Hour Glass / Cup

Hour Glass
Hour Glass

Hour glass is an universal coffee and tea brewer as well as a drink ware. It can relieve stress and brew the coffee or tea thoroughly for the user at the same time when the silicone rubber of the hour glass is being squeezed as it creates a circular motion at the base of the cup

It works when the air pressure from the silicone rubber reaches into the inner cup and creates a motion with a ball helping it to brew thoroughly. There is also a layer of vacuum to prevent heat from escaping through the cup so as to retain its flavor and aroma of the solution in the cup to give the user a feeling of satisfaction
