The Takahiro pourer is dubbed the ‘Rolls Royce of pouring kettles’ by Oakland based specialty coffee roaster Blue Bottle Coffee.
Its no surprise the Takahiro kettle has a cult following around the world despite the high price tag. The graceful, swan’s-neck spout is believed by many users to offer the perfect, responsive flow of water required for the preparation of a top-class filter coffee.
Notice how the lip of the spout is uniquely shaped, providing the exact precision needed for a perfect-pour. The Takahiro brand was originally known in Japan as a respected manufacturer of professional kitchen equipment.
The Takahiro pourer has now become a popular model with professional Japanese baristas and passionate enthusiasts of the home-based, pour over filter coffee movement.
Question: Will there be a profound difference using the Takahiro kettle?
Answer: It is preference, but Takahiro kettle has the edge in terms of precision pouring and control. If you're after control in your pour-over experience Takahiro is the preferred brand for high-end cafes and coffee lovers.
Extremely well made - you get what you pay for - and lovely design, but more importantly perfect control of water flow for pour over. Service from Kurasu first rate.
