Tea Coffee

Kinto Brewer Stand Set

Another brewing stand for coffee? I know, I’m getting a little tired of seeing them everywhere too, but they’re just so darn appealing. Kinto’s Brewer Stand set includes a heat-resistant glass holder, server, and brewer along with a stainless steel (with tin coating) filter and walnut stand. Would it be crazy to use it as a vase when not brewing coffee? Hmm.

Serax Lovatt Coffee Cups

Don’t these Serax Lovatt cups look like they’d be nice to hold? A complete set of the black and white glazed ceramics wouldn’t do any harm left out on an open shelf for all to see, so there’s at least a couple of reasons to consider adding a few cups (and maybe the teapot) to your collection.

Slow Brew Iced Tea Maker

Slow brewed tea sounds slightly pretentious, I know, but this little guy makes it look super easy and worth a try. After all, summer is almost here, right? Apparently cold-brewed tea is less bitter and astringent, just like cold-brewed coffee. A double-walled, clear infuser lets you keep an eye on the color while also keeping the tea’s temperature stable. You can even try cold-brewing coffee in it, as the retailer notes.

Tea Kettle By NORM Architects

This tea kettle/pot by NORM Architects has a built in steeper that is secured to the top lid when brewing is finished, making the process tidy and efficient. Plus, as the teapot is glass, you can see the brewing process and stop it once the shade is exactly to your liking- especially useful for those of us that are particular about tea. Pair it with the tealight heater to keep the tea warm.

Cha Kettle Teapot

How many kettles look like they belong on a tablecloth amongst finger sandwiches and scones? Not too many. The stainless steel Cha Teapot was designed by Naoto Fukasawa- that’s worth mentioning, of course- and has a magnetic steel bottom that makes it suitable for induction cooking. A simple curved handle and knob in black thermoplastic resin completes the design.

Weaver Tea Jar and Infuser set

A good tea canister and infuser can make all the difference in making a cup of tea. Hot water and tea may be the ingredients, but the whole process is enjoyed all the more with elegant tools. This copper Weaver Tea Jar by Toast Living will hold your leaves in pride of place while the small infuser will make brewing a special event with a stainless steel basket and a terra-cotta lid. Note: It looks like the Tea Jar is out of stock, but the little infuser is available.

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.

Piippu Pot

The Piippu Pot by Kaksikko looks a like a distant relative of the Svante Watering Can, no? Its shape and side handle reference traditional tea service, yet the addition of the filter holder makes it suitable for coffee as well.

Duo Coffee Steeper

More coffee paraphernalia for your consideration… The Duo Coffee Steeper features two chambers to produce the the richness of immersion brewing but with a cleaner taste. Your hot water and coffee steeps in the upper chamber, then once your brew reaches the right strength, you twist the silicone center to let it flow through 2 stainless steel filters into the lower carafe. Twist it again and you’ve locked the chamber for pouring from the spout. Pretty easy, and relatively compact- it may even be a good option to bring with you on your travels, if you’re picky about your coffee.

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. Now on sale.

Pour-Over Stand

Will you look like a mad scientist when brewing your coffee with this Pour-over Stand? I certainly hope so, as the process is completely on show, and there will be plenty of opportunities to wiggle your eyebrows and laugh maniacally when the coffee is ready for serving. The lab style brass stand holds a Hario V60 glass pour over (included) that adjusts for mugs or decanters. An American walnut base contrasts nicely.
