Recommended to get the M size like I did so that you have the flexibility to brew wider range of grams.
- Even though the origami is ubiquitous, it's one of those designs that you just have on your dripper collection.
