Vandola Brewing Guide

The Vandola originates from Costa Rica. Minor Alfaro, a ceramicist and coffee enthusiast, designed this brewing device to not only be beautiful, but to also retain heat more efficiently. Each Vandola is uniquely handmade. The ceramic vessel takes an entire month to make because of the lengthy clay and firing process. The cone and the body are sculpted separately and then joined together. After 15- 22 days of drying, the vessel is ready to go into the kiln. After the first fire, the Vandola is painted, varnished, and then fired in the kiln for the second time. Finally, it is finished. The Vandola contains one distinctive feature which is a small air hole (known as a valve) located just below the funnel. This hole infuses the coffee faster and creates better oxygenation resulting in a coffee with a more defined and sweeter flavor.
