Even the simplicity of French presses and Chemex brewers can’t touch the minimalism of the Canadiano, a single-serving coffee brewing device made of wood. The whole thing is the size of a few stacked drink coasters and features a removable metal filter.
Fitting over a standard mug, the Canadiano is available in a choice of cherry, walnut or maple wood. In the core is a series of carved concentric circles creating a bowl shape that holds the brewing coffee as it seeps through the filter.
According to the designers, the wood will ‘remember’ your choice of coffee. “Overtime the coffee oils of your specific beans and roast will be absorbed into the wood and be a part of your morning coffee experience. Each type of wood is matched with different beans and roasts from around the world. We encourage brewing single origin beans in the Canadianos.”
“The walnut edition is crafted and designed for use with darker roasts and earthier flavors such as beans from South East Asia. Maple and Cherry is designed for beans with slight citrus hints and nut taste.”
