2. Buono Kettle

The Japanese company Hario has launched an iced-coffee maker, the Fretta ($36), to use with its long-spouted Buono kettle. $59; hariousa.com.

Iced Coffee Brewing Method

The Japanese method of brewing iced coffee works best with fruit-forward beans roasted on the lighter end of the spectrum, like those from East Africa. The farmer-friendly company Crop to Cup has even created an Iced African blend specifically for this technique. $9.50 for 10 oz; croptocup.com.
