Last but not least, for the perfect pour-over coffee setup you'll need a coffee scale, the best in the line. Choose from our Acaia Pearl Smart Coffee Scale in two different designs, Wilfa Svart Coffee Scale or classic Hario Drip Scale.
Once you get down the basics, let's have a look at your pour-over coffee kit. Hario V60 glass server is the best filter coffee server you can get for your home brewing station. With these, remember that the glass servers hold the temperature of the brew for a limited time. But at the end of the day, any cup of coffee is best served fresh.
Alternative to all these elements is the Hario glass filter coffee maker- this drip decanter coffee brewer is super practical and perfect if you're looking for an easy solution to your coffee needs. However, if you want the proper experience for your drip filter coffee, the filter coffee set is the choice of your favourite baristas.

Now that the set-up is ready, the perfect coffee dripper goes on top. There's a lot of talk about Kalitas and V60 drippers, but what's the difference?
Simply put, the Hario V60 dripper is an absolute classic. This coffee dripper is shaped to allow even dispersion of water through the coffee ground and therefore assure the perfect cup. V60 filter coffee became popular in the early 2000s when Hario invented their V60 coffee dripper.
This 60-degree angle-shaped cone was a revolution in filter coffee once it came to the world and for years remained the best coffee dripper on the market. The quality of the brew is undeniable, and what's more, you can get your V60 in multiple designs.
Even though Hario is known for its glass equipment, its ceramic V60 coffee drippers are something else! Try out the Hario V60-02 Ceramic Coffee Dripper in white or a more dramatic design with Hario V60-02 Kasuya Ceramic Coffee Dripper in black.
However, nowadays Kalita is becoming more popular and here's a simple reason why.
While the V60 dripper has a perfect shape and angle, during brewing the bottom part becomes a problem. As the coffee world evolves, the equipment has to progress with it and even though Hario V60 was the perfect product, there can always be a better one.
Alternative to V60 coffee drippers
Kalita Wave is currently the best manual drip coffee maker you can get. Thanks to its wavy design and flat bottom, the water flows evenly through the coffee grounds until the very last second of brewing.
This ensures an even extraction of your coffee and a perfectly balanced brew. Moreover, the wavy design of the pour-over coffee filter for Kalita gives you total control over the brew and water flow.
The drip filters are an important part of your decision making while choosing the pour-over coffee set. Coffee filters for drippers come in various sizes, depending on how much coffee you brew daily. The materials also change, progressing to more sustainable materials that can either be composted or reused again and again.

Frequently Asked Questions about Coffee Drippers
What is a coffee dripper?
The key piece of equipment when making your hand brew is a pour-over coffee maker. This usually means the coffee dripper or a cone-shaped brewing accessory that allows the water to flow equally through the coffee grounds and extract the best flavours and aroma from your coffee.
What is the difference between pour-over and drip coffee?
The pour-over method gives you full control over the brewing because you're the one in charge of the pour. In drip coffee machines, the coffee maker takes over the pouring and usually drips the water evenly over the coffee grounds to extract the coffee.
