Never for a moment did I think my kettle was flawed. It worked perfectly and never let me down. There was no hint of rust or loose handle to set my eye wandering. But in January a harmless article caught my eye about coffee making. Before I got to the end, my now “old” kettle was done-for.
The Japanese, having mastered tea, have moved onto coffee and done one thing after the other, according to the author, to make it great. He spoke of a cloth filter but I am waiting for retirement to take on that part-time job. But their kettle!
My Buono (sic) kettle is made in Japan by Hario. Its neck reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Gaze on its elegance!
Is the coffee better? To begin with, the grinds welcome the Buono’s slender pour and then they relax. It sounds ridiculous but it’s true. As my new kettle is a swan and not a duck, of course the coffee tastes better!
