Tea Coffee

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.

Ora Teapot and Tea Cup Set

The same guy responsible for the x3 Watering Can, Paul Loebach, designed this double-walled glass teapot. There’s no need for a handle, as the insulating outer glass wall never gets too hot to handle. Hold, carry, and pour your tea with ease. To complete the set, add the Ora Tea Cups to the mix. (Note: the teapot and cup set would make a nice gift for certain upcoming events.)

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. And that’s exactly why some of our tastebuds will perk up when seeing the Rok Espresso Maker. It’s completely hand-powered. 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. And maybe some practice. That’s it. Sounds encouraging for the non-expert, doesn’t it? See the video below for more.

Brew for one or use the Gino Server for two or more.

Sucabaruca Memphis “Pop” Coffee Service

You better act fast if this coffe service set makes your heart beat faster, as only 10 editions exist. That kind of limited availability halfway explains the price, and once you add in the vibrant, hand mixed color pigments, it makes complete sense. Made by porcelain artist Alissa Coe, the set includes a wood gift box and a small book about the production process of Sucabaruca.

EM Press Coffee Maker

Did you know Erik Magnussen’s Stelton Vacuum Jug was designed way back in 1977? Or that the very recognizable shape is now available as a coffee press? Brew your coffee and keep it hot for hours, all in the retro-cool iconic thermos. The EM Press brews up to 8 cups, and has the same simple open-close mechanism of the Stelton Jug.

Teaball Teapot

As a self-proclaimed tea junkie, it’s difficult to describe just how important certain tools in the tea making process can be. If you’re dealing in loose tea, some infusers can be irritating in that they’re hard to clean, and, if they’re hard to clean, you’ll probably get fed up and not use them anymore (which is the case with several infusers in my top kitchen drawer at the moment). Now, this Teaball Teapot is easy to clean- it has a removable stainless steel infuser- but it also looks extremely nice to hold and use, and I’d say that’s almost as (if not more?) important.

Arne Jacobsen espresso cups

All you Arne Jacobsen fans should be drinking out of these espresso cups, numbered 1-4 to accompany the regular letter cups, when you have your hit of caffeine. And you thought your kitchen cupboard could hold no more Bauhaus inspired typography, well, happy days, you were wrong. These cups are small enough to work as tealight holders too, fyi.

Core Coffee Press

You’re not likely to part with your coffee press, especially if you use it everyday, but just in case the one you have isn’t operating to the best of its abilities, you’ll want to know about the Core Coffee Press. Designed by Rivers of Japan, it consists of a heat-resistant glass beaker and stainless steel mesh press (no paper filter needed). The outer holder protects your hands from the hot glass/water and minimizes the visual mess often found in more traditional coffee making paraphernalia.

Normann Copenhagen Tea Strainer

This tea strainer has a flexible silicone body that fits any cup, mug or teapot. The hat-like funnel top retains heat and flavor while your tea is brewing; simply remove the strainer with a built-in handle (no burnt fingers) and fold the silicone top down/up like the brim of a hat to prevent spills or errant drops. Smart!

Menu Kettle Thermo Jug

With the weather being so damn cold, there’s never too many mentions of anything that will keep you warm. And, goodness, a lukewarm cup of coffee or tea is just not acceptable when your fingers or toes are freezing, especially when an appropriate receptacle can keep liquids piping hot for hours. This Menu Kettle Thermo Jug by Norm Architects keeps contents hot for very long period of time: “a beverage at a temperature of 203°F will, after 6 hours in a full jug in a 75°F room, still be 172°F hot.” Impressive, yes? (Especially in a very long/boring meeting, when all that’s keeping you awake is caffiene.)

Ciacapo Teapot

It’s coooold out, so how about a hot cup of tea? You might have seen several cast-iron teapots, as they aren’t too hard to find, especially considering all the variations on the traditional Japanese cast-iron pot. However, this Ciacapo fella is something surprising with its bold silhouette. Yep, it’s cast iron, so it will keep your team warm for hours (multiple cups at your desk, anyone?) and, for bonus points, it’s heavy enough to use as a door stop- if for some reason you need to use it as such. Expertly crafted, it’s more than fit for a modern kitchen and will last through years of casual, everyday use.
