Kalita Wave 185 Brew Guide

The Kalita Wave is a modern variation on the classic Pour-Over method. Using a flat-bottom for a more even extra extraction, the Kalita Wave produces a complex, expressive cup of coffee that emphasizes the coffee’s fruits, acids and aromatics. Consider pairing it up with a Kenyan, Ethiopian or high-elevation Guatemalan set of beans. You’ll be rewarded with some of the best tasting coffee imaginable.
