Coffee isn’t a habit for me. It’s a ritual that I enjoy lending all my senses to. Yes, it’s about flavor, but it’s also because of the impact it has on consciousness when used deliberately and in the right balance.
It’s so exciting to have found this coffee maker while on a buying trip for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. It’s made with such finely crafted glass and steel. I can boil water on the stove, let it cool to just the right temperature, and then pour it over the beans to extract a pure, full-bodied brew. It is elegant simplicity - no machinery or electricity - that creates an aura around the morning meditation over coffee and is gorgeous to watch.
It’s not up on the Museum Store’s website - if you’re interested, message me and I can help you get a hold of one.
