As the former owner of a third-wave coffee shop, I’ve tried just about every kind of coffee maker you can buy, and the Kalita Wave is my preferred vessel for making pour-over coffee. It may not be as beautiful as a Chemex or as funky as the Hario Woodneck (another personal favorite), but it’s sturdier than the former and less labor-intensive than the latter. And since it’s not a delicate glass carafe, it’s much more portable and much easier to clean than either of them. For me, the Wave is a happy medium.
