Takahiro Kettle

August 31, 2011

The Takahiro kettle from UCC Ueshima Coffee Co. is the classiest kettle out there.  It’s super shiny and well designed.  The spout allows a slow precise pour.  You can use this with an IH heater or on an electric range.  We do not recommend using the kettle on a gas range as the kettle can discolor.  This kettle is a must have for the serious pour-over Barista or anyone who wants to add a little class to their coffee ritual.

P.S. UCC Ueshima Coffee Co. introduced the worlds first canned coffee beverage in 1969!

    how does the takahiro compare with the kalita? aesthetic differences for sure; do you think there’s any difference in the final cup?

      Hi Billy,
      To be honest there isn’t much difference between the final cup. The Kalita and Takahiro have similar spout geometry, the real difference is the shape of the tip of the Kalita kettle. They both deliver water to the coffee in a similar fashion. Thanks for reading the blog!

    Any recommendations for induction cooktops for a kettle like this or the Hario Buono? I’ve only ever seen full-size cooktops that are sized for a pan or cooking pot.

      Hi Jason,
      I scoured the internets and found an induction cook-top off amazon that looks like it will be perfect. It has one burner and is very small. It’s seems like the full size cook-tops are so popular because they are intended for cooking and facilitating larger pans. I hope this helps.
