work of art? chemistry experiment? no, its cold drip coffee


a large tower, with wooden sides and three tiers of glass, used to brew coffee

kyoto-style iced coffee (like this yama brew tower) looks like both a work of art, and a science experiment. we wanted to highlight this beautiful brew method that has played a huge part in the Kavnia story.

 japanese cold drip is said to have been introduced by the dutch in the 1600’s and the slow drip of water over the bed of coffee really does something amazing. the founders of Kavnia first experienced cold drip in new orleans, where they were introduced to coffee made with an oji dripper.
