The Origami coffee dripper is made in Japan of high density Minoware clay, a 400 year-old tradition in the Gifu region. This medium sized Origami brewer is great for making 1-4 cups of coffee, and can be used with Hario V60 type conical filters, or will take Kalita type wave filters with a flat bottom. You can add a collar in acacia wood or clear resin to the dripper for an additional cost.
The Origami dripper is an elegant and colorful addition to the morning coffee brew. When used with the V60 type conical filter, the 20 folds encourages faster brew time by enabling faster airflow, perhaps a reason it is used by many brewing competitors at coffee events. When used with a Kalita wave style filter, it can be used as a flatbed brewer. (We prefer the V60 with this dripper though).
It's best to use the Origami dripper used with a collar ring to improve stability. The holder ring is additional to the price of the dripper, and you can chose either acacia wood, or clear resin. (The collar has no contact with coffee in brewing).

The Origami is ceramic and it's ok to run through the dishwasher, but we think hand-washing is best though. The clear resin collar ring should be hand-washed only, and the acacia wood collar should only be wiped clean. Do not soak the wood collar in water.
