There’s never been a better time to be a brewer of coffee. Cone shapes, flat beds, immersions, percolators, variable flow rate apertures, sous vide: the number of ways to pass water through coffee grounds seems to grow on a near daily basis. With so many options out there, it’s difficult for a new brew device to get noticed. Unless it is as striking as the BRO, that is, the gorgeous new cone brewer from Crooked Nose & Coffee Stories in Lithuania.

Designed by Emanuelis Ryklys, the founder of the Vilnius-based coffee shop, the BRO was in development for nearly a year before being released late last month at the greenhouse of Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences. Ryklys’ idea was to make a uniquely Lithuanian brewer, which for him meant using local woods and linen in the device’s construction. The result is a beautiful piece of brewing equipment, that while meant to represent Lithuania, would feel perfectly at home at any Scandinavian cafe or for sale on the Kurasu website.

The BRO costs €65 and is available for purchase at Crooked Nose & Coffee Stories. Or if you don’t live in Vilnius but would still like to add this beauty to your brewing arsenal, you can email to work out shipping arrangements. For more information, check out the BRO Facebook page.
