While coffee shops and Keurig machines offer a quick caffeine fix, the most devoted coffee connoisseurs tend to gravitate towards a slow brewed cup. Created by Francis Cayouette for Danish design group Stelton, the Theo coffee maker aims to satisfy the most refined tastes – in every sense. The simple slow brew method draws out an incredibly flavorful drink through an elegant, minimal form – though three holes in the filter funnel actually diminish the “slow” brew time. Made from black stoneware with a matte and shine finish, the reduced piece makes the same bold accent as a strong cup of joe. A bamboo lid keeps warm up to 0.6 L of coffee – enough for 1 or 2 people – while heat insulating silicone makes it easy to avoid spills and burns while pouring. The Theo line brings a dose of style to the everyday through a pure, restrained approach; a modern way to brew a classic cup. It comes as no surprise that the chic product was the winner of this year’s iF design award.
