Tea Coffee

Tube Coffee Set

I love the look of matte ceramic.

“Designed by the boys at Vast Design in Greece, fired in Portugal where artisans have been producing hard-wearing ceramics from the local clay for hundreds of years, this set (coffee pot, milk jug and sugar) sits on a wooden base (indentations keep the pieces secure). Careful attention to details of form and proportion give the set a stylish retro/modern feel. Available in matte white or black”

Currently on backorder. sorry.

The Tea Stick

I first read about this last year in METROPOLIS magazine, and knew it would be the perfect holiday gift for my good friend who drinks loose tea quite often. A few weeks into the new year, my friend confided that it was their favorite gift and that they use it everyday! For under $25, I don’t think you could go wrong if you have any tea drinkers on your gift list.

“The ultimate infuser for tea enthusiasts features intuitive “scoop-slide-steep” functionality while it reflects the aesthetic of traditional loose tea service. Durable enough for industrial use, it has no breakable mechanisms and is constructed entirely of 304L stainless steel with holes small enough to infuse the finest of teas. The innovative design provides optimum flow for perfect steeping and incorporates a fill-line. The Teastick fits nicely into glasses and mugs and is ideal for a 10-14 oz perfect cup of tea.”

Frieling Thermal French Press

My ever evolving taste buds now require a stronger cup of Joe, so in my search for the perfect brew, I discovered what all the fuss over french press coffee was about…flavor. My big, clunky coffee maker now has a permanent home deep in a bottom cabinet, while this sleek beauty rests atop my counter taking up precious little space. There are many presses to choose from, but most are glass, which doesn’t keep your coffee hot for very long. This stainless steel press is double-walled for insulation, keeping it hot for hours. With no need for electricity, simple use and superior taste, I highly recommend a change in your morning routine.

Two sizes available:
Small press, 4-cup (20-fl.-oz.) $49.95
Large press, 8-cup (40-fl.-oz.) $64.95

warm walnut mugs

What a nice alternative to the ordinary paper cup and sleeve…

“The concept behind Warm, the contemporary set of teacups and teapots designed by Tony Alfström and Brian Keaney, should be immediately apparent to anyone who has used a paper collar with their coffee takeout. Here the collar is a bracelet of laminated wood, molded from oak or walnut, wrapped around a detachable ceramic container. The collar functions both as insulator and handle, and elevates the cup or pot high enough to preclude the need for a coaster. The cups are available in tea and coffee services…All ceramic parts are oven, microwave and dishwasher proof. ”
