This project was made for my EPD (Entrepreneurial Product Development) class. With plans for scaling post-graduation, I’d like to continue producing Beton and start a brand with this as the first product. Made by hand, I wanted to use materials properties to enhance their characteristics. With a balance between form and function each material serves a purpose first while developing the form through the process of making. Beton is the optimal environment to preserve the quality and freshness of coffee. The vessel is made of concrete and cork, two materials that are naturally impermeable, allowing your coffee to be stored in an environment that prohibits moisture, air, and light from interacting with the grounds.
