The V60 Dripper was designed by the Japanese company Hario. It was founded in Tokyo in 1921. With the rise of coffee culture in Japan it led to the creation of their first coffee product, a filter coffee syphon, in 1949. The V60 is a relatively new concept and design only hitting the market around 15 years ago. The name stems from ‘vector 60’ due to the 60º angle of the cone in which it’s brewed.
What is a Hario V60?
The most noteworthy highlights of the Hario v60 is people often comment that they can distinguish the notes in their coffee better, since it gives a truer richer flavor. As well as this, it eliminates the sediment that can sometimes happen when you brew coffee. It is also easy to use and environmentally friendly. The Hario v60 saves you time, since it takes just three minutes to brew a fresh cup of coffee, and the aroma is intoxicating. The machine itself is beautiful and elegant looking, and you can choose from a variety of styles/materials.
