Coffee Φ: The Golden Ratio
From the Imposter Series


The coffeepot is based on a historical coffeepot from 1728-9. The ratio for the height of the coffeepot to the height of the precariously stacked espresso cups is based on the concept of phi (pronounced ‘fee’), The Golden Ratio, and a pun on the word ‘coffee’.

Would you like milk and sugar with your coffee? What is your perfect ratio?
