Known as "an unsightly weed that spoils the nation's lawns," dandelion coffee might possess some redemptive connotations for the plant. In an attempt to highlight biodiversity and contribute to a more sustainable future, Daisy Newdick — a graduate from Central Saint Martins, has crafted a method for brewing dandelion coffee at home.
The project bears the somewhat politically inspired name of 'Make Weeds Great Again.' For it, Daisy Newdick designed a roaster that can "prepare the dandelion roots before grinding and brewing them into coffee."
Introducing this design-forward method to one's morning routine will omit the necessity of beans, which, in turn, will limit having to transport them overseas. In a country like the UK, where "people consume around 95 million cups of coffee per day," dandelion coffee might be of strong importance.
