Simple & Beautiful: The Design of the ARCA X-Tract Coffee Makers
"The design of the Arca is aesthetic, unobtrusive and durable. The shape corresponds to its purpose and is beautiful at the same time. In our opinion, this is exactly what makes good design. You will love your Arca coffee pot and won't want to give it away!"
Kirsten & Jürgen Henkel
It’s the simple things that are difficult to make.“ Berthold Brecht
The beautiful and functional design of the ARCA X-Tract-Brew
The ARCA X-Tract-Brew is a heat resistant borosilicate glass jug with a patented double-sieve filtration system invented and developed by the design team of Victor & Victoria. The filters are produced using an age-old etching technology. Highly skilled glassblowers make the handcrafted glass jugs. The lid is made of porcelain with a patented silicon ring, which keeps the lid tight to the filter, to prevent that the lid ends up in your freshly brewed coffee when pouring your coffee in a calm and steady manner.
The double-sieve filtration system – the “heart of “X-Tract-Brew”
It’s the simple jug-and-water approach made possible by some innovative photo etching technology and a proprietary stainless steel plus mesh double sieve filter designed to extract the maximum aromatic and full-bodied flavour of coffee. Put ground coffee in the filter, add water just off the boil and let it brew naturally. The ultra-fine mesh of the filter traps all but a few traces of the coffee grounds, thus producing a natural, full-taste coffee.
