Drawing on their kissaten coffee shop culture, Japan has risen to become one of the coffee capitals of the world. And it’s in these hole-in-the-wall shops where slow coffee culture evolved. Coffee brewing was always ceremonious – coffee grounds were weighed and ground while cups were warmed – and never something to be rushed.
“I understand that some of you are put off by proselytizing — you want coffee, not a sermon” said food writer Oliver Strand. “But where others perceive smugness and superiority, I see enthusiasm and curiosity,” and for those in the latter camp, a new pour-over coffee brewing set wants to deliver.
Developed by Japanese tableware brand Kinto is the Slow Coffee Brewer Stand Set. It’s a unique coffee brewing tool inspired by the passion of craftsmen. The set came together by seeking the best materials and thoughtfully crafting them to create a distinguished pour-over coffee brewer.
The Brewer Stand combines a deep walnut wood with brass that will age beautifully. And it’s all pulled together by transparent, heat-resistant glass that lets you closely observe the dripping process. Minimal dots on the side of the server let you measure the amount of coffee made. It also comes with a glass measuring cup for beans, which doubles as a holder for the brewer and filter once you’re done making coffee.
