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.
I'm really pleased with the Takahiro kettle! It arrived in Sweden after 5 days. The kettle have a very nice finish, it's beautiful! It's easy to control how fast you want the water to flow. I highly recommend this kettle. Kurasu is a very nice store and I plan to order more stuff soon. Thanks!
Received the product after 6 business days due to local post issues. Product was well packed. Very happy with the water flow control of the product. Great product!
Been experimenting with the takahiro kettle and I'm pleasantly surprised :] Arrived in perfect condition & well packaged. Would like to see Kurasu doing a pour over guide video if possible. A definite thumbs up!
Just got the clearance from the custom, because I have to pay extra taxes. Haven't open it yet but looks very well packed. Thank you, Yozo. Arigatougozaimasu!
Ordered three Takahiro 0.9L kettles on kurasu.me. The items arrived promptly within 2 working days, nicely packaged, and in perfect condition. Prior to placing my order with kurasu.me, I had sourced around Kyoto and Osaka for the same product, but kurasu offered the most competitive prices, and it delivered to my doorstep without any extra charge.
I'll definitely shop with kurasu.me for my future coffee needs.
