Kalita Wave 185 Stainless Steel Dripper
  • Description
  • Specs
  • Method
  • The Kalita Wave is one of the finest Japanese pour over brewers available. Due to its flat bottom design, and controlled flow rate - due to to three small holes in the bottom of the brewer - you can expect a more consistent brew every time. The Wave filters also encourage consistency of brew by reducing contact with the side of the brewer, maintaining more temperature stability. This is the iconic 185 (2 cup) stainless steel version.

    • Ideal for brewing 2-4 cups of coffee
    • Material: Stainless steel
    • Uses 185 Wave filters
    • Made in Japan

Superior Pour Over Experience

Recently ordered one of these to tide me over until Chemex filters come back. Have been using it the last week or so and enjoying the results it produces. It’s well-made and does what you’d expect - makes a nice, clean cup of pour over. Pleased with my decision to get the 185 over the 155. I typically brew with 400g water as I prefer a bigger cup of coffee. This fits nicely right on my mug and handles 400g of water with no issues.

As mentioned, I typically brew with a Chemex. My previous backup brew method was a generic ceramic pour over using Melitta No 4 filters, which I find gives a pretty poor result. The Kalita and its matching filters are infinitely better. I don’t enjoy it as much as my faithful Chemex but I suspect with a bit of fine-tuning and probably a grind adjustment I could get this tasting just as good.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for high-quality pour over. Hopefully the filters remain plentiful!

Truly the best flavoured coffee you can make at home!

I purchased this device a week ago. I wanted to start my pour over experience with an easier device then the Hario V60. (Believe me I went back and forth about getting it.) I ultimately landed on the wave 185. For the sake of size I went with the 185 to get more brewed cups out of this. I also purchased along with the wave the kalita wave glass 500 ml.

For size it will brew me 2 decent size mugs. Now back to the wave 185. I decided to give this a try after the several reviews on here and the ease of the brewing process with a flat bottomed pour over will distribute the coffee evenly a lot easier then the Hario V60 as I have heard the V60 is great if you are experienced with pour overs.

Now i have been recently using beans from Devils Head Coffee and adding 30 grams to the 500 ml measurement of the kalita glass. I find that if you are new to the brewing process to youtube some tutorials or even ask a local roastery how to get the best results by demonstrating it for you. I find with the measurements provided I have yielded amazing results. I have brewed several cups of delicious cups of coffee which has been rich in taste and gave me some of the besr cups of coffee I have ever had.

I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to enter into the pour over method of coffee making and avoid gettinf a cheap knock off on amazon to save money. I will update in due time if any problems with the device occur.

Great dripper

Really enjoy this dripper. It gives a nice and balanced cup of coffee. My go to is still a V60, but personally I feel this does a better job when my beans aren’t great or a bit old. The dripper is beautiful in person too!
