It seems to be an immutable law of hydrodynamics that if something tastes good, it usually tastes better coming out of a mason jar. New York's Intelligent Design Company is hoping that holds true, even for pour-over coffee.

Its latest design is the Pour Mason, a coffeemaker that is specifically aimed at the home canning contingent.

Made of 18-gauge aluminum alloy and finished in electroless nickel right in Williamsburg, the Pour Mason is a metal lid that is screwed on top of the mouth of a standard soda-lime glass jar. Once fitted, you can essentially brew coffee straight into it.

This Mason Jar Coffeemaker Is The Most Hipsterrific Thing You'll See Today

Straight from Williamsburg. Where else?

It seems to be an immutable law of hydrodynamics that if something tastes good, it usually tastes better coming out of a mason jar. New York's Intelligent Design Company is hoping that holds true, even for coffee. Its latest design is the Pour Mason, a pour-over coffeemaker aimed specifically at the home canning contingent.

Made of 18-gauge aluminum alloy and finished in electroless nickel right in Williamsburg, the Pour Mason is a metal lid that is screwed on top of the mouth of a standard soda-lime glass jar. Once fitted, you can essentially brew coffee straight into it.

Admittedly, there is literally nothing stopping you from breaking out a Kerr jar from your cupboard and brewing some coffee in it right now using your existing pour-over. That's a good point, which I think is why it's important to keep in mind that the Pour Mason isn't an almost comically fetishistic mason jar accessory, but rather a regular pour-over coffeemaker that's being marketed to people who just really like the mason jar aesthetic.

Which is kind of genius, when you think about it. To make the Pour Mason, Intelligent Design has arranged for every star in the hipster firmament—Williamsburg! Pour-Over Coffee! Mason Jars! Best-Made!—to celestially align, creating a product that could only be more its type if it squeezed into a pair of skinny jeans and began threading a tiny comb through a waxed mustachio.

If that sounds like your kind of coffeemaker, the Pour Mason can be ordered from Intelligent Design's website for $35.

    I drink hot coffee / tea out of my mason jar with a handle, and I LOVE this idea, especially for brewing a hot beverage to take on my walk to work. Sure you can use a regular plastic cone and balance it on the jar if you really want to, but the fact that this screws onto the jar makes it great for naturally clumsy people like me.

    What annoys me about the Hipster thing is not the aesthetic, cause I like that, but the overwhelming lack of creativity. Drinks, coffee, mason jars, and graphics that involve Xs. What else you got?

  • I agree with Jason. My first thought was, that device is going to burn like hell. I use an old coffee maker cone and put it in the cup (with a handle) I will drink hot coffee out of. This is not rocket or hipster science.

    What's that I hear? Oh it's the screams of thousands of hipster idiots burning their fingers on hot mason jars. Oh and after you soak your burnt hand your coffee will be cold due to the rapid heat transfer of the thin glass.
