“Our favorite dripper is the Kalita Wave 185 because it produced the most consistent, even, and flavorful cup of coffee among all of the drippers we tested. Pour-over is simple and makes for delicious coffee.”
Featured in The Wirecutter’s Best Coffee Makers for 2018.
Kalita Wave 185 Drippers is a premium coffee dripper that comes with a flat-bottom coffee bed geometry, three-hole design work, and a patented “Wave” filter that renders a consistent extraction, resulting in a perfect brew that is easy and accessible. The coffee dripper is available in three styles ceramic, glass, and stainless steel.
The three materials give the coffee dripper different properties – the textured stainless steel built dripper is attractive and durable, the ceramic coffee dripper helps in greater heat retention, and the glass built coffee dripper is attractive and clear.
The Kalita Wave 185 Drippers is a large coffee dripper that is built to brew at least two cups of coffee at one go. Using the coffee dripper, you can directly brew your favorite coffee into a cup or mount it on a brew stand such as a TruBru. The company recommends the size #185 to brew nearly 26-45 grams of coffee that yields 16 to 26 ounces of brewed coffee. The coffee dripper does not include a filter, and it is advised to buyers to purchase the compatible filters.
The filter holder of Kalita Wave 185 Drippers has a flat bottom design instead of a cone-shaped filter basket, and the filter design promotes a uniform bed of coffee grounds, resulting in a balanced flavor extraction. The bottom of the funnel of the coffee dripper has a flat disc that serves as its base, suspending it over cups. Brewed coffee drips down through three holes on the base and inside the filter basket into the selected container.
