Kalita Wave 185 Dripper ($30 at the time of publication)

Among the drippers we tested for making great pour-over coffee, the Kalita Wave 185 Dripper produced the most consistent, flavorful, and balanced coffee, perfectly suited to your dad’s sophisticated taste buds. After brewing 150 cups, we found the Kalita Dripper’s flat-bottomed design promoted more-even water drainage and made it easy for beginners to get consistent results (for example, it made great coffee even when we just eyeballed the amount of water per pour, or when our aim and timing were off).

We like that it also comes in ceramic and stainless steel versions. Picking one material over another is ultimately a matter of your dad’s preference: Sneak a couple of suggestive questions into casual conversation to decide which might be the best surprise for him. Keep in mind that a full pour-over setup includes a lot more than just the dripper, such as a gooseneck kettle, a good burr grinder, a scale, and a timer.
