Kalita Wave RecipeUpdated 4 months ago

The Kalita Wave is a flat-base brewer that sets this brew method apart from other pour over methods:
  • Filters with wave-like grooves. The filters used for the Kalita Wave feature a 20-wave design that limits contact with the brewer itself, allowing water to flow evenly and at just the right rate. 
  • Once the water reaches the flat bottom 3-hole design, water is prevented from accumulating, allowing for even coffee extraction.


  • Servings: 1-2 people
  • Coffee: 20g
  • Grind: Medium
  • Water: 320g
  • Water Temp: 195-205°F
  • Ratio: 1:16
  • Brew Time: 2:45 min
