If you are gonna go all "make a statement" with your coffee making, here's one way to do it! This is the Yama Cold Drip Coffee Tower, and man does it put on a show.
This brewer is designed to brew coffee from ice, over a long period (4+ hours. The top bowl contains your ice, which melts slowly. The middle portion is made up of a dripper that allows you to precisely control how many drips per second (or how many seconds between drips) will flow down to the coffee, in a vessel just below.
Below that is where the brewed coffee slowly curves around a curly tube and eventually drips into the beaker at the bottom. This brewer can brew up to 32oz (about a litre) and can take up to 8 hours to do a brew. Theatre and coffee, together again!
