V60 Who?: Hario began as an eco-friendly heat-proof glass manufacturer in Japan in 1921. With a focus on in-house development, Hario introduced many coffee innovations, including the Syphon, Slow Drip, and its iconic V60. In the 1980s, Hario's designers created a parabolic-shaped dripper for a cleaner-tasting cup. Despite initial setbacks due to the popularity of instant coffee, the V60 eventually became a beloved tool among coffee enthusiasts.
