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.

  • 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.
  • 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!
How Does it Compare?

The Kalita Wave coffee dripper is one of the finest pour overs on the market.

Tips and Tricks

In order to maintain the wave shape of the Wave filter, use a gooseneck tea kettle for the best control of boiling water.

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.
Choong-ha N on Jun 18, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

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?
Joseph S on Dec 13, 2013
Best Answer: 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

which would ypu recommend the Glass, metal or Resin dripper and why?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2014
Best Answer: glass, in my opinion, is the most versatile. it doesn't stain, impart flavor or absorb as much heat as metal. resin doesn't have the insulative value like glass so the heat from you water dissipates quickly. the downside to glass is that it will eventually break (fall on the floor, tip over your cup, etc.) so purchase a second one for backup...

i also have the resin Hario dripper and it definitely stains. it's my go to travel dripper for car camping and general travel. it has developed microcracks from the dishwasher and definitely stains. i also have the snow peak metal dripper which uses the Hario filters that i bring when ultra light hiking/camping when space is an issue. again, the metal absorbs the acidity and will impart off flavors in your cup. when camping, and roughing it, i find that trade-off acceptable.

as i mentioned, the metal kalita dripper will react with the acidity of the coffee and impart off flavors. it will also absorb plenty of that precious heat from your water which is necessary for your grind to properly brew.

Can this dripper in the #185 size be used successfully with the Able Kone 3 SS filter?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

Better than the cove filter productsReview by bagelbakerextraordinare
Love the glass bowl, the small size and great filters. Wish I had gotten the larger version to start. (Posted on 8/9/2014)
I love it!Review by Nekochan (Kitty Cat)
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. (Posted on 2/28/2013)
