Hario Coffee Makers

On the Internet, we are more likely to know about Hario coffee grinders than about this famous Japanese firm’s coffee machines. The Japanese brand does not have a massive commercial presence online. The coffee makers it manufactures are not 100% oriented towards all tastes.

Hario doesn’t have Italian coffee makers or espresso machines in its catalogue, but drippers, decanters, vacuum coffee makers, or coffee makers for Cold Brew, to name a few. Does all this sound a little Chinese to you? Yes, you’ve guessed it: there are ways of preparing coffee that are more focused on the American consumer, and on the tradition of the Land of the Rising Sun, where these methods are the internal standards in any home. Manual coffee machines, without electrical equipment of any kind.

In any case, Hario is one of the great giants of the world’s coffee industry. Not only because of its coffee machines, but also because of the already mentioned manual coffee grinders. Because of its range of teapots, kettles and accessories for all kinds of infusions.

The Japanese company Hario is about to complete a century of history. It was founded in 1921 and specialized in the manufacture and handling of heat-resistant glass, an element that is naturally very present in both its coffee makers and the rest of the articles in its catalogue. Its headquarters are in Tokyo, and its current general manager is Yasuhiro Sibata.

Buy a Hario Coffee Maker: Prices

As you can imagine, Hario’s coffee makers have high-temperature-proof glass as the main element in their manufacture. It, together with the peculiar characteristics and preparation methods, makes Hario coffee makers medium-high price items.

Even so, we must not forget that elements such as decanters are unaffected and will always be affordable. And it’s never a wrong time to try new ways of making coffee. You might get a surprise.

And, on the other hand, if you are already fond of preparing your coffee with decanters or with siphon coffee makers, you will find few options in your country market beyond this brand. That’s what specialization is all about.

To conclude: here is an updated price list of all Hario’s coffee machines and accessories. In the following sections we’ll start talking about them in more detail:

Hario Siphon Coffee Makers

We begin with one of the Japanese company’s trademarks: the siphon (or vacuum) coffee machines. If this is the first time you have heard of this method of making coffee, we recommend that you first read our guide of vacuum coffee makers, to understand how they work.

Even so, if you have reached this page, you may already know the method, and what you are looking for is simply a good coffee maker to put it into practice. If so, we should congratulate you because you have come to the right place.

Hario offers you no less than three lines or models of siphon coffee machines: the TCA Series (in three sizes), the Hario Next and the Hario Sommelier.

Hario TCA Vacuum Coffee Makers (Hario Technica)

There are three sizes of the Hario Technica model: the TCA2, the TCA3 and the TCA5. The number indicates – roughly – the number of cups that can come out if we fill the water tank to the maximum. Respectively, their capacity is 240, 360 and 600 millilitres. And they don’t differ in any way other than their size.

All include a cloth filter, an alcohol burner to light the wick, and a free measuring spoon.

Hario Sommelier

The Sommelier is by far the best and most complete of Hario’s three siphon coffee machines. It also has a unique capacity of 600 millilitres (there is no smaller size) and its dimensions are 15 x 19 x 36 cms. Apart from the two filters – one made of fabric and the other of stainless steel – this Hario Sommelier differs from the previous ones in its design, very similar to a wine decanter.

We recommend it only for real experts in this type of preparation, who will use their vacuum coffee maker daily and for large quantities.

If you are buying a siphon coffee maker for the first time, we advise you to start with the Hario TCA Technica, which is much cheaper but has similar features.

Hario V60- Dripper coffee makers

Drippers or decanters are another of Hario’s great specialities, although we are not very used to using them. However, in Japan and America, they are standard practice in many homes.

A Dripper coffee maker would be the equivalent of a filter coffee maker, but 100% manual, with no electronics. There are also called coffee decanters; due to the filtering mode they use.

In this segment, the absolute star is the Hario V60. It is sold in various formats and materials, with lots of accessories, filters, holders, etc. There is a whole range of products around the Hario V60, so choose the one that best suits your needs, and… experiment!

Hario Cold Brew coffee makers

Given the undisguised international focus of Hario coffee makers, and the growing interest in cold processing methods, it was inevitable that the Japanese firm would include a Cold Brew coffee maker in its catalogue.

Well it’s not one but several. For example, the Hario Mizudashi model can brew up to 600 ml of Cold Brew coffee, while the Hario VIC02B is slightly larger and includes other accessories.

However, if you’re one of those who needs to prepare coffee in large quantities, or you like to keep it in the fridge for later, then you might want to go for the 1-litre cold brewer.

As you can see, there is no lack of options here, so choose the size that best suits your needs because the coffee will come out similar in all of them.

Hario Piston Coffee Maker

In conclusion, we review the French press Hario. Piston coffee machines, although not in the majority, do have an absolute acceptance on the Internet, and in the case of a firm like Hario -specialized in the manufacture of glass- it was inevitable that they would include it in their catalogue.

This Hario piston coffee maker (named Hario Slims) is 240 ml. (it’s not too big, you’ll get two cups with it at most) and stands out in two ways:

  • Its design: groundbreaking and beautiful, with inscriptions on the bowl relating to the world of coffee. There is no plastic or steel element beyond the stainless-steel lid. The entire cup, including the handle, is 100% borosilicate glass.
  • The quality of the glass: Hario’s true hallmark. It could not be otherwise. You can feel it: much thicker and more robust than usual.

The dimensions of the Hario Slim S plunger coffee maker are 11.3 x 7.8 x 17.2 cm, and it is dishwasher safe.

Is it worth it to buy a Hario coffee maker?

If you are a regular user or practitioner of any of the coffee processing methods mentioned during this guide, without a doubt, the best option you’ll find our Hario coffee maker. The other alternative will be, almost always, to resort to imported shops, with the risk that this entails.

Hario coffee machines are a standard in the world coffee sector thanks to the exceptional quality of their glass (something extensive to all the products that this company commercializes).

It’s true that on the Internet, Hario coffee grinders are sold much more than coffee makers. Still, if you want to go a bit further than the classic espresso or capsules here you have a lot of quality options and at prices that are almost always affordable. Mainly because, although the materials are exceptional, the absence of electronic components makes the prices of all coffee makers quite cheap.
