Here’s another example of great coffee gear coming out of Japan.

This Woodneck Cloth Drip Coffee Maker is produced by Tokyo-based Hario. Since 1921, Hario has been producing heatproof glassware. As the company name translates to “King of Glass,” you probably get an idea of the quality this coffee maker will deliver.

This gorgeous coffee maker comes with a durable Woodneck glass pot, an easy-pour spout, and a high-quality wire frame with a flannel cloth filter. Just add hot water and coffee grounds, and a few minutes later you’ll have a rich brew. And best of all, the reusable cloth filter yields a smooth cup of coffee without the thick grounds at the bottom, unlike with some of the other brewing methods. When it comes to a smooth coffee, think of the Japanese, and skip the French. The French press, that is.
