Colours of Shopping: Red

Inspired by the layered reds in our June/July 2019 print edition, we suggest adding some bright pops of crimson to your everyday coffee experience.

Inspired by the layered reds in our Curate feature in the June/July 2019 print issue of House and Leisure – as well as by cold winter mornings – we ask, 'How do you take your coffee?'

That's because there are numerous ways to incorporate a flash of red into your decor (and everyday life), and adding it via a coffee machine or travel cup just adds an extra dimension of fun to the mix.

When it comes to coffee, even if your favourite is good old instant, we are almost sure that boiling water in the very lovely – not to mention iconic – Alessi whistling kettle will add to your joy. (We hear that the Michael Graves kettle you can shop online below is one of Alessi's bestselling products worldwide.)

The retro SMEG filter coffee machine is a beauty to look at and to use, and the same goes for the smart ceramic French press by Le Creuset. 

Because we also think that failing to prepare is preparing to fail, if you are going away for a weekend in a remote cabin where there is no Yours Truly close by, well, take your Wacaco Nanopresso portable espresso maker with. It weighs just 300g and is but 15cm long – a compact coffee-poruding wonder, in other words. 

Last but not least is the new model Nespresso CiTiz, in cherry red. If pod coffee is your thing, this one sure looks nice. Please be mindful and recycle your used pods, though!  

And if you've been captured by the coffee culture, but are also a conscious consumer, you probably already have a portable cup. If not, we rather like this design, which is called the Master Spiro.
