A favorite with the coffee experts at Intelligentsia, the Hario Buono Drip Kettle and Ceramic Dripper are made by the Hario Glass Company, which has been in business since 1921. "Over the years, we have experimented with many different methods for brewing single cups of coffee, and the Hario produces amazing results," according to Intelligentsia. "To use a pour-over brewer most effectively, you have to dispense water right where you want it. The spout of the Hario Kettle allows you to effectively control your pour. The angle of the cone, the large hole at the bottom, and the ribbing on the side walls all help to ensure a good extraction."
