Not your typical pour over! The Kalita Wave Series adds ingenuity to a time tested coffee making design. The beautiful glass dripper has a comfortable handle and a plastic collar to keep it in place. The Wave incorporates a flat-bottom coffee dripper with a patented "Wave" filter. Together they create an even coffee extraction that you control. Take a little time to perfect your pour and this coffee dripper design will amaze you with delicious results.

The 155 Wave dripper is optimized for brewing a single-serving of brewed coffee. We recommend this dripper for 1-2 tablespoons of coffee, yielding 12-16 ounces of brewed coffee.

The 185 Wave dripper is for when you need that venti size coffee. Try 2-3 tablespoons of fresh ground coffee and ideally your yield will be approximately 16-26 ounces of brewed coffee.

Pros
  • Relaxing Ritual - Take time to smell the coffee! A perfect pour over takes about four minutes of brew time.
  • Ride the Wave - With the patented Wave filter design, you can achieve amazingly delicious coffee results with the proper prep.
Cons
  • Party Pooper - This is not the coffee maker meant for a crowd. Limited capacity is ideal for 1-4 servings of coffee.
  • Filter This! - You can't run to the corner store for specialty Wave coffee filters, plan ahead so you don't run out!

Tips and Tricks

Joseph S asked: Im wrestling with which size to buy. I will usually be only making a cup for myself, but would like the option to make another cup for a friend too. Is it possible to brew 12oz. of coffee with the 185? Or will that compromise the brewing process? Dec 13, 2013

BRIAN F: Well Joseph, I guess you could get 2-8oz cups out of a 185 but you would have to load the filter with coffee and the resulting product might not be as satisfactory as a single 12 oz cup and would be somewhat diluted. If you try, I would move the 185 back and forth between the cups to even out the flavor. Might as well try, it cant hurt. Two 12 oz cups would be stretching it. Good luck Dec 13, 2013

Cathy B: I would go with larger version for just the reason you stated. As my mom used to say "you can always cook small things in a too big pot; never big things in a too small pot. Brewing 2 in a 185 is not something I would do. In your shoes, I would buy the larger dripper, get filters for both sizes, and use the smaller filters for your solo use. Good luck! Dec 15, 2013

Michael K: Absolutely go with the larger one. I have the smaller one and could not believe how small it was! I rarely brew more than a single serving and still wish I went with the larger one. Compared to a V60 or a clever it's substantially smaller. Dec 13, 2013

Lichung C: we have both 155 and 185, and i found most of the time we use 155. it's fun to have both when friends come over, and we'll play with both. but we never use 185 to brew two cups, and 185 is definitely too big for 12 oz. Dec 14, 2013
Reply to Lichung Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jan F: I've brewed up to 24 g with a 16x ratio - so right around 12 oz. with evaporation included. If you wanted to brew more than a single 12 oz. cup though, I'd go with the larger model. Dec 13, 2013
Reply to Jan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph H: Yes, it is sized to hold enough grounds to make 2 cups. If you want less simply adjust the coffee and water. The smaller Kalita does not give you this flexibility. Dec 13, 2013
Reply to Joseph Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Patrick P: Yes, that should work. The dripper for the 185 tapers enough that you can still get an even distribution of grounds when brewing for just 12 oz of coffee. Dec 23, 2013
Reply to Patrick Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Marie S: I brew 16 oz with mine all the time. It works fine - tastes good. I use about 1.5g of coffee per oz of water. Dec 13, 2013

A shopper asked: Can this dripper in the #185 size be used successfully with the Able Kone 3 SS filter? Jun 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Diane C: No way! I have the Able Kone...it has a very definite point at the bottom; the Wave is flat bottomed, with two discharge holes. The shape of the Kalita filters is what makes the brewing process so good in these little drippers...I have found it to be the best cup I have had. Yes...I like it better than the Kone, although that is my second choice. I'm on a moka pot kick now...maybe I'll go back to the Kalita one day. It really does give you subtleties that you don't get with any other brewing method, IMHO. And remember, size matters...the little Kalita is the perfect one cup brewer. With the Kone, you'll want to brew 2 to 4 cups to get the maximum benefit of that extraction process. Jun 14, 2014

Sam W.: The Kalita has a flat bottom. It is not cone shaped which is what makes it unique. Therefore any filter which is cone shaped (which the able filter is, as it's name implies) won't fit in it. Jun 15, 2014
Reply to Sam W. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jim H: No. It's too small and the wrong shape. The Kone works in the Hario v60 and the chemex. Jun 13, 2014

David A: No it will not fit , kalita has a flat bottom Able Kone comes to a point Jun 13, 2014

Taku L: I would guess no, because the Wave dripper has a flat bottom. Jun 13, 2014

Choong-ha N asked: Does the coffee touch on the glass part(s) in the glass dripper? I see the tray is black and suspect that might be plastic. Jun 18, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, the black edge is plastic, however it just rests on your cup, running only around the base of this pour over. Your coffee just passes through the inner glass of the Kalita Wave Glass Dripper and does not touch plastic while brewing. Jun 18, 2013

I bought it because my favorite maganize recommended it. I love using it. It is pretty and easy to wash and maintain. The most important thing is to make a pretty good coffee. I am thinking of purchasing a larger version.
