Kalibrera Ceramic Pour Over Dripper Review
The pour over is one of the most desired methods of brewing coffee right now. And if you’ve read any of my coffee reviews, you know that it’s my favorite way to make my coffee. Obviously I love trying out all sorts of brewing devices, so I’m really excited to share my review of a new pour over dripper.

The Kalibrera Ceramic Pour Over Dripper was designed by the folks at Iterayt, a product design company that seems to specialize in bamboo products. Their mission is to provide products that people use on a daily basis, like the pour over dripper, banana holder, and soon to come, a bamboo stand designed specifically for their pour over dripper.
The guys at Iterayt were nice enough to send me their pour over to try it out and give it a review, so if you are in need of a new dripper, head over to their website, or you can buy it by clicking on this link here.
I could probably go through and rate this dripper in a number of categories, including durability, functionality, price, etc… But I don’t think it’s a good idea to see how far I can drop a ceramic dripper on the concrete before it breaks. As far as price goes, it really can’t be beat, unless you’d rather use a plastic dripper. This pour over is very affordable, and actually costs less than a lot of others out there.
So the really cool thing about this dripper is that it has two small holes in the bottom where the coffee drips through. The holes are far enough apart that you can actually set it on top of two coffee cups, to brew to cups at the same time. Obviously you can brew enough for two cups with other drippers, but the concept I think is really cool. It allows you to brew two cups at the same time, with a consistent flavor profile in both cups.
The one down side to this dripper is the filters. The best filters to use are the Kalita 185 filters. Although I love the filters, they are a little pricey compared to standard cone or drip filters, and can be hard to find. I had to order them online and wait a couple weeks because they were on backorder. But you can obviously save by buying them in bulk, since you’ll be using them every day!
Since this is actually only the second dripper that I’ve tried, I don’t have much to compare it to, other than the Melitta ceramic dripper, which I’ve used for the last few months. Between the two, I could for sure taste a difference in the coffee. The Kalibrera dripper produced a much more flavorful cup of coffee than the Melitta, so obviously this has become my new every day coffee brewer.
Needless to say, this is a great design, and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking to purchase a new dripper.
