Last week I purchase my very own Hario drip coffee kettle and drip cone. I had been wanting it for a while and after buying it I have no regrets! Just pouring the water over the coffee grinds makes me happy every morning (that’s probably strange but it’s really true).
This article talks about how popular coffee is in Japan. The New York Times: Coffee’s Slow Dance According to the article, Japan imports more coffee than France each year. Japanese drip coffee is better than regular coffee because the water is poured slowly over the coffee compared to other coffee machines. Some coffee shops in New York use the Japanese drip coffee technique like Blue Bottle Coffee who’s main store is in Brooklyn.
I bought my drip coffee supplies at Porto Rico Importing Co. at their Brooklyn location. This shop has a variety of coffees and teas as well as accessories. I highly recommend it!
