During quarantine, I try to remind myself of the things I now have the time to enjoy. It is an important technique to train your mind to stay positive and appreciate the slowdown even if it is the little things. I used to rush out every morning and just grab a coffee to go. Being a coffee aficionado, this lockdown gave me the time to enjoy my coffee right from the brewing method to the last sip minus the worry of spilling it as I power-walked to my office. I am finally paying attention to the details of the coffee apparatus – usually, they are all either glass with cork accent or steel (no plastic, sustainable living all the way!) until I found Kork Kafeware which is a whole range that combines cork and stainless steel!
Kork Kafeware was designed to encourage people to take a break from the daily struggles and enjoy me-time. Functionally, it gives you the best of both worlds, stainless steel is durable and cork is heat-resistant. The eco-conscious range includes french press, espresso maker, goose-neck kettle, and coffee grinder which is all you need to enjoy a perfect cup at home. Kork uses the inherent qualities of cork and polished stainless steel to create a natural, functional product designed to last a lifetime. Cork is a sustainable alternative to plastic and offers unique insulative, elastic and lightweight properties to the design.
Inspired by Scandinavian design, the Kork Kafeware collection encourages you to appreciate the craftsmanship of the daily objects in our lives. Making coffee is an art and Chung wanted to inspire more people to appreciate that experience through his collection. You can customize the taste of your coffee to you liking – improvise and get creative as you go, you have all the right tools!
