Wrecking Ball coffee had a good vid and should be a stockist. I'm in the UK so can't really help much with suppliers. G&B coffee in LA also use the Kalita and it's largely their technique I try to recreate.

There is unfortunately not a universal grind for all the different pour overs. My technique for the Kalita is to use a coarse press pot grind ~900microns which probably corresponds to 22-23 on a Baratza Virtuoso.

I use 34g of coffee to 578g water ( standard 17:1 ratio) I aim for the water to finish draining at the 4 minute mark  (this includes the 30s "bloom").

The coffee is by no means weak, coarser grind requires longer contact time so you need a decent kettle to slow the pour to allow for 4 mins of contact time.

I think this replicates the brew cycle of good drip coffee makers but with a smaller volume of brew. I don't want a litre of coffee basically.

How much water in ozs is 578 g?

Where can you buy the Kalita, especially the "system". Seems out of stock at a lot of places?

Check the Wreckingball Coffee webside, there is a cafe that sells their coffee in Oakland that has them. Call first though before you make the drive!

 
Less water, more grounds.

How fine of a grind do you use for a (Kalita) pour over?

The Kalita is the best pourover device for single cups, in my opinion. The slow drip and control is unmatched. I personally use a Clever/Kone combo at home for my everyday use; the valve on the Celver allows me to control the infusion better. For professional use, I would use the porcelain V60, just for the ability to retain heat best.
