We weren't sure until we saw the Fellow Stagg EKG of course! This kettle is not only incredibly functional but also looks beautiful in your brewing setup thanks to its modern minimalist design. We can see why it's award-winning and loved so much by so many.

We've tested lots of pour-over kettles and have often found a compromise between design and functionality but the Fellow Stagg EKG really hits the nail on the head, offering great looks and top-notch performance.

Putting the Fellow Stagg EKG to the test - is this the pour over kettle perfected?

We put the Fellow Stagg EKG through its paces to see if it is the best pour-over kettle on the market and here's what we thought:

When you first remove the Fellow Stagg EKG from its packaging you can feel the exceptional build quality. We were impressed at how they'd carefully crafted the stunning design yet solid feel whilst keeping the overall weight down. 

When filling the kettle, we had no complaints, the lid removes easily and you can fill it to around 0.9L which isn't a huge amount of capacity but it's good for 3-4 cups or 2-3 good-sized mugs.

For our boil test, we filled the kettle to around halfway with 0.45L of water and began boiling water to our preferred setting of 96°C - a perfect temperature for pour-over coffee. It took around 2 minutes 45 seconds to reach this desired temperature which wasn't bad although not a blazing fast heat time. What really impressed us though was the magic of the Fellow Stagg EKG's ability to maintain that temperature. With the HOLD mode activated, we saw very little fluctuation in the desired temperature throughout the whole 60-minute period.

There appears to be a clever use of materials and coatings to help maintain that desired temperature and regulate the impact of environmental temperatures around the kettle which is pretty impressive. It all helps to maintain ultimate control over what matters most from this kettle - its ability to hold the heat.

After reaching the optimum temperature of 96°C we went ahead and started pouring. The flow rate of the gooseneck spout was impressively controllable. Whether it's a drip or a steady flow you're able to control the rate at which you pour water to a tee. The flow is somewhat limited when you want a 'fast pour' but given the capacity of the kettle and its purpose, we think it's quite good. 

With a steady flow of water, we found brewing with a ceramic V60 dripper a breeze! You can really saturate the coffee grounds and then let the water drain away evenly which makes for a ridiculously good cup! The built-in brew stopwatch takes the guesswork out of perfection so you'll be a coffee aficionado in no time!

There's a worm in my kettle!

Yep, you heard us right! There really is a worm in there, although luckily it's not something you'd find in the garden. Fellow have injected a little fun into the process of watching water boil with a game called 'Wormy' that's reminiscent of the 90's mobile game 'Snake'. You can activate this hidden little easter egg by following the instructions below. Be warned though! It's incredibly addictive and can result in some pretty lengthy brew times!

Activate Wormy mode: 

- Turn on your kettle on

- Take your kettle off the base

- Toggle the F/C switch back and forth

- When Wormy appears on the screen, use the dial as your joystick. 

Deactivate Wormy mode: 

- Press and hold the 'HOLD' button for five seconds

- The display will show 'Wormy Mode Off'
