Believe it or not, bamboo is not just the foodstuff of pandas.
It can also be used to make other things, like this elegant stirrer.
But why do you need one? Picture your beautiful glass syphon heating gently on the counter, the water near boiling and achingly close to ascending into the upper brew chamber. It's nearly time to stir the coffee so you reach for a spoon in anticipation. Suddenly you realise that the spoon is too short and that, with one false move, you could easily damage your beloved syphon.
Enter the bamboo stirrer.
Soft, efficient, a good length for any brew method, and paddle shaped to give a more even agitation. It's also really easy to keep clean as all it requires is a wipe down with a damp cloth after use, then left to dry.
And if your Hario Bamboo Stirrer is getting to the point of appearing "well loved", you can easily justify getting a new one, as the old one will make quick work of mixing up your jar of natural peanut butter.
