New Bespoke Post Boxes for March
For March, Bespoke Post has launched a new collection and brought back a favorite. Here are the details on each box:
Your neighborhood café isn’t the only place to find a great cup.
With the right tools, you can get a carefully made, fully-flavored pour while bringing some old school simplicity back to your home brew. We’ve packed in some top shelf brewing essentials to ensure you’ve got everything on hand to make a damn good drink.
Madrid French Press, 1 Liter, Grosche
An electric drip machine has got nothing on this time-tested exercise in simplicity and good taste. Grosche’s top-of-the-line Madrid French Press lets you craft your own cup with an easy process that produces extraordinary results. Just steep your coffee grounds orloose-leaf tea in the hand-made beaker, press, strain and pour. It’s simple to use, but controls the brewing to your exact preferences so you’ll end up with a better handle on your drink’s flavor profile. Since there’s better contact with the water, your cup will be richer and more full-bodied (not to mention more stylish).
Milk Frother, Red or Black, Grosche
Tired of the same cup of coffee every morning? Try out a cafe au lait, latte, cappuccino, or any other frothed milk drink instead. Just pour some milk, flip a switch, and the surprisingly strong motor whips up frothed milk at the right consistency needed for the classic coffee drinks you never thought you could make. Note: 2 AA batteries required
Dulcinea Coffee Beans, 6oz, Cafe Integral
Café Integral curates, roasts, and serves up expertly selected Nicaraguan coffees in their own small-batch blends in downtown New York. Each batch is crafted (literally) from the ground up, by carefully working with specific regions and growers to oversee every step of production. This variation has a medium body and a molasses-like sweetness along with notes of cocoa — so, more than a few steps above your generic supermarket tin. This is how coffee is supposed to taste.
Earl Grey De La Créme Tea, 1.8oz, Tiesta Tea
That’s right, a French press can handle tea just as easily as coffee. Tiesta’s Earl Grey packs black tea with vanilla and blue mallow blossoms for a sweet, creamy improvement to your morning cup. The loose blend allows for unique ingredients and a more thorough steeping process since the flavor isn’t contained to a small bag of over-processed leaves. Just toss some into your new French press, steep, strain, and enjoy a fresh take on earl grey.
Recapture that old-school & distinguished study feel with water-fighting gear that’s as well-crafted as it is handy.
When the weather’s rainy and cold, we’ve got you covered both inside and out. You’ll go from sipping scotch in your oak-paneled den (you’ve got one of those, right?) to braving the elements without missing a beat.
The Stanton Umbrella
Next time you venture into the storm, set aside that drugstore umbrella and match your polished getup with this custom-crafted piece. A year in the making, it’ll see you through rain-soaked downtown dates and stormy walks to work alike, all with a must-have edge.
The wind tunnel tested steel shaft and ribs are tougher than their aluminum counterparts and collapse into an easy-to-carry size that offers plenty of protection. The double-layered inky plaid and contrasting rust-red canopy complement the wood handle and brass accents. Worried about losing it? Don’t be. Once you take the plunge to carrying around a good umbrella, it’s a whole lot easier to keep track of — and with a version this nice, it won’t be slipping your mind anytime soon.
Horween Leather Craft Coasters, 4″ x 4″, Set of 4 – Value $50
Drop your umbrella in its stand, loosen your tie, sink into a plush leather chair, and reach for a glass. These rich & waxy 4″ x 4″ beauties will protect your expensive coffee table (or at least make an IKEA one look like it’s worth protecting) while adding to your room’s sophisticated tone.
They’re made out of best-of-its-kind heavy, 7 oz leather from Horween, a Chicago-based operation that’s been producing the finest leather out there since 1905. We chose their special Chromexcel leather, which undergoes multiple steps of tanning. It makes for an especially elegant finished product that’s durable and resistant to bacteria and fungus, while retaining a nice stretch and flexibility.
Now you’re ready to tackle the rainy season head-on.
