When I first saw the headline, I was skeptical.
This May be the Best-Designed Drip Coffee Maker Ever!
To be clear, I am a french press guy. Have been for decades. Every now and then I pull out my espresso maker. But pressed coffee won me over long ago. And I never bought into the electric drip machines. Which is surprising, since I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets.
But perhaps it was because the drip coffee machines I have tried were not properly designed! Perhaps it was because they were not … adjustable!
Unlike other drip coffee makers, the contraption has three settings that control the speed with which water is released into the mug. Nicholas Cho, one of the designers of the December Dripper, explains in his Kickstarter video that how fast or slow water is let out from the maker depends on how many cups of coffee you’re making. Too fast for one cup and you won’t get the full flavor of the roast. The maker was also specifically made to have a flat bottom to encourage even distribution of water over the grounds.
Of course! Will I join their kickstarter campaign? Stay tuned.
