C4 Coffee Co's Kalita Recipe

October 12, 2022 0 tags (show)

We’ve been experimenting with our latest arrival of a brew gear - the well known Kalita Wave made by Kalita Co. in Japan. Unlike other classic cone shaped brewers such as V60, the Kalita Wave has got a flat bottom with just three holes in it. This design tends to result in a slower flow rate and more consistent results. We’ve looked into it for you and found the perfect easy-to-follow recipe.

What you need?

  • Kalita Wave
  • Kalita Wave paper filter
  • Kitchen scale/timer
  • Near boiling water
  • 20g of freshly ground coffee (a bit coarser than you’d do your V60) 


  1. Put paper filter in your Kalita and rinse with some hot water. 
  2. Put coffee in the Kalita and pour 40g of water onto the grounds to let it bloom for 30s. 
  3. After 30s pour more water in to top up to 100g of water, then to 200g and finally to 300g. Your brew should finish around 3 minutes.
  4. Pulsing/splitting is less common with Kalita.
  5. Enjoy!
