It’s hard to believe that perfecting the art of pour over coffee can be as simple as scoop and stir but that’s precisely what makes the Canadiano so amazing. The device itself is little more than a block of wood with a stainless steel filter attached however the secret, they say, is in the materials. Each type of wood is matched with different beans and roasts from around the world, the walnut edition and the white oak edition are crafted and designed for use with darker roasts and earthier flavours such as beans from South East Asia. Birch and cherry are designed for beans with slight citrus hints and nutty tastes.
The process itself is equally as simple, place the Canadiano over the cup, add two spoons of coarsely ground coffee and pour hot water into the wooden bowl. Stir a few times and two to four minutes later, you’ve got a rich, smooth and silky cup of coffee. The metal filter is also kinder on the environment than traditional paper filters so you can feel good about that as you enjoy your brew. As its name implies, the Canadiano is Canadian however the thoughtful folks do ship to Australia.
