NYMPH'S TEAR / Considerate dutch kettle


NYMPH'S TEAR is a more thoughtful ice drip coffee maker. Considering the whole process of making a cold drip, not only when users are assembling the maker. Ice drip coffee ferments easily if the temperature is too high, so most of the time users put the coffee maker in the refrigerator. The brass shelf allows users to put the maker into the refrigerator easily while also making the coffee pot stable. Unlike normal ice drip coffee makers where users must disassemble the device to pour coffee, NYMPH’S TEAR’s special cut inside the maker lets users pour coffee directly. I hopes to help coffee lovers enjoy ice drip coffee more conveniently!
