The Wave Series from Kalita is the premier coffee dripper available on the market. The flat-bottom coffee bed geometry, patented 'Wave' filter, and three-hole design work together to provide an even extraction that makes brewing a perfect cup accessible and easy.
Available in three styles: stainless steel, glass, and ceramic.
Brew directly into a cup, or mount it on a brew stand (like a TruBru). We recommend this size (#185) for brewing about 26-45 grams of coffee, yielding between 16 and 26 ounces of brewed coffee.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So I found a simple way to use the plentiful, inexpensive filters for a standard flat-bottom 8-12 cup coffee maker BTW, the 4-cup size works OK, but are a little too short on the sides -- the 8-12 size works better.
To use common filters flat-bottom filters, you have to use a slightly different method than usual. It's easy, give it a try -- you may prefer to buy the special filters in the end, but at the very least you can use this method in a pinch if you run out of the official filters.
Here's the "trick":
1) Set the filter on the counter (facing up, of course) and scoop ground coffee into the filter *while it's still flat on the counter*
2) Pick up the filter with coffee in it and place lightly in the top of the Kalita Wave.
3) Add just enough water to wet the grounds thoroughly. Now the wet grounds/filter will sink to the bottom due to its own weight. You might need to hold the edge of the filter to keep it from tilting.
4) Now it's business as usual -- pour rest of water as you normally do, and voilà! Same great coffee as with the special filters.
I defy anyone to tell the difference in a blind taste test!
Of course you could use a cone-type filter too, but the 8-12 cup flat filter does give you *nearly* as many "waves" around the sides as you get from the official Kalita filters -- no idea how important the gaps (due to the waves in the paper filter) really are in the end, but it's something to mention.
The price is considerably above some of the other options for drippers but unlike glass or ceramic, I''m thinking that these may be the last ones I ever buy.

While I could get some acceptable brews out of the Wave, when brewed side-by-side with the V60, the V60 brew was always superior in clarity and flavour. The Kalita brews would still pass as good coffee, but why would I pay £40 for the dripper and filters to get a result I don't particularly like?
It's certainly easier to brew with the Kalita, and I can see why it would be well suited to beginners, but the little extra effort required for a V60 brew is certainly worth it.
