Why Use a Hario Electric Kettle?!

September 23, 2020

Hot Water... Possibly the most underrated aspect of your coffee brewing routine, but one with the utmost importance. If your water is too hot, you can sear your grounds, resulting in overly bitter or tannic notes in your coffee. If your water isn't hot enough, you won't extract as many of the possible aromatics and tasting notes from your coffee.

The sweet spot for brewing coffee is between 190º-205º, but often when we're in a rush we simply grab hot water and start pouring.With the Hario Electric Gooseneck Kettle, you'll have the convenience of heating your water with the flip of a switch, and won't need to monitor the process.

The Hario Kettle automatically turns off when the water reaches boiling. Simply let the kettle sit for :45 seconds after the heating process completes, and you'll be all set to brew the perfect cup at the perfect temperature! If you forget that your coffee is heating and leave the room for too long (happens to us all of the time), you can simply push the switch back into the "On" position and bring your water quickly back to a boil. 

Additionally, with the gooseneck spout, you'll be able to perfectly control your pour no matter the brewing method you choose. If you're a pour-over fanatic and you'd never previously used a gooseneck spout, you're in for a treat with this electric kettle. You can perfectly pour and control the water flow when working through the bloom and subsequent steps with your Hario V60 or Chemex.
