Kahva maker just a gussied up percolator


Programmers, college kids and anyone else who needs one or two (or more!) cups of joe (n. Morning Joe) to get through the day might enjoy this unusual coffee maker, Kahva. (“Kawa,” pronounced the same as “kahva,” is “coffee” in Polish. Other cognates exist, too. We’re educational.) While the premise is not all too dissimilar to a percolator, the fact that the water flows upward bemused more than one passerby.

Not me, though. Not bemused.

UPDATE~! Oh man, egg on my face. Seems Kahva can more accurately (read: “correctly”) be described as a vacuum coffee maker. What do I know? I go to Starbucks and spend $2 on a grande bold every day.
