I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.

Kalita Wave is one of many pour-over coffee brewers that is preferred by fans of specialty coffee and manual coffee brewing. Available in two sizes and three type of materials (Ceramic, Glass or Stainless Steel), Kalita Wave offers something for everyone.
What differentiates Kalita Wave than other pour-over drippers is its design. Unlike other drippers, the Wave is flat-bottomed, which gives you a more even extraction of coffee. It also uses a specially designed paper filter that reduces the contact between the brewing space and the dripper, giving you a fuller flavor.
As we mentioned, the Kalita Wave dripper is available in three different types: ceramic, stainless steel and glass. Is there a difference between these three materials?
When it comes to performance and how they brew, all three models work exactly the same.

Kalita labels its sizes with #155 and #185. The #155 is suitable for 1 to 2 cups, while the #185 is suitable for 3 to 4 cups.
Kalita Wave vs. Hario V60:
The Hario V60 is the most popular pour-over dripper out there. It’s been available for ages (probably why it’s the most popular), and has been tested, tried and loved by many. How is it different than the Kalita Wave?
Serving Coffee Using Kalita Wave or Hario V60:
Both drippers fit over standard mugs and can brew directly into your cup. If you’re brewing for more than one cup, it is recommended that you brew over a serving pot, which is available for both Hario V60 and Kalita Wave (sold separately by each brand).
Kalita Wave vs. Clever Dripper:
Clever Dripper is actually slightly different than other Pour-over drippers, including Wave and Hario V60. It combines two methods of brewing: pour-over and immersion.
As a fan of pour-over, you probably know the importance of using a goose neck kettle to pour water in your brewing process. It allows for a better distribution of water over the dripper and results in an even extraction.
The question is, is there a difference between Kalita’s Wave Kettle and Hario’s?
