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.

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.
