With its stainless steel and wavy contours, the Kalita Wave wins over coffee and design enthusiasts alike. At Weird Brothers the Kalita Wave is our preferred method for Pour Over Coffee. It’s a favorite pour over brew method for home use and it’s great on the go, too. The flat-bottom filter helps with even extraction while brewing. The key to mastering this brewer is the slow spiral pour.
Brewing with the Kalita Wave
Place and rinse the Kalita Wave filter in the dripper. This removes the paper flavor from the filter and warms everything up. Heat up your mug while you’re at it.
Discard the rinse water from the carafe or mug and grind 21g (about 3 Tablespoons) of coffee as fine as table salt. Add it to the filter, making sure the bed is completely flat. Place the Kalita Wave on top of a carafe or mug. Optional step is to use a scale. At this point tare your scale to zero.
Saturate the dry grounds completely with 60g of hot water right off the boil (about 205°F) in the first 10 seconds and allow it to bloom. Coffee degasses or “blooms” when it’s fresh–the coffee bed should rise up and bubble a bit.
If using a timer, at :45, pour water up to 200g in a spiral motion by 1:00. The spiral motion helps give you an even extraction and keeps everything integrated.
Pour small amounts (25-50g of water) periodically to hit 375g by 2:00. Submerging dark spots and avoiding light spots, slowly bring the water level to the top for an even extraction.
Your brew volume should reach approximately 300ml or about to the top of a 10oz mug at 2:45 to 3:00. Remove the Wave from the carafe or mug and set it in the sink for the rest of the water to drain through.
Enjoy your fresh brewed Coffee!
