This wonderful dripper is made using the Hasamiyaki – meaning Hasami porcelain – method, a traditional porcelain crafting method that originates four centuries ago in the Hasami town, Nagasaki prefecture. Hasamiyaki uses Amakusa Touseki, a potter's stone from Amakusa, Kumamoto, to arrive at its characteristic pure-white color.
This collaboration between Kalita and Hasamiyaki has allowed the creation of a porcelain that is both slim and sturdy, a perfect merging of light weight and lasting durability. Each is handcrafted by experienced artisans, and the level of craftsmanship is exhibited by the ability to actually see light through finished the porcelain.
The Kalita Hasami Dripper maintains the Kalita tradition of design, and features three drain holes and ribs to create a perfect air space between the filter and dripper. This time-tested, signature design ensures that Kalita's products always yield an extraordinary brew.
The Hasami Dripper's design also allows it to sit sturdily on any server or mug. The bottom of the dripper is crafted with a beautifully-rendered outline of the Kalita logo and the “Made in Japan” seal.
