Handmade by the magnificent ceramist Maria Levina. Her project Maria Levine filled with deep engineering and high aesthetics.
The cup was designed specifically for brewing coffee in drip bags. It not only solves a number of problems that we may encounter when brewing, but also allows us to brew stably without using scales.
She opened a bag of drip coffee, took the first cup, scales, kettle and began to brew a drip, whispering to herself: "drips were invented so that they were easy to brew." But in practice? It is necessary to take a high cup – otherwise the water will not flow through the bag with ground coffee, such a "half-melting" will come out. And you also need to guess with the diameter of the mug, and that is the risk that the drip bag will break off the rim and fall into the cup. And you also need to somehow calculate these 180-200 ml, which are recommended to pour in to get a delicious cup of coffee, and here you need scales. Somehow everything gets complicated.

Here are the requirements Katya wrote for the perfect coffee cup for drip coffee:
We have a slightly different approach to drip packages: we create them with an ideal recipe and a good grain in order to brew coffee as you like in any conditions. We insist on experiments and improvisation when brewing, do not write strict rules and give only recommendations so that you drink the kind of coffee that suits you best. However, this cup has become part of our collection, and it has really greatly simplified my favorite way of brewing a drip bag at home: just banging on the Potter valve until the water gets to the intended upper third of the cup.
