Sharp List: The Hario Cold Water Coffee Dripper

Sure there are faster, more convenient ways to get your caffeine fix, but the Hario Cold Water Coffee Dripper, a Japanese sci-fi dream in tempered glass and acrylic, is all about nuance.

Fill the top beaker with water and ice, add your freshly ground beans to the middle, open the spout and let the magic begin. In three to five hours (you should probably start before your guests arrive), your perfectly chilled water will have filtered down through the beans and into the handsome carafe, yielding up to 750 ml of the sweetest, most delicately flavoured coffee you’ve ever tasted.

They say patience is a virtue, and that may be true, but the best iced coffee of your life is reward enough, no?
