Letter From James

At The Kissaten

When I first traveled to Japan, I began to frequent kissaten. These small places, often tucked away, are made for the simple purpose of enjoying extraordinary coffee. The barista grinds and prepares one cup at a time.

It is awe-inspiring that such attention is just for you, and just for one cup of coffee. My favorite kissaten, Chatei Hatou, is like entering a silent concert hall—calm yet full of potential. Whether we call it omotenashi, as we do in Japan, or “hospitality,” as we do in the U.S., it’s not just the barista’s expertise that makes a place count. It’s the way people are treated.

Omotenashi captures an ideal we’ve long aspired to, anticipating the needs of others. We hope that every detail at Blue Bottle Coffee, from the countertops to the blue straws to the bag hooks to the smiles of our baristas, makes you feel taken care of.

Blue Bottle + Kinto

Ready For You

Our collaboration with Kinto began when we purchased a mere three cups from the Japanese company for one of our Tokyo cafes. We were so enamored with the quality that we decided to work together to make a custom carafe for our shops. We refined the dimensions and the height until we got it just right. And now, we’re offering this carafe for use in your home. It’s the same carafe that’s on the bar at every Blue Bottle in the U.S. and Tokyo. Once dripped, we recommend serving it in Kinto’s rounded mugs with maple wood saucers. They’re a pleasure to hold.

Blue Bottle Coffee Dripper

DESIGNED FOR YOU

We knew there could be a better dripper. But we couldn’t find one anywhere.
So we designed our own.

In collaboration with MIT-trained researchers, we created a proprietary design—forty interior ridges, a flat bed, and a 4-mm nozzle—that tells the coffee precisely where and how to flow for the ideal extraction and the most delicious cup. We based our method on the capillary system found in nature, like the way a tree transports water from its roots to its leaves.

Blue Bottle Coffee Dripper
The dripper is made at the family-owned Kyuemon ceramics factory in Arita, Japan. Its lightweight ceramic requires no pre-warming, and the custom filters, made with bamboo, require no pre-wetting or folding.

I was moved by how the hot water, like a piece of thread, fell shimmering down the narrow spout…
