Origami Dripper – The Beauty & The Brew

There comes a point where one may ask...

how many coffee drippers is too many?  Well, I'm not sure yet, and I know I haven't reached that point just yet.  So I felt like the Origami Dripper is a welcome addition to my already somewhat crowded home barista coffee cart. For what seems like quite a while now I've been seeing it plastered all over Instagram, and I was having a serious case of FOMO. Plus many fellow coffee geeks have told me that its definitely more than just a beautifully crafted and painted piece of porcelain, it actually brews a solid cup of coffee.  Well now, thanks to my good friends at Slow Pour Supply I've finally got one of my very own, and I'm able to find that out for myself if it is more than just a pretty face.

The Origami Dripper definitely has an eye catching design, and it seriously stands out next to my Kalita Wave and Hario V60 drippers. According to the Origami company, this design also serves a functional purpose. The twenty carefully crafted creases, or as they call them gutters, create space between the filter and the dripper. This design allows for a smooth, uninterrupted flow of water and air through the dripper which leads to a more even extraction.  Plus its design allows for the use of both Kalita's 185 flat bottom filters, and the classic V60 cone shape. So with all of that in mind, let's dive into this dripper and see if it lives up to its good looks and all the hype.
