Coffee Dripper Cave Reversible
Two drip patterns in one dripper.
The cave reversible for true coffee fanatics.
The innovative CAVE REVERSIBLE coffee dripper attracted the attention of numerous coffee people in 2017 when it was displayed as a reference exhibit at the World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition which is Japan’s largest specialty coffee event held by the Specialty Coffee Association of Japan (SCAJ).
An executive from a major corporation asked if we had patented the design and
a champion barista from overseas passionately discussed their desire to use it.
The event always overflows with coffee people, but the people that visited our booth seemed even more ardent than usual.
This product is truly for the fanatic — to the point that we’re worried about whether it will even sell well.
Let’s look at the CAVE REVERSIBLE in depth.
What is the cave?
The CAVE is a conical coffee dripper developed by Rivers.
It is notable for having a fairly narrow center angle of 50°.
This sharp conical shape results in a thick accumulation of coffee beans,
allowing the hot water to truly seep through the coffee grounds while brewing.
This design has been well received and is highly praised by many baristas.
The CAVE REVERSIBLE is a silicone dripper that keeps the same 50° conical shape of the CAVE but has two different rib patterns, one on each side.
The body is made of soft rubber, making it easily reversible.
This provides its greatest feature, the ability to brew coffee using the ribs that are best suited to the coffee beans being used.
What are ribs?
How much do you know about the ribs on the insides of drippers?
If you look at the drippers on the market, you’ll find long ribs and short ribs, spiral ribs and straight ribs. These rib designs have a major impact on the flavor of coffee each company aims to achieve.
The purpose of the ribs is to create spaces between the filter paper and the dripper, controlling the flow of hot water. The flow of the hot water that has soaked in the coffee beans has a major influence on the flavor of the coffee.
