Kalita Wave VS. V60

It may seem that Kalita's method of preparation remotely resembles just V60. However, it is quite significantly different. Thecoffee extraction isvery different in the two methods. The Kalita has a flat bottom dripper and there are three holes where the filtered coffee flows through. This ensures a regulated flow of water that produces an even and consistent cup of coffee. Unlike the V60 which has only one opening and the bottom is conical.

Kalita cancompensate for inaccuracies thanks to its technology , and this makes its preparation even more enjoyable. You can prepare it without a barista pot. You can make Kalitaeven on the go and enjoy a good filter in the middle of nature.

Kalita is one of the many alternative methods of preparing coffee. There are several methods, each with a different preparation and a different resulting taste. Besides Kalita, this includes the traditional moka pot, French press or V60 for example.

Making coffee can become such a pleasant ritual that you will be happy to repeat every morning. With the Kalita Wave you can do it easily, quickly and enjoy a great cup of coffee as a reward.
