Everybody wants the perfect cup of coffee.
But few people know how to make it better than Nicholas Cho, co-founder of Wrecking Ball.
When he launches a jave-related product, we pay attention — which is why today, we bring news of his one crucial coffee-making implement. And it's cheap: $40 for early-bird delivery.
It's called the December Dripper.
Pro-level drinkers, some details. Cho and his Seoul-based partner were inspired by flat-bottomed commercial brewers like the Kalita Wave (in fact, the December Dripper uses Kalita filters). But their dripper has something special: a flat bottom with a 12-hole variable aperture. This allows even mixing (of water and coffee) and control of the speed and flow rate. (This is also aided with the addition of a pouring kettle — not included, not required, but advised.)
This is no coffee-category vaporware: it's already in production and available commercially in South Korea, where each piece is individually handcrafted by metalworkers.
Enthusiasts will find even more details here.
Consider it a #holygrailkickstarter for 2017.
