If sometimes the aesthetics of brewing a cup of coffee are equally as important as the coffee itself, then this elegant Brass Pour-Over Drip Coffee Maker ($55) may fit your style. The stand is a tubular industrial sculpture in brass with an adjustable arm that holds the fluted glass filter cone.

Mounted on a simple wooden base this slow brew coffee machine has a two cup capacity. Proper slow pouring of the water into the grounds in the filter cone in a circular motion is the secret to the perfect beverage. Because it is simple elegance, there are no bells and whistles so a napkin on the base under the drip hole assures less potential staining.

The glass filter cone is fragile so extra care should be taken when cleaning. Otherwise, this distinctive, gravity-powered coffee maker can lend understated gravitas to your morning juice.
