The Duo Eliminates Coffee Cup Grains with a Tilting Hourglass Design

The Duo coffee maker offers consumers a grain-free cup of java thanks to an unconventional hourglass shape that allows users to tilt the coffee pot upside down and strain out the residue. This ensures that each blend contains nothing but the caffeinated liquid, leaving the grounds properly behind.

Often times coffee pots always end up letting little bit of the grounds seep through the filter that can easily collect at the base of a cup. The Duo is designed to eliminate this issue by using a tilting action that properly filters the liquid so it comes out entirely clear. The maker is shaped like an hourglass with the hot water and beans going into the top compartment. The filter is located in the centre, and when the device is flipped it allows the liquid to slowly trickle through the base carafe.
