About The Quindio Collection
What filters do I use with Quindio?
Thanks to its wedge-shaped dripper, Quindio uses standard cone filters that you can easily find at any store. You can choose filters # 2 or # 4 depending on the amount of coffee you want to brew.
Where do you manufacture Quindio?
We design and produce Quindio in Barcelona, Spain, under our slow production method and working with local masters in ceramics and wood. If you are interested in more information about the production of Quindio, please visit The Process. For more info about our production ethos, please visit The Pillars.
How do you source the wood for your products?
The wood used in each of our products is purchased directly from our suppliers in Catalonia, Spain, who comply with FSC certifications on woods coming from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. We select each one of the wooden planks, which are then processed to obtain the final pieces. In this way, we not only guarantee the quality of the wood in our pieces, but also its origin and environmental responsibility.
Are there any plastic parts?
Absolutely not! We believe that the way to bring new products to this world is in a responsible way, using natural and noble materials, under responsible production processes.
Is Quindio food safe?
Yes. The dripper and the server are made of Spanish stoneware, a high quality ceramic that is used in the most demanding tableware.
The wooden stand and lid have been treated with natural plant oils and waxes, which are safe for humans, animals, plants and food contact according to EN 71.3 (European standard). The finishing is also resistant to wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juice, milk and water according to DIN 68861-1A, which prevents liquid stains and spots.
Is there a hot plate?
No. Adding heat to brewed coffee ruins the flavor within minutes. The Quindio ceramic server with its wooden lid in place will keep the coffee warm for about 15 minutes.
Are the dripper and server dishwasher safe?
Yes, they are dishwasher safe. However, to make sure your Quindio stays in good shape, we recommend just rinsing the dripper and server in warm tap water after each brew, using a drop of dish soap if you’d like.
Cleaning the ceramic dripper is simple, especially if you clean your Quindio right after brewing. In that case you just need to rinse it with water and dry it. If you leave the coffee residue to dry in the funnel, you can use a sponge or cloth and a bit of water to clean it, or to make it even easier, pour some warm water in the funnel and let it dissolve the residue, then rinse it again et voila, your Quindio is clean and ready for brewing again.
How do I clean the wooden stand and lid?
To clean the wooden stand and lid, you just need to wipe a damp cloth to remove any coffee stains. The server lid can also be washed by hand, with dish soap but avoiding running water. The wood has been treated in such a way that it is resistant to spills, so a damp cloth will suffice. It is not necessary to clean it under running water, this could damage the wood in the long term. Avoid full water immersion and under no circumstances wash the stand and lid in a dishwasher. You can read more about Product Care here.
How do you finish the wooden stand and lid?
Our walnut and oak stands are sealed with natural plant oils and waxes that are not harmful to the environment, safe for humans, animals and plants. The wood finishing is food safe and also prevents liquid staining on the stand.
Will coffee stain my wooden stand and lid?
No. The stand and lid have been treated to resist heat and humidity, so it will not stain if you have normal care and clean after each use. It is very difficult for the stand to get stained, but like any other product of any material, it can happen if it is not cleaned properly. The natural oils and waxes used in the finishing of the stand and lid comply with DIN 68861-1A to prevent liquid stains and spots. However, we always recommend cleaning the wood after each use, in order not only to prevent staining but also to preserve the beauty of the wood.
Can I use the wooden stand with other drippers?
Yes! We know the importance of exploring new preparations and brewing methods, that is why we believe Quindio can coexist with other drippers, such as using your V60 with our wooden stand and server.
Can I buy only the dripper, server or wooden stand?
At this time it is not possible. Currently we are selling Quindio as a complete piece in pursuit of a cohesive experience and appearance within your modern living space.
Which parts of Quindio can be replaced?
All Quindio parts can be purchased separately to replace parts that have been damaged during use. If you want to buy the replacements, please contact us.
How much liquid can the ceramic server hold?
The server holds up to 700ml (23.7Oz) of liquid.
What does the packaging contain?
When you receive your Quindio Coffee Maker, you will find inside the packaging the complete set with the server and its lid, the solid wood stand and the dripper.
