Video: The Coffee Foundry in NYC

Posted on February 19, 2011 by

“Everything about The Coffee Foundry – from the small-batch backyard roasting to the methodical coffee preparation – probably seems inefficient to the average on-the-go city dweller. Yet these perceived limitations are exactly what allow co-founders Wilson Park and Norman Mui to hold total control over the experience they offer. Although they’ve been working to perfect […]

This is a stainless steel Aeropress filter manufactured by Coava Coffee Able Brewing. You could say that it’s a companion piece to their stainless steel Kone, but so far the results stand completely on their own. My very first Aeropress (using Coava’s Costa Rica Helsar and Ben’s inverted method) yielded surprising clarity and sweetness. Surprising because I assumed that […]
