This Japanese company has been dedicated to the design, production, and sale of heatproof glass since it was founded in 1921. The company began as a manufacturer of laboratory glassware. In 1948, production was expanded to include household items, starting with the coffee syphon.
When Japan’s specialty coffee industry began to boom, Hario started to develop and produce manual coffee-brewing equipment. The simple designs ensured that Hario quickly became the leading brand in the coffee industry world-wide.
Hario is the hand-brewing equipment manufacturer of choice for baristas and coffee roasters alike. Their pour-over equipment is elegant, affordable and produces perfect coffee. When the Aurora International Taste Challenge started their Coffee Roasting Awards, Hario were the obvious and best partner to get on board.
