Sometimes, before that first cup of coffee, drowsiness gives us the drop-sies. Luckily the Kalita Wave Series has a stainless steel version of their beautiful (and breakable) glass version. Both coffee drippers incorporate a flat-bottom design 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.

I like that the short walls of the 155 allow the pour to get very close to the coffee, allowing what I understand Nick Cho to mean by a "zero pour."
However, the filters on the 155 can be a hassle: they don't always maintain their shape and sometimes give up their "wave" and collapse in on themselves. This has never happened to me with the 185.
Interestingly, the bottoms of the 155 and 185 have identical circumferences and you can use 185 filters on the 155 dripper. Of course the filter sticks out of the top of the 155, but only little. Sep 2, 2013

Nice pour over coffee makerReview by Matt

The Kalita Wave dripper makes a good cup of coffee. The 155 was a bit smaller than I anticipated. I'm accustomed to a Hario 02 dripper and a Chemex. Twenty-four grams of coffee and 340 grams of water are about all the 155 can accommodate. The three small holes make for an extended brew time, compared to the Hario and the Chemex;I use a continuous-pour technique. I've only used the Kalita a few times, but the coffee seems bright and bold . . . maybe. I'll keep experimenting with it.
