here!What does it take to concoct the perfect cup of coffee at home? According to my husband, Perry, it’s a high-end espresso machine. According to me, a French press. After years of debating we seemed destined to remain at loggerheads—until we discovered the
Pure Over.The Pure Over is a coffee maker that straddles the line between a pour-over in function and a French press in flavor. Made entirely of glass and as functional as it is beautiful, it requires no pods or filters and is composed of four pieces—a mug, a dripper, a diffuser lid, and a coaster. Place the dripper on top of the mug, fill it with medium-ground coffee beans, and then place the diffuser lid on top of the dripper. As you slowly pour boiling water into the lid, its holes regulate the speed at which the water rains into the dripper chamber below, evenly saturating the coffee. The grounds themselves act as a filter, no paper needed. The setup yields the sort of cup that tastes as high-end as my husband likes and as accessible as I have time to make while pregnant with a toddler at home. headtopics.com
The Pure Over is the brainchild of 32-year-old glass artist and java expertEtai Rahmil. After running out of paper filters while in his glass blowing shop in Portland, Oregon, he decided to create a novel brewing method that would forever eliminate the need for traditional filters—which, he argues, also prevent natural oils from dripping into the cup. Rahmil works with borosilicate, a specific type of glass that is also used in the medical field and can withstand drastic temperature changes without breaking. “The glass is a natural heat insulator that will help keep the drink at optimal temperature for longer,” he explains. Bonus points: It’s easily cleanable and can even be thrown into the dishwasher.
According to Rahmil, it takes1.5 million treesto make the 275 billion coffee filters produced every year, and the average coffee drinker discards 25,000 filters at a cost of $6,500 in his or her lifetime. So not only does the Pour Over deliver a bold and convenient cup of coffee, it also makes me feel like I’m doing my part for the planet—and yes, my husband agrees.Read more: Bon Appétit »
