About

The Origin Decanter is the minimalist, low-tech coffee brewer designed to unleash the natural expression of aromas and flavours from the origin of your coffee. 

Designed by Trinity Coffee Co. in Brisbane, Australia.

We believe Filter Coffee remains under-appreciated, and undiscovered by many. This is partly to blame for years of poor quality perception - from deficiencies in sourcing and supply right through to processing, roasting, brewing and finally the experience of drinking. Consumers have learned to expect 'bad, bitter, cheap' tastes from brewed coffee, and conversely at the same time have become more accustomed to drinking milk based and sweetened espresso coffee drinks in many cultures. 

This perception is something we plan to change. 

Never before has the quality of farming and green bean supply been so high, the attention to detail in processing and roasting so particular, and the knowledge base of brewing being so vast and accessible. We think filtered coffee should take up a much bigger space in the coffee market - it truly is a remarkable drink that consumers are simply missing out on!  

What do coffee and wine have in common? 

The answer is Origin. With specialty coffee quality advancing quickly, Filter Coffee is now expressing the distinctive expression of its 'terroir', in the same way that we already appreciate and understand wine. The Origin Decanter is specifically designed to unlock the unique expression of each and every cup, without the need for built in apps or technology.

The healthier lower impact choice. 

In a time where people are more health conscious and looking to be socially responsible, drinking brewed filter coffee has never made more sense, in order to minimise our impacts on the environment and improve our overall health and wellbeing. Not to mention, experiencing the delicate coffee flavours as nature intended.

There are already countless brewing devices in the marketplace, but we have included some innovative design features which make our product a stand out, and advantageous over the rest. 

We have designed a simple yet very handy 'sequence grid seal system' that allows you to customise the flow rate and flow channeling through the coffee and filter module. 

This means that you can brew with a broader range of grind coarseness settings with either an increased or decreased output flow rate or altered channelling pattern to brew your perfect cup. 

You can use the Origin Decanter 'as-is' out of the box for effortless brewing, or experiment with as many combinations of grid seal patterns as you like to profile your brewing extraction. 

We have also integrated the filter module and decanter together into one minimalist brewing piece. This is not only more pleasing to the eye, but also keeps the water and coffee contact closer together to prevent unnecessary heat losses during brewing. 

The integrated design makes the Origin Decanter a cheaper option than other alternative products where you buy filter module and decanter separately. 

 

All you need to brew a great cup with the Origin Decanter is fresh filter coffee, a filter paper, and a kettle (gooseneck best). See below for our step by step brewing guide which will get you started.

The Origin Decanter Filter Module is compatible with Kalita Wave 155 filters. We will also be supplying our own compatible non-bleached and compost friendly paper filters. 

We are developing three options - glass, matte black ceramic and high quality 316 stainless steel (made in Brisbane). 

We've manufactured our glassware from high quality borosilicate, and added 0.5mm wall thickness compared to standard brewing products we tested, for extra durability.

 

We have designed the Origin Decanter to be the perfect partner to our first Kickstarter funded product and Good Design Selection award winner, Trinity ONE.

The Origin Decanter can be used with Trinity ONE for completely new brewing functionality, adding a huge amount of value to your brewing set up. 

Paired, you can brew cold drip coffee and automatic pour over coffee that allows an even pour with smooth delicious result every time, hands free.

As a Kickstarter backer you can choose any option you like at a special discounted price, and will be the first in the world to receive it. 

 

 

Make your Origin Decanter the most versatile brewer on the planet by adding on our award winning Trinity ONE Black Edition to your pledge.

You can unlock the ability to truly brew All in ONE, emulating a range of methods including Chemex, V60, Kalita, Clever Dripper, French Press, Cold Drip, Moccamaster and last but certainly not least, our unique gravity press function that provides unsurpassed consistency. All, in one very serious brewing kit! 

By adding on, you will make some substantial savings when compared to buying up multiple devices, and you will declutter your bench at the same time. 

 

 

Raise your pledge by AU $300 and we will send you out your Trinity ONE after the campaign, and your Origin Decanter reward as soon as complete. 

We've done our best to cover shipping costs however will contact you after the campaign if we have underestimated the costs for remote international locations. 

 

We have already been working on this project for most of this year. In fact, we have advanced so for that we have already commenced production for our Origin Decanter Glass and Black Edition with our existing suppliers. Great news for all backers! 

When I started to research manufacturing techniques for stainless steel, I happened to stumble across a very interesting method - metal spinning. 

I found a supplier here in Brisbane, Brian from Queensland Metal Spinners, who uses an incredible machine that he purchased in the 1970's and still operates today. Brian also happens to be one of the few people in the world who can use this machine with great skill, and the result for our project is a beautiful and seamless piece of stainless steel that is spun without a trace of join, weld or blemish. The resulting piece has the feel (and weight) of true craftsman quality.

We need your help, Kickstarter, to fund the tooling for our stamping die so we can produce the stainless steel option right here in Brisbane! 

Funds raised from this campaign (including other pledge options) will go towards funding our tooling to be able to commence manufacturing our first product here in Brisbane, Australia.  Thanks for your help! 

At the end of the day (or end of this Kickstarter campaign) if you have had enough of coffee, you can always grab the Origin Decanter to unwind and decant a bottle of wine instead. 

It happens to perform as a superb wine decanter, aerating effectively, and decanting up to 750ml below the spout (yes, I purposely designed it to contain a bottle of wine). 

Chances are that if you have read through this campaign, and are interested in great coffee, then you are probably also interested in great wine and will appreciate the many similarities between the two :-) 

Cheers! 

Mark.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The Origin Decanter is my second Kickstarter campaign. I've learned an incredible amount about product design, manufacturing and fulfilment with the completion of the Trinity ONE project, with all pledges successfully fulfilled.

Of course, this does not mean we will not experience unexpected challenges and risks along the way for our new project.

Production has commenced with our glassware suppliers, and we are currently refining the specifications for manufacturing. Once the final refinements are complete we see the only potential risk to our glass edition model is potential delays to assembly and shipping schedule.

The black ceramic option is still in pre-production but close to being finalised with tooling completed and production samples being assessed. We may need to alter some minor details around this option before starting production. Therefore, it is likely that the black ceramic option could take longer to deliver than glass option but for now we expect that we can ship together.

The stainless steel option introduces a new and exciting challenge by manufacturing with a new supplier here in Brisbane, Australia. Our tooling is underway, but not yet completed. Therefore, it is likely that the stainless steel option could take longer to deliver than other options. Again, for now we expect the schedule will be delivered on time.

As expected by all backers, I will communicate transparently and frequently as per our first campaign.

I am so excited to see Origin Decanter coming out soon, thanks to your support!
