Gabe Herz and Andy Clark met while working at a product incubator in the Santa Cruz mountains. Gabe has a BS in Mechanical Engineering, and Andy has a BFA in Industrial Design -- both have experience with manufacturing in China. Their mutual love of everything coffee, and design lead them to form bruer -- dedicated to creating quality products that celebrate the process of brewing coffee. Brewing coffee is not just about the end product, its about the ritual behind it. Every step is an intimate action that leads up to that first sip, and the satisfaction that comes from knowing that cup of coffee is your artistic creation.
