The origin of the V60

  • HARIO was established in 1921 as a manufacturer and seller of scientific products. The origin of “V60” started as brewing coffee using a familiar Erlenmeyer funnel and filter paper folded into quarters found in the company. Realizing that the conical shape (parabola of Y = X2) is the most natural and effective shape for filtration, the personal cone-shaped “Coffee Madness Era” dripper was released in 1980. The current "V60 Transparent Dripper" was created to evolve this shape to easily reproduce the flavor of cloth drip coffee using a paper filter.
  • The name "V60" comes from the V-shape of the conical dripper with a 60° angle.

  • Cloth drip coffee became popular throughout Europe around 1763. The V60 resembles the shape of the cloth drip, which has a long-established history.

  • Cone shape

    The V60 Dripper has a cone shape. The V60 Dripper allows for a deeper layer of coffee grounds than conventional fan-shaped drippers, with water flowing towards the center. This facilitates longer contact between the coffee grounds and hot water and a more thorough extraction.

    Large Single Hole

    One large opening allows for extraction similar to a cloth drip, without restriction on the poured water by the dripper. You can change the taste of your coffee by adjusting the rate at which you pour the hot water, allowing you to enjoy your coffee as you like it.

    Spiral Ribs

    The ribs (bumps) inside the dripper stretch up to the top to create a space between the paper and the dripper, allowing air to escape without hindering the expansion of coffee grounds caused by their “steaming.” Designed to maximize the flavor of coffee.

  • The V60 dripper has a structure that allows even those who seek a light taste or prefer a softer bitterness to enjoy their coffee.

  • Pour quickly for a smooth taste, or pour slowly for a richer taste. It is also easy to adjust the taste of your coffee by adjusting the extraction speed.

V60 basic recipes

Preparation and ratios

Preparation and ratios Preparation and ratios
  • Step. 1

    Fold the zippered part of the paper filter and set the filter snugly inside the dripper.

  • Step. 2

    Set the dripper onto the server and pour hot water over the entire paper filter to warm the device and remove any odor from the paper filter. Dispose of any hot water poured into the server.

  • Step. 3

    Put an adequate amount of ground coffee into the dripper to make the desired cups of coffee, shake gently to flatten it, and then place the dripper onto the server.

  • Step. 4

    Pour twice as much hot water as the amount of coffee, starting slowly from the center until the entire ground coffee is soaked, and wait for 30 seconds.

  • Step. 5

    Divide the pouring of hot water into 3 parts. (Amount of hot water per pour = 4 times the amount of ground coffee) Pour hot water in a spiral shape from the center, avoiding pouring directly onto the paper filter. The brewing time should be within 3 minutes, regardless of the number of cups.

  • Step. 6

    Brewing is complete when all the hot water poured into the dripper has fallen into the server.

History of the V60 transparent dripper

The world-beloved V60 was
created by HARIO,
a manufacturer of scientific

  • When the V60 was being developed, coffee makers were the mainstream method of coffee brewing. With boat-shaped (fan-shaped) drippers used for over half a century, HARIO was daring enough to develop a cone-shaped dripper. HARIO has manufactured and sold physics and chemistry products since its founding in 1921. Using our heatproof glass technology, the “Coffee Syphon” was the first household product and coffee appliance created.
  • A full range of coffee

    In the 1950s, an increasing number of household coffee syphon, percolators, cloth drips and drippers (pots), and other coffee-related items came onto the market.
    At the time, brewing coffee with cloth was considered authentic, but HARIO’s Product Planning Office was brewing coffee using experimental equipment such as conical funnels and beakers.
    In 1980, HARIO released a paper dripper. Unfortunately, the new cone-shaped dripper did not gain popularity at that time, as instant coffee and coffee makers were the mainstream.

  • HARIO continued to develop and sell products using various brewing methods, such as stainless steel mesh filters and press-type coffee makers. Once again, the V60 development project was launched.

    Finally, in 2004,
    the V60 dripper was born!

    With its conical shape, rib that creates air passages, and a single large hole, the V60 dripper provides a smooth taste when poured quickly and a rich taste when poured slowly. This is a never-before-seen dripper that allows you to brew your favorite coffee with varying speeds of extraction
