Function & materials of ARCA X-Tract-Brew
"We don't want to make a science out of coffee preparation. For us, it's all about taste; the daily ritual of making coffee should be easy, it shouldn't take too long and it should still be a pleasure to serve and look good. In addition, environmentally friendly coffee preparation is close to our hearts".

Kirsten & Jürgen Henkel

Anything is possible; the best coffee is the one you like! 

Jürgen: I have been working on the topic of coffee preparation for a long time. When our friend James from Taiwan showed me his newly developed and patented coffee filters, I was immediately enthusiastic. The elaborately crafted stainless steel filter has an additional sieve inside, which I had never seen before. The matching porcelain lid holds the filter in place with a silicone ring. The design team from Yamamoto & Co in Lucerne developed the design and this is how the Arca X-tract Brew for Carl Henkel came into being. 

X-TRACT-BREW is a simple way to brew a proper cup of coffee without paper filters. The extraction method is a "non-forced extraction" or full-immersion brewing process, comparable to making tea or professional “coffee cupping”. It allows you to make your coffee exactly as you would like it at any time. What do we mean by that? You can use any grind quality, quantity of coffee or water temperature. Anything is possible; the best coffee is the one you like! 

The X-Tract Brew System is durable, simple and wastes no extra consumables. Not even filter paper. Just water and good coffee!
