Founded in 1921 in Tokyo, the company sold and produced physical and chemical use glass products. After 30 years of intensive research, the company produced Hario glass. The glass produced is made environmentally friendly and heatproof. In 1949 Hario launched their first home product, the glass filter coffee syphon. The coffee syphon is lined with a filter where you then add coffee grounds too. Boiling water is poured on the coffee, seeping into a separate chamber. The coffee stored there is ready to be enjoyed.
