The product gets 5 stars for it's quality and effectiveness. It also gets 5 stars for it's minimalist design. If you only need to make coffee for one or two people, this is an outstanding alternative to an electric drip coffee maker.
No more instant coffee for me when going camping, either!
At first I thought the 185 size would be ok for a single cup, and it is, but the 155 is tapered in such a way that it holds the smaller filter more straight up and down, giving a more even bed for the smaller amount of coffee grounds needed for only one cup, as well as letting the pouring spout be right at the level of the bed, rather than way above it.
Let me put it this way, it's simply a more elegant way of preparing one cup of coffee, and after all, that's really what I'm after, a small ritual to start my day that involves a bit of science, a bit of art, and a bit of mystery.
It would be easy to use a coffee maker, but I've opted for something that takes me back to the essence of what coffee brewing is all about, having total control over the entire brewing process. I love the thoughtful design of the Kalita system, the way the filters are designed to keep the brewing coffee away from the side wall, the way the flat bottom with 3 holes gives a precise bed of grounds that allows for perfectly even extraction, and the nicely built stainless steel dripper that is lovely to use, and a breeze to clean up.
So,how does the coffee taste? Well, that depends on so many things. At this level, the dripper is merely one part of the process, including where and how the beans are grown, the roasting process, the age of the roasted beans, the type of grind, the heat of the water, and finally, the method of extraction, which in this case is the Kalita 155 Wave Dripper. Use exceptional beans, roasted properly and used quickly, along with the proper grind done at the time brewing, and the Kalita 155 will deliver a cup of coffee that celebrates everything that coffee has to offer.
For me, the Kalita 155 Wave Dripper is one of those little things that makes each day just a bit more special.
Don't be put off by the fact that this is small. It looks like a little kid's teacup, but it's the right size for making a single cup of coffee. I brew 10 oz. of coffee using this dripper and it works perfectly for that amount of coffee. My default ratio is 295 ml of water to 17.7 grams of coffee. I have not had it for long, but no rust issues. Filters are easily available from Amazon.
It's definitely a great tool to have in your collection. Not the end-all be-all of drippers, but a very consistent and unfussy one.
I do still love the V60 and recommend both but in the end i prefer the Kalita. As other reviewers have noted, the 155 is small. I would not recommend it if you usually brew 17 plus grams of coffee. It cannot hold that much much water and coffee so you have to use very tiny pours to prevent it from overflowing, which can be easy to do with this thing. I suspect most people would actually want the larger size unless, you often make 12 gram cups. I just use the V60 for anything much larger.
Also it is very small and you can carry it without problem. because of it is material, it is hard to damage. Outlook is also very beautfiul.
