clive coffee drip stand

by Grace Bonney

Coffee has never been my drink of choice. Growing up it took me ages to even get used to hot tea. For some reason hot drinks in the morning always seemed so heavy and nice cold orange juice was always more my speed. But over the past year or so I’ve learned to truly appreciate the power of caffeine for mornings like these when my alarm seems more like an enemy than a friend.

This morning I’m still trying to kick the last bits of jet lag hanging around and nothing sounds better than a big giant cup of coffee, served, as I call it, “Dunkin Donuts style”. Meaning the drink is equal parts coffee, cream and sugar. Yum. For some reason I’m terrible at making my own home coffee, but I’ve always loved all of the equipment and accessories that come with home brewing. From french presses to beautiful mugs, the act of making coffee at home always seems to grown-up. So when I saw this gorgeous from in Portland, Oregon I immediately wanted one. Designed by Delaney Kelly of and handmade in Portland, the is made of salvaged Oregon Walnut that was too small for other purposes and was bound for the trash. Clive Coffee was aiming to echo the clean designs of the Eames and George Nakashima and I think, thanks to Delaney’s beautiful woodworking, they’ve done just that.

The finishing touch on the drip stand is a custom pourover cone by and with that last bit I think the piece is just perfect. I’m probably not anywhere near as coffee proficient as I need to be to get one of these, but if you’re a coffee lover and would like to try one of these (I’ve heard manual drip coffee is a strong coffee lover’s dream) you can to buy the stand for $165. Happy Brewing! xo, grace
