MOLD’s weekly roundup of food design stories from around the web.
Manual Coffee Maker, Craighton Berman
One of our favorite designs spotted at last year’s ICFF, Chicago-based designer Craighton Berman created this elegant double-walled glass pour over coffee maker that lets the most ardent coffee lovers watch the magic happen. Bonus!! We love Craighton’s designerly take on the coffee blog, overextracted.
Pour Mason, Intelligent Design Company
Constructed of 18-gauge aluminum alloy and finished with electroless nickel, this screw top accessory fits perfectly on that 12 ounce mason jar and brews coffee straight into the glass. Fast Co says that it’s a “hipster’s dream” and the designers claim that the Pour Mason will go head-to-head with your Chemex but watch the video and judge for yourself. $35
Like a good cast iron pan, the wood in this beautiful pour over accessory from Toronto-based Fishtnk is seasoned with the oils of all those cups of coffee past, bringing out the flavors for that cup of coffee, present. “The Walnut edition is crafted and designed for use with darker roasts and earthier flavors such as beans from South East Asia. Maple and Cherry is designed for beans with slight citrus hints and nutty taste.” Our friends at Core77 say the device is “freaking awesome” and we love this fun video for the Canadiano, below. C$45-65
Woman buried in Costa Coffee-themed Coffin
We’ve seen our fair share of luxury coffins shaped like Nikes,Coke Bottles and fruits. A 51-year-old British woman who “really loved coffee” had a coffee-themed burial with the logo of British coffee retailer Costa Coffee on one side and the phrase, ‘One shot, extra hot skinny latte,’ printed on the other.
