The stainless steel Buono Kettle by Hario of Japan is the preferred water pourer for devices like the Chemex coffee maker. The secret to its popularity is the kettle’s unusually shaped spout; it’s long neck and narrow opening allows precise control of the flow of water over your coffee grounds. Why does this matter? Pour-over methods require grounds to be pre-wet (to "bloom") before brewing - usually requiring 30-50mls of water - using the Buono allows that level of detail to be achieved. The Buono Kettle is must for those who love to use Chemex!
We all here at Gathered have fallen hook, line, and sinker for the Chemex since we introduced it into the store. The Buono kettle is just the icing on the cake!
With the Buono for your Chemex, the whole process of coffee making develops a sense of serenity. It really is an event slowly unfolding. Take the time. Enjoy!
