If coffee is important to you, important enough to make it the centre of your kitchen and if the time it takes to actually brew your morning coffee is also important then perhaps you should take a look at the Café Balão.
This scientific looking device promises to brew up coffee faster than most machines and the design itself gives your morning brew a precise looking edge.
The glass balloon device is simple, coffee is placed in the top and water in the bottom. The element is plugged directly into the wall and as the water begins to boil it slowly rises and brews the coffee in the top.
On top of an interesting design the whole point of this project from the Portuguese designer Davide Mateus is to reduce the time it takes to brew up.
