The metal-like texture has a bold appearance yet gives a sense of warmth when used. The shape of the brewer is designed so that the top rim does not get hot and can be held without a handle. The brewer can be placed on the 600ml glass server, or a mug. The bottom of the brewer has a single large hole suitable for use with a conical filter made of stainless steel or cotton paper. Makes two to three cups of coffee.
