Hasami Porcelain Teapot

Not only does this Hasami Porcelain Teapot have a classically modern shape, it shares the same diameter as other pieces in the Hasami Porcelain collection, which allows for easy transport and stacking. That’s not only beneficial for your cabinet space, but it also makes for an efficient and aesthetically pleasing tablescape. Crafted from a custom blend of clay and porcelain, the surface is softer to the touch than traditional porcelain. Available from the Dwell Store for $55 for a limited time.

EM77 Vacuum Jug

Lukewarm coffee is just not acceptable, and this EM77 Vacuum Jug will ensure hot coffee stays hot. When tipped, the rocker stopper automatically opens to let coffee flow out- this limits the amount air entering the jug, thus preventing your coffee from cooling prematurely. You can use the EM77 Vacuum Jug to keep beverages cold as well, so don’t put it in the back of the cupboard when spring comes around.

Push Coffee Maker by Muuto

Mette Duedahl’s Push Coffee Maker is made of a warm grey stoneware in a rounded shape, which seems a little friendlier to touch and hold than the normal glass carafes used in most households. You’ll find the plunger is made of steel, so no worries as to the durability of daily use, and the lid is clear plastic, allowing you to check the progress of the brew. Duedahl’s Coffee Mugs look to be excellent companions to the Push Coffee Maker; I’ll keep my eyes out for a North American retailer.

Using the pour-over method, this carafe set brews the coffee slowly, forcing you to slow down and add water bit by bit.

Wilfa Precision Coffee Maker

You might think this coffee maker looks like a chemistry experiment, and that’s entirely understandable due to its beaker-like tank. Any avid coffee fan knows that it takes a precise temperature and water control to create the perfect cup, and this automatic filter brewer is made for a professional barista’s exactitude*. It also looks pretty cool in action, as heated water (of an optimal 197ºF–205ºF temperature, as recommended by the SCAA) is extracted from the water tank and pumped into the double-wall filter holder. Watch it in action on the retailer’s site to see the full effect.

Spoonless Container

No spoon needed with this container. Just remove the cork lid from the small spout and pour. What will you store in it? Up to you, of course, but all sorts of things would work. Dry goods like loose leaf tea, rice, or sugar perhaps? Use it in the kitchen for oft-used ingredients or on the table for serving. In either case, the containers are pretty enough to be left out for all to see.

Rok Hand-powered Espresso Machine

The perfect cup of espresso is hard to replicate at home unless you want to plonk down several hundred (or thousand) dollars.

It’s also portable, which opens up the options for just where you’ll enjoy a cup of caffeinated loveliness. You’ll need a good espresso grind, some hot water, and your muscles.

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.
