The recent trend towards automated single serve pod based coffee is really for the people who don’t actually like coffee. Coffee is an experience that needs to be carefully performed and should result in joy in the process. The Duo Coffee Steeper brings all the convenice of a single serve system (or up to 4 cups) but in a way that’s far more ‘real’ to the process. You add in your grinds, you add in your water and then you wiat for the coffee to steep. After a bit, you twist the machine and it opens the bottom allowing your freshly brewed coffee to gently drip down with no grinds. From there, you just pour into your favourite cup. Great design from these guys!

$65 gets you a machine and some coffee via their Kickstarter campaign.
