“Kahva” Coffee Maker

Cofee making magic

I remember hearing as a child a quote that is most often attributed to Sir Isaac Newton; “what goes up. must come down…” Newton may not have said those very words, but his simple premise should be enough to debunk the black magic involved with this gravity defying coffee maker by Lina Fischer. In clear violation of the laws of gravity, this bean brewer seems to lift the boiling water up into its ceiling and magically dispense hot, life affirming black magic to an awed audiences. The “Kahva” has a clean hour glass silhouette and reminds us that all good things come in time and through dark-arts sorcery…

Designer: Lina Fischer

How to use it:

1. Fill the double-coated glass container with water and put the desired amount of coffee into the upper brewing unit.

2. Bring the water to boil by using the induction powered table station or any other heating device.

3. Watch the hot water flowing upwards into the brewing unit due to the rising air-pressure. Listen to the bubbling noise and smell the aroma of coffee. Let it brew for a few minutes.

4. Switch of the heating device and watch the brewed coffee emerge in the glass container, quickly drawn back through a filter by a vacuum witch has been created by the cooling.

5. Open Kahva by turning the grip and pour some fully aromatic, mocha-style coffee directly into your cup. Enjoy!
