Kalita at Assembly

Assembly is excited to be selling a selection of Kalita products, online and in store! Alongside Hario V60, we've been brewing a whole lot of coffee using our new Kalita wave drippers. And we're really loving the results. We've found that we have been getting good results from grinding courser than we do for V60, to work with the increased resistance that comes from the smaller holes at the base. Wave drippers have a wider base too, which allows for a flatter coffee bed that we've found is suited to a larger dose (and therefore more water as well). In general, it seems like a more forgiving way to brew pour over. Wave dripper options include ceramic (which holds heat well), stainless steel (which heats quickly) and glass (which provides the flat, only non-ribbed walls). We also have the beautiful Wave drip pots which aren't dissimilar to Chemex for brewing. We've got wave filters in brown and white too. Also, very excited to have the beautiful copper precision pouring kettle which is 0.6 litres and probably my favourite pourer yet. It has a restricted flow rate.

For inspiration on how to make a great pour over with a Wave dripper, check out the Nick Cho of Wrecking Ball/Kalita USA video. These very videos inspired us to learn more about, and stock Kalita Wave!
