Why make a pour over device out of copper or iron pipes? Because it’s stylish, it’ll be your very own creation, and it’s not that difficult to make! (Plus, it could be a great gift.)
The creative people behind HomeMadeModern have produced some easy-to-follow video guides. But before you get out your saws and drill pieces, a quick health and safety warning: please only use tools you know how to operate, wear safety equipment, and work in a safe environment. What’s more, it’s important to make sure that your coffee doesn’t touch the copper or iron pipes directly, but instead flows through the glass.
How to Make a Pour Over Out of Copper/Iron Pipes
In their first video, HomeMadeModern shows how this fancy device is made from copper pipes held together by epoxy, with a glass funnel to hold the coffee filter. Although there are lots of other ways that you can perch a funnel lined with a coffee filter over your coffee cup, it’s the simplicity of the design that makes this project really shine.
This second video from HomeMadeModern involves iron pipes, a 2×6 and, optionally, test tubes. Same concept, completely different look.
There you have it – two easy DIY projects that will add some character to your kitchen.
