Coffee with notes of wood


If you’re a fan of the pour-over method of brewing your morning Joe, no doubt you have a trusty plastic cone and a supply of paper filters.  Each morning it’s the same experience, the same tasting coffee.  What if there was a way to keep the ease of a drip coffee and at the same time develop an even richer taste to your preferred bean?  The Canadiano is a wood-based method of brewing coffee and is essentially a wooden container housing a metal filter.  However, the premise is that the oils and flavors of the coffee will over time be imparted into the wood, and then make its way back into your coffee, giving more depth to your morning cup.

The Canadiano is available in walnut (intended for darker, earthy coffee roasts), maple, and cherry (the latter two for light, citrus roasts) and ranges in price from $45-60, depending on the wood and finish.

    Stick with an Aeropress and save the landfill

    The Aeropress is really hard to beat for that perfect single cup of coffee, but to be fair, it does still use a paper disc filter. The Canadiano has a reusable/rinsable metal filter; no paper required. Not sure how much validity I put in the Canadiano’s claims about infusing future cups with flavors of the past, but it does look slicker than the plastic cone filters, IMO.

    Rancid coffee oil soaked into the wood will not make better tasting brews. Over time the taste would be horrible. Pretty impressive they managed to turn this into a marketing point though.

    They do say you can wash it if you need to get rid of the coffee oils, I guess it’s worth giving a shot!
