I purchased a Tetsu Kasuya dropper, initially I was worried about shipping a ceramic dropper overseas. The delivery came reasonably fast and in perfect condition. There was an attention to detail with packing the shipment I wasn’t used to. Beautifully packaged, and the coffee beans I ordered were exquisite. Very unique strawberry taste when brewed with the Tetsu Kasuya dripper. I was surprised to see such a light roast compared to the common roast I see in the United States. But it made an impeccably clean cup of coffee that went better as an iced coffee. I would say my experience was well received and if I am ever in Japan I would not hesitate to visit your shop.
Lovely V60! I appreciate it for the slight differences, but also for the craftsmanship.
Like many coffee enthusiasts, I’ve gone from French press to chemex to Kalita to V60 ... although this is merely a variant of a V60, I really enjoy using it. I noticed that some beans are better when ground quite small - like 12-14 on a Baratza. But with this dripper, I can grind as high as 27 or 28 and still get a really nice clean cup with enough flavor. Can’t really do that with a normal V60..! The service was very quick, it arrived at my home (Boston) in four days... Incredible.
Beautiful craft. Luxury materials. Honesty and tradition.
I finally got my hands on this Tetsu dripper. Been so curious about it. I find his technique easy to replicate and the quality of construction of this Arita-made dripper is wow. I did not experiment much bec i really stick to the 4:6 method and this combo does give a diff presentation of your bag of beans. Must try.
