HARIO POUR OVER COFFEE EQUIPMENT - PUT CEREMONY IN EVERY CUP OF COFFEE.
Hario combines the elements that Japanese manufacturers are known for - science, gentle traditions, and art - to create what will be the best coffee you have ever tasted.
Since 1921 Hario has been dedicated to the design and manufacturing of heatproof glass. Pre World War II, the purpose of the glass produced from the Hario factory in Japan was for science laboratories and medical uses. Hario heat resistant glass is of such great quality that it retains heat better than most. For a manufacturer that resides in a country that puts such emphasis on tea and coffee consumption, it only made sense after World War II to expand into making glass for coffee and tea making purposes.
Tea and coffee preparation in Japan is about beautiful and sensual ceremony. Preparing and serving coffee and tea is a choreographed, slow ritual with the attention being on gentle movement and aesthetics; always considering etiquette and guests in every movement. The ceremony involved enhances the coffee or tea experience.
Perhaps better than any culture, the Japanese understand that our food tastes better when it looks appealing. Although sight is not technically part of taste, it certainly influences perception. Interestingly, food and drink are identified predominantly by the senses of smell and sight, not taste. Food can be identified by sight alone—we don't have to eat a strawberry to know it is a strawberry. French researchers colored a white wine red with an odorless dye and asked a panel of wine experts to describe its taste. The connoisseurs described the wine using typical red wine descriptors rather than terms they would use to evaluate white wine, suggesting that the color played a significant role in the way they perceived the drink.
Hario understands that if the coffee equipment used to make coffee is as beautiful as the ceremony is serene, it will enhance the flavor of the coffee. It is undeniable that the metals used in the Hario drippers and kettles, the hammered copper and the polished steel, are stunning eye candy, but more than that, they are designed to extract maximum flavor from the brew. The beautiful ridges on the drippers serve a purpose, as does the graceful arch and turn of the handle on the kettles. The designs are such to create a gentle slow pour.
Even the Hario accessories are designed to slow your coffee brewing down to a pleasurable, sensual pace that gives you time to appreciate what makes coffee great.
