Call us crazy, but we often wonder how we can make a smooth cup of joe while at the same time reducing our carbon footprint. Okay, so we made that up, but we got you thinking, right? Feast your earth-conscious eyes on The Hourglass Coffee Maker ($80), a cold brew machine that uses no heat or electricity to produce coffee low in acid (yuck) but high in taste (mmm). Just add ground coffee beans and water to the blue hourglass, wait 12 hours, turn over the hourglass, add hot water, and voila! What? 12 hours? Nobody said this planet-saving business was fast. Sheesh.
