We like to brew a small cup and wondered if certain cones do a better job.  Right now have an older small single hole Melitta that does OK.

Waiting on a Kalita 155.

thx

Personally, I'd go for a V60-01 cone (the smaller one) with this technique:

Never gotten a bad cup using this dripper and method. Gotta keep the grind pretty darn fine though. I usually adjust the recipe and pour with 250g of water.

And yes, despite what some people say, the drain hole on the 01 is smaller than the 02.

Thanks. How does  the Hario 01 compare to the Kalita 155?

I haven't used the 155, but I have the larger 185. I prefer the V60-02 to the Kalita 185. The Kalita filters are expensive and an an absolute pain in the butt to deal with when pre-wetting. The taste is also almost always considerably better from the Hario. That could just be because I've put more time and effort into the Hario.

I know the Kalita has its fans, and sometimes I enjoy messing around with it, but I just find the V60 to be a more versatile brewer.

That said, if you already have a 155 on the way, use it and experiment with it. I'm sure you'll be able to make excellent cups with it given time and practice.

It's on back order til the end of the month.  I can cancel it.   The large hole on the Hario concerned me but obviously it must not be a deal killer with all the happy owners.

I recently switched to a Kalita. I have the 185, as I usually do 600-700L (40grams of coffee) pours. I recommend using a coarser grind than drip, sort of Kosher salt.
In your single, go for 18 grams of coffee with 12oz of water to start with.



Edit: Evan is very experienced, and I agree with his assessment of the Hario, when done correctly, as he most certainly does. One reason I switched to Kalita, is it's much easier for my daughter to make excellent coffee with it. :>D

I've not used the 155 either but I do rate the Kalita 185 as top of the pile for me.

It is consistent and easy to use. I also like the fact that you can use a coarser grind and a longer steep time. It took a while to realise but I much prefer coarser grinds with longer steeps than finer grinds over a shorter brew cycle as characterised by the Hario (at least the way they are used commercially).

v60-01, Kalita Wave 155, and the Beehouse are all amazing and just have tradeoffs based on your preference. I usually rock the plastic v60-01 just because I have invested a lot of time in learning how to brew on it.
