The coffee kettle is another important part of your coffee-making arsenal, it is the tool where the first point of contact between coffee and water happens and sets you on your path to creating that perfect cup. Unevenly or too quickly applied water can ruin the whole process. Leaving that perfect cup just a distant dream. That’s why coffee kettles are often used to pour the water over the coffee and why many have long curved spouts. The curved spout gives perfect control of speed and direction. Here are a few suggestions for coffee kettles that you might like;
Hario V60 Buono Coffee Drip Kettle
The Hario V60 Buono Coffee Drip Kettle is a beautiful pot with a slim spout that ensures smooth flow, easy pouring, and control. The length of the spout also means the water doesn’t come out too quickly, vital when you’re doing that first pour. The kettle holds enough water for three to four cups.
Takahiro Pour Kettle
The Takahiro Pour Kettle is another beauty with a long slim spout ensuring that perfect pour. Its stainless steel design means there is virtually no residue in the taste of the water. The manufacturer suggests not using it over an open flame although electric burners are fine for use. The handle has been known to get hot during heating but compared to the pours of the other kettles many believe it is a small price to pay.
Bonavita Electric Kettle
The Bonavita Electric Kettle is an electric curved spout kettle. Contained entirely in one unit is the means to heat and pour your water without having to use an external heating source. An attractive item, the Bonavita Electric Kettle can be used for other hot drinks such as tea or hot chocolate, but clearly designed with coffee in mind. The slim, elegantly curved spout provides complete control over your pour. The automatic shut off means that your water never boils over.

Finally, we have the Fino Pour-Over Kettle, a small chic kettle that can hold enough water for 6 cups of coffee. With an angled handle that keeps your hand away from the hot pot and a curved spout that perfectly controls the flow of water, this kettle is perfect for any pour-over coffee lovers. Not only can it be used on gas and electric stoves but it is also dishwasher safe.
