I read this article recently in Fortune magazine. Since I’m loving the Clover coffee from Dancing Goats in Decatur this is another that I really want to try. When it comes to Atlanta.
From Fortune magazine:
An extraordinary brew
If Dr. Seuss had wanted a cup of joe to go with his green eggs and ham, this would have been his coffeemaker of choice. Manufactured by Lucky Cremas, a subsidiary of Ueshima Coffee Co. of Japan, the 40-inch-long contraption is an eye-catching combination of bowls and baubles, buttons and tubes that conspire to craft a cup of coffee with all the complexity of a Grand Cru Bordeaux.
From the New York Times:
WITH its brass-trimmed halogen heating elements, glass globes and bamboo paddles, the new contraption that is to begin making coffee this week at the Blue Bottle Café here looks like a machine from a Jules Verne novel, a 19th-century vision of the future.
Called a siphon bar, it was imported from Japan at a total cost of more than $20,000. The cafe has the only halogen-powered model in the United States, and getting it here required years of elliptical discussions with its importer, Jay Egami of the Ueshima Coffee Company.
