If you’re at all clumsy, a beautiful Bee House, Kalita Wave or Hario ceramic/glass coffee dripper will end up shattered at your feet. That’s a terrible waste of $15-25, so spend a little more and get the Hario V60 Metal Dripper, it will last many years and save you in the end. Plus it looks pretty cool.
Metal Coffee Drippers offer something plastic/resin, glass and ceramic drippers can’t: being unbreakable. Granted, they can be bent, dented, scratched and squished, but if you knock a metal coffee dripper off the counter they will not break.
New From Hario
The Hario V60 Metal Dripper is made from stainless steal so you can be assured that it is as inert as glass or ceramic. The V60 Metal Dripper is available in copper color, black color and and stainless steel grey. All the colors have a clear coating to protect the surfaces which can be cleaned with a mild soap and soft cloth. The rubber seat is removable and washable. Do not put in the dishwasher.
Hario V60 Metal Coffee Dripper
We tested the Hario V60 Metal coffee dripper and found the steal cone nicely manufactured as well as visually pleasing. The construction is a spun metal cone seated on a black rubber base. The handle is securly spot-welded to the cone. The V60 Metal Coffee Dripper comes in metal-copper, metal-silver and metal-black. Shop Here (Amazon)
Hario also makes a solid copper V60 Coffee Dripper, but at $99 it’s pretty much for the one percenters (not the motorcycle gang), as there is no taste difference. Available Here (Amazon)
