One of many addictions that I will admit to publicly is coffee. And although I have many favourite coffee places all over the city and in each city I frequent, sometimes you just want to brew at home. While results can vary, over the past couple years I have enjoyed discovering new ways to home brew.  One process in particular that has become the new ‘standard’ in chic coffee consumption is slow drip cold brewing. The only problem is that many of the current brewing devices for this process are impractical and overpriced. Until I discovered Cold Bruer.

What I like best about this system, besides the simplicity of the device is that is makes cold brewing into a visually appealing process. It’s about the ritual. There are three levels: water, ground coffee, and a coffee collection chamber. Water slowly drips from the water chamber into the coffee chamber, saturating the coffee; once the coffee grounds are saturated the coffee drips down into the coffee pot. This is a slow process; it can take anywhere between 3 and 12 hours depending on drip rate you select. Simply set it up to brew over night for the next morning.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
