Method Highlights

Our favorite brewer for an individual cup, the Wave consistently produces clean and balanced coffee thanks to its flat-bottom design and ease of use.

How to Brew

Step 1
Heat water to a boil (or about 205 degrees if using a digital thermometer).

Step 2
Grind coffee medium-fine, or slightly courser than table salt.

Step 3
Place the filter in the Wave and rinse it with a small amount of water.

Step 4
Put the ground coffee into the Wave and gently pour about 50g of water over the coffee, or just enough to saturate. Try to keep the amount of water to about 2x the weight of the coffee. Let the coffee saturate for about 45 seconds.

Step 5
Slowly pour about 200g of water over the coffee in a circular motion. Once about half of this water has filtered through the coffee, continue to pour the remaining water in roughly 50g increments.

Step 6
Remove Kalita Wave from mug/server, swirl to ensure even incorporation, and enjoy!
