Sometimes an old standby just needs a good Push. Mette Duedahl's Push Coffee Maker improves on the usual glass press carafe by rethinking it in mellow Nordic-influenced stoneware. The warm grey color and agreeably rounded proportions are nearly as enticing as a cup of good coffee itself. Plunger unit is made of steel and the lid is clear plastic, so you can check the strength of your brew. Young designer Mette is a recent graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Center for Glass and Ceramics.
