This thin copper wire mesh dripper is hand-weaved to its perfection by highly skilled craftsmen of Tsujiwa Kanaami based in Kyoto.  No machine can weave in the way that the wire holes get smaller towards the bottom of the cone.  While the wire surface supports the filter paper and the coffee beans sufficiently, there is no extra passage between the dripper and and the paper for hot water to run through, so it only allows the water to go through the beans and you can securely extract the flavor of the coffee.  

And of course, it just looks cool.  As shown in the photo, the copper changes its color over the course of time, which is part of joy, but if you prefer the shiny glow, you can polish with vinegar.

 

About Tsujiwa Kanaami
Origin of Kyoto wire mesh is said to date back to the Heian period (that's 794AD btw).  Wire mesh was made popular by craftsmen who have inherited the skills, but when plastic products got introduced in the Meiji era (1868~),  wire mesh craftsmen were pressured by the low price point and most of them had to closed their shops.  Tsujiwa continued to produce works that the mass-produce machine can not imitate its refinement and has sustained their shop until today.  

 

NOTE:  Please make sure to use the cone-type filter paper for this dripper.
