In commercial settings such as cafes, baristas are under pressure to pull tens and hundreds of high quality espressos in efficient time, where at home and office it is a moment of ritual and ‘zen’ (like tea brewing experience), enjoying every point of the process from warming up your cup to throwing away the puck, for only a few times day compared to hundreds.
Enter Sinonimo Essentials—a coherent collection of essential tools for espresso making that are designed to live within modern living spaces such as your home or office. The essentials includes a tamper, tamp support, funnel, knock-box and lid/base that are coherent in form and function. It is designed to adapt and enrich your everyday ritual of an espresso making experience. When not in use, it simply becomes part of your environment. Once the ritual begins, it will quietly enrich the journey of espresso making with considerations of every single point of the process, from removing the lid with tamper, tamp station, and funnel to knocking out the puck using the tactility of dense cork. The ritual is completed once you have placed the lid with tamp station on the knock box and you will see the moisture from the puck evaporating out the two outlets.
