Baraka / Coffee brewer (products)


My concept is based on the ETHIOPIAN COFFEE CEREMONY. An authentic brewing has all the stages of coffee making, it starts with roasting the beans, boiling it in a clay pot and ends with consuming it in 3 rounds, Abol, Tona and BARAKA which means ‘to be blessed’ as they say it takes 3 cups to transform the spirit. The ceremony takes us back to a time when value was given to human relations.
I focused on these virtues, used the trinity of their spirit transformation which I interpreted into our modern life. Brewing with Baraka starts with grinding the coffee beans in a mortar, then boiling it 2-3 times in the pot after serving it in 3 cups.
