Exquisite custom brew bar is made from copper and cherrywood components

JoEllen Depakakibo is an entrepreneur who went from Blue Bottle barista to the owner of stylish San Francisco outpost, Pinhole Coffee. Now she's collaborated with Toronto-based Monarch Methods to create a custom range of coffee-brewing goods for her store. Inspired by the principles with which she runs her business, the brew bar includes handmade copper kettle and cherrywood drip bar. These exquisite one-of-a-kind tools would be at the top of any coffee lovers wish list.

The principles that root the designs are precision and warmth – both of which were expressed through the details, materials and fabrication of the brew bar. A unique piece of cherry wood with immediately recognizable grain and depth of color was used for the base. Compatible with a variety of manual brewers, its three recessed scales are also built into the base to allow for real-time monitoring of the drink's weight.
