In a world where everything is digitized and app controlled, it’s a breath of fresh air to see a product that shines not because of its high-tech features, but because of its lack of them.

The Manual Coffeemaker does just that.

Extremely simple in its design and function, The Manual Coffeemaker won’t make espresso with the pull of a lever, it wont make you a latte at the push of a button; it makes coffee, plainly and simply. Drawing on craft coffee manual pour-over machines, The Manual Coffee maker, or MCM, is a “pour-over coffee maker that lives on the counter top in a home or office, like a low-tech appliance”. There is no magical science behind the coffee maker, instead, you just pour hot water through fresh coffee grinds in a filter, and let the brewed coffee slowly drip into the carafe or directly into a mug.

The Manual Coffeemaker was successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign, and those interested can pre-order their own beautiful glass coffee brewer for a mere $80.00. As the makers of the carafe explain, The Manual Coffeemaker is special, if only because “in a world ever focused on speed and convenience, the act of preparing coffee manually and by-the-cup is a chance to really slow down and enjoy the moment. As you master a manual brewing method, the ritual of preparing coffee becomes just as pleasurable as drinking it”.


And really, what more than you expect from a machine that was “designed to celebrate this ritual of daily craft through a considered experience, a thoughtful interaction, and an understated design.”
