Hario has perfected pour-over coffee brewing and grinding equipment for "by the cup" brewing. Hario, founded in Tokyo in 1921, started by producing and selling physical and chemical-use glass products. After almost 30 years of research, they produced Hario Glass. It uses 100% natural minerals to refine heatproof glass, making it environmentally friendly. In 1949, Hario launched its first home product: a glass filter coffee siphon. By 1957, this had become a cloth filter coffee siphon.
Hario has received hundreds of design awards, yet it’s the V60, launched ten years ago, that’s become its most famous invention. The name comes from vector 60, the 60º angle of its cone. The V60 was first introduced in ceramic and glass, then plastic, and finally in metal.
