Flick the switch for fantastic drip coffee

The Hario Immersion Dripper SWITCH combines immersion and percolation to give you the best of both worlds. It is a trusty coffee dripper that enables anyone to brew a robust cup of coffee, without worrying about getting a muddy layer of coffee grounds in the cup. The magic — a valve that closes while the coffee steeps, and opens when you flick the switch. You can even use the SWITCH as a V60 for a pour over coffee by keeping the valve released. Follow this super easy recipe for your daily coffee fix!

Brew with immersion dripper SWITCH


Immersion dripper coffee tips

  • Adjust serving as desired, at coffee to water ratio of 1:16.
  • Use medium grind size. We recommend the following grind sizes:
      • 4 to 5 notches for Hario Skerton +
      • 11 to 12 for Baratza Encore 
  • For filter roast, brew with hot water just off the boil. For espresso roast, allow hot water to cool for 3 to 5 mins before brewing.
  • This recipe is also applicable to the Clever Dripper. Try it!
