Ratio Eight Percolator
“Coffee should be enjoyed…it is one of the daily pleasures of our lives.” So believe the makers of the Ratio Eight coffee maker; with just one button and three phases – bloom, brew, and ready – the simple gadget times the bloom and calculates the ideal ratio of water to grounds for the best (and easiest) cup of joe. Die-cast aluminum heats the water to about 202 degrees Farenheit for an ideal brew before sending it through a stainless steel shower head that distributes it evenly over the grounds. Not to mention the clean curvilinear form alone is enough to accentuate and elevate any kitchen or office space. Each stunning machine – available in champagne nickel, bright silver, or dark cobalt — can brew up to 40 ounces of rich, steaming coffee. Hand assembled in (you guessed it) Portland, the graceful wood and metal percolator adds a dash of elegance to the everyday.

Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur
This outstanding coffee liqueur is much more than a standard bottle of Kahlua; it’s “a unique drop that embodies Australia’s progressive coffee culture and [their] unrelenting pursuit of steel ground, cold extracted, caffeinated perfection.” The drink from down under is made from a blend of pure Australian grain spirit and three specialty coffees, which results in an ink black, bitter nectar with a sweet finish and notes of java throughout. Best enjoyed in cocktails…or straight up. Mr. Black is not for the faint of heart.

The White Ash Edition, a stunningly simple form that accentuates its material, is the best introduction to Canadiano’s refined collection. Keep in mind that this particular wood works best for light and medium roasts, while The Cherry Edition is a better fit for darker roasts. This “personal” brewing experience goes truly unmatched; you can’t do much better for the coffee connoisseur in your life.
