Coffee Cosy News
your paper, settled for a Saturday morning, sipping your coffee.
You pour a second cup; it's cold.
Love that French press/Bodum coffee, but hate that it cools so quickly.
a new little number that will be music to your ears.
A coffee cosy, the brainchild of 5440 bassist Brad Merritt
no less, is now being marketed on the Internet.
The trendy-looking black cosies are made of Commander fabric, a
cotton-poly blend that is water -- and dirt -- resistant. Folded
inside these two thin layers of fabric are two layers of Solari,
a metallic-type of insulating material used for oven mitts. It Velcroes
around the glass shaft of the coffee maker, in each of the one-litre
and 1.5-litre sizes.
The result? A non-bulky cosy that keeps coffee super warm.
Merritt, a longtime coffeephile from his days on the road, came
up with the concept after too many cold cups. He says his cosy will
keep a one-litre pot warm to within 5 C of your coffee's fresh-made
temperature -- up to 25 minutes after you first make it. The larger
pots stay that hot for up to 40 minutes after being made. We tried,
and that tasted about right, which was a nice change for those of
us who love our Bodum java hot.
Check out his Website at Decentcoffee.com for more on the
cosy, the French press, and coffee history and culture.
The Decentcoffee.com cosy can be ordered from the site -- $16 for
the one-litre size, $18 for 1.5-1itre size (price includes shipping).
Or, if you prefer to run around town, you can pick them up at the
Market Kitchen in the net loft on Granville Island, at $19.99 and
keeps your coffee STEAMING HOT!
