Never miss your fix: The Cafflano Klassic is a kettle, grinder, filter, mug in 1

Hansang Yoon, the CEO of the Beanscorp company, loved coffee so much, he would drink it up to four times a day. After deciding he didn’t want to invest in a pricey espresso machine, he chose to create his own coffee-making device, and Cafflano Klassic was born.

This device includes everything you need to make the perfect cup of coffee, minus the beans and hot water. Cafflano Klassic includes a drip kettle, hand mill grinder, metal filter dripper, and a tumbler cup. It all comes together in what looks like an ordinary travel mug.

The first Kickstarter campaign for the device was a flop. However, the team tweaked the machine and ran a second campaign. Some of the improvements they’ve made are making the device lighter and decreasing the size of the tumbler, which now has a 15-ounce capacity.

To make your to-go cup, adjust the grinder to your desired fineness, add some whole beans, and crank away. Remove the grinder, pour hot water in, and leave it alone for 45 seconds. Later, you can add more water if you like. Take out the filter, and you’ve got yourself a cup of coffee, wherever you happen to be.

The designers know physically grinding your own beans won’t appeal to everyone. “Grinding whole beans with hand mill grinder may require some effort, but we believe soothing coffee aroma wafted while grinding will surely compensate the effort and make users happy,” they wrote on the Kickstarter page. In fact, 658 backers pledged £31,524, well beyond the £1,000 funding goal, which was originally just meant to help get the project’s original backers their Cafflano Klassics. 

Though the Kickstarter has ended, the Cafflano Klassic is now in its second preordering phase, and you can have your own for $99. The product is all ready to go, and you should get yours in May.
