Pour Over Coffee—Aussie Style

Issue 82 · Australia by Design · July 22, 2013

I spotted designer Björn Rust's colorful wire framed coffee maker at Dwell on Design over a year ago. Last month he was back on the West Coast again with his pour-over coffee maker, this time curating Tastemakers LA, an exhibition featuring more than 15 of Australia’s happening brands in conjunction with Quench, a Queensland design collective.

Rust, who is based in Queensland, used cork, wire, steel, and a glass filter to create his solution for preparing the perfect single serving of coffee. Sold in small production runs, Rust is currently in the process of refining the Pour Over to improve extraction properties and reduce the unit cost. Stay tuned for the next iteration. For more information, go to Björn Rust.
