“Lyle’s London opened just a few months ago in the Tea Building, a creative space hub in the bustling, hip Shoreditch neighborhood. The renowned young chef behind the restaurant is James Lowe, of Young Turks fame. Lyle’s is a clean, quiet, and serene space offering lunch and dinner service while also providing a daytime drop-in coffee bar, headed (quite improbably) by another man called James Low……….”

The Balance Brewer is made up of three main parts: A lower chamber, a coffee chamber made with a filter, and a Tim Wendleboe AeroPress filter and a water chamber. Essentially, the brewer works like an hourglass. With the three parts put together, boiling water in the bottom, coffee in the middle, and an empty chamber on top (all airtight), the device then gets flipped, and a valve is turned, allowing the water to drip consistently through the ground coffee in about 4 minutes. The process essentially looks like how you might invert an Aeropress, but on a much larger scale.
You can read more about the brewer and a short interview with its designer Courtney Brennan on Sprudge.com.

A short film documenting Kalle Freese & Erika Haa’s trip to London in March of 2013. It’s nice to see a capture of Protein, its feel, vibe and athmosphere. That energy lives on today at Sharps Coffee Bar By DunneFrankowski located on 9 Windmill Street, in Fitzrovia.
In March 2013 we took a train to London to visit our friends and discover new places. We went to several shops, but filmed only in a couple of them - Association, Workshop, Rapha Cycle Club and Protein. Protein was established as a pop-up shop by Rob Dunne, but nowadays he is running Dunne Frankowski at Sharps.
We buy a lot of coffees from different roasters around Europe such as Workshop Coffee, but how do we find the good ones? Some of them are our old friends, but we are looking for new exciting things all the time. In this series we want to tell you a bit more about this process, but also to showcase the makers behind these fantastic coffees and the coffee shops themselves.
