Mountain Dripper's Blazing Black 

With its aesthetics and  beautiful coffee it produces, Torch Mountain dripper has always been our and our customers' favourite. Now we have a difficult choice-- they released a black one.  

The 1-2 cup version of the Donut Dripper, the slim, stylish form allows the coffee to be perfectly layered and shaped to extract the best possible flavor. The finely-crafted, porcelain dripper features special internal ribs which guide the flow of water through the coffee grains. The large outlet hole ensures the optimum rate of flow for consistently smooth, full-flavoured, fresh-tasting coffee.

Each Torch dripper set features an exquisite Japanese Mino Yaki style porcelain dripper with an untreated, white ash base. Over time the attractive wooden base gains additional character from the natural patterns and staining of regular use.

2 Internal ribbings act as stairs to optimally hold the water to create contact with coffee. 4 small holes with one large hole in the middle creates natural water flow.
Tapered ridges inside the wooden base to stabilize the dripper (Improvement from April 2016)

    Customer Questions

    Question: What's the different between the Donut Dripper and the Mountain Dripper?

    Answer: Donut dripper takes up to 4 cups and created for dark roasted beans which is the main trend in Japanese coffee beans. It has more height than that Mountain so more beans hit the coffee grounds, giving the coffee a more heavy taste balance, which again works very well with dark roasted beans.

    The Mountain Dripper takes up to 2 cups created with the Donut in mind but designed more for Third wave / Western coffee bean culture with hints of acidity and fruitiness. Overall it drips slightly faster than the Donut and produces a more "clean" taste pallet great for light-medium roasted beans.

    QuestionHow does the dripper align with the wooden base? Does it have ridges for the dripper to be stable?

    Answer: The porcelain dripper just sits lightly on top of the wooden base. It does not have any ridges. Since the wooden base and ceramic drippers are each individually hand made, they are not "perfectly" constructed and you may need to find the "right spot" for the dripper to sit on the base. Personally, our team at Kurasu usually don't have any issues of the dripper titling for example, while extracting coffee.

    QuestionCan Kalita wave filters be used in the Torch Mountain Dripper?

    Answer: Yes! Kalita wave filters #155 can in used with the Mountain Dripper.

    Very good

    It's a nice dripper.
    You should try both Kalita wave and V60 filters to make coffee, the results are really impressives. I recommed.

    Good to try

    Try it and compare to your current Dripper. I won’t say it’s better but it will give you a diff taste. Try it yourself

    Love it!

    It's beautiful, and easy to clean.

    Good and different from Hario V60

    I have been using Hario V60 for some years now and the Torch Mountain for a couple months and both are very different. With the V60 every pour over is a surprise, because they vary for the slightiest changes you made in every detail and the Mountain you have something more constant. With Mountain I couldn't get the acidity and also the sweetness that I can get with the V60. It's not a bad coffee, I enjoy it everytime, but it's a coffee that hides the surprises of the bean, while the V60 emphasizes them. Even if it's the Torch version for lighter beans, it's probably a brewing method for those who enjoy more darker beans.

    Another Happy Purchase

    At first, I was a bit worried about having an item shipped to the Philippines. But the Kurasu team was there to assist me the entire time, and my item arrived safe and sound.

    This TORCH Mountain Dripper produces very clean and balanced coffee. It is easy to use, and looks really great! I love it!
