Its beautiful too look at, but to my surprise, also very easy to brew with. Have a good predictable draw time and nice size. Good for both experienced baristas and novices alike.
I like how I can use both V60 and Kalita filters, which makes this dripper very versatile. I enjoy all my brews using Origami, as it gives more balance and sweetness to the cup.
Decided to purchase an origami as my second dripper of choice. No regrets, happy with the quality of coffee I was able to extract from this dripper.
Kurasu sells them competitively priced. I bought a pair of origami with holder and was not disappointed as it is both a work of art and a good pour over dripper. The craftsmanship is excellent as you can see in the picture, the Chinese made origami style is way different from the original origami on the right.
When I first saw other people posting pictures of this, I thought to myself, wow, it's so pretty, I have to get this for myself. So I bought this from here and, truth be told, it's the most aesthetically stunning (and pleasing) coffee dripper I own now.
At first, I thought this would just become one of those novelty pieces that I would bring out every once in a while. Instead, the Origami has become my daily driver. Drawdowns on this, using V60 filters, are faster than on the V60, allowing me to use a finer grind setting. While the difference certainly isn't night and day, it's just enough of an improvement that I've converted. Or, perhaps, just the fact that it looks so pretty is influencing my perception of coffee I brew through it.
My only gripe is that I wish it had a more secure holder. It's a thick, high quality piece of ceramic, but it also feels fragile enough that I feel the need to handle this with a great amount of care.
