Discipline: Product

The world’s first double-walled coffee dripper is both an optical and technical highlight, which blends in well with the modern and classic fine porcelain. The KPM coffee dripper is handcrafted from the finest porcelain, which is absolutely neutral in taste due to its non-porous surface. The double walls result in a hollow space with an insulating layer of air, which reduces the temperature loss during the filtering process. The ribs of the dripper, which have the appearance of folded paper, conduct the coffee on the inner walls swiftly downwards. The size of the openings in the bottom has been calculated to let the coffee flow smoothly.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2015

It is wonderful to see that the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin is back in the game with a completely new and innovative take on a low-tech product like a coffee filter. The double-wall construction provides an insulating layer of air and the water flows at a consistent rate through the holes in the bottom. A beautiful piece of craftsmanship for the everyday brewing of coffee.
