idr – intelligent dosing ring

Client: Costas Pliatsikas, much-awarded barista.

Mission: Develop a design from Costa’s own idea that optimises the brewing of espresso for both user and production.

Result: idr is a barista accessory that helps create a smooth pack in the coffee filter and a better tasting coffee.

The product is clipped on to the filter and functions as a funnel when filling up the beans. When the filter filled, the idr is removed and leaves a smoothly packed filter. The overflow of coffee can be assembled and used again, which decreases the spillage that normally adds up to a lot of money over time. The idr is demanded by baristas from all over the world.
