Cold Bruer Coffee Brewer

If you thought cold coffee was for snobs or sugar junkies, think again. Cold brew coffee is often less acidic and less bitter than hot brewed coffee, and more palatable with milk. Using a slow-drip process with an adjustable valve, the Cold Bruer Coffee Brewer lets you play around with brew time to get your ideal cup. However, don’t think you’ll pull this sort of cold brewing off in a quick minute; the recommended brew time is a 6-hour span, at a drip per second.

Fluted Talise Carafe

Water is a necessity, but nowadays too many of us rely on plastic bottles to get our daily intake. Perhaps by purchasing this very nice Talise carafe, you’ll cut down the amount of plastic you use and thus become a more responsible adult. Unending supplies of water and other beverages may be kept in its lovely fluted design, which looks so much more appropriate on a dinner (or conference) table than a six pack of plastic bottles. Use the inner funnel to hold a water filter, if needed, or remove entirely for non-filtered beverages.
