- Joe Hartley's 'Coffee Filter Pot' is a functional, tactile piece of homeware, hand-thrown from matt ivory and matt lichen coloured stoneware.
Refreshingly low-tech, this coffee maker facilitates the filter brewing method, and is compatible with any kind of paper. Each serving makes two cups of coffee, when used with the 'Zig Zag Cups'.
