Chicago-based industrial designer and creative director Craighton Berman has designed a coffee making appliance that brings joy back into the brewing process. MANUAL is a ‘slow coffee’ appliance designed to sit on the countertop for fast access and give drinkers control of the pour-over brewing process in a single-cup preparation.

Its glass shape enables users to get a clear view of the brewing process. The brewing happens directly into the final drinking vessel and the “double-wall” design retains more heat, which helps maintain ideal extraction temperatures. The wooden base is designed to provide a ‘home’ for the glass appliance and it also insulates the mug from heat loss and catches any drips during brewing.

MANUAL was launched with ‘Chicagoland,’ a curated exhibition for ICFF 2013. The prototypes will be further tested and refined for a Kickstarter launch in late summer 2013. Click through to see images of the coffee maker:
