Ode Brew Grinder
Best New Product: Consumer Coffee Preparation and Serving Equipment (Electrical) - Specialty Coffee Association Awards 2021
Every year, the Specialty Coffee Association Awards recognize excellence in product innovation, design, and sustainability across the industry. In 2021, Ode took the title for Best New Product in the Consumer Coffee Preparation and Serving Equipment (Electrical) category, an annual award for equipment that enhances the quality of specialty coffee and tea beverages for consumers.
Red Dot Design Award 2022
Ode also won the prestigious international Red Dot Design Award in 2022. “The geometric design language and a large rotary knob give Ode Brew Grinder a remarkable appearance. A particularly useful feature is that the coffee grinder stops automatically after each grinding process,” wrote the Red Dot jury.

Carter Move Mug, our trusty, slim, ceramic-lined travel mug, was recognized for showcasing great design, winning the 2021 Specialty Coffee Association Award for Best Coffee Design: Vessel.
Red Dot Design Award 2018
Our first Red Dot Design Award win came in 2018, and five years later, Stagg EKG is still going strong as the best electric pour-over kettle on the market. “With its distinctive form, this electric kettle is reminiscent of traditional porcelain cans. The matte-black surface not only provides a contemporary impression, the Stagg EKG also offers several modern functions,” wrote the Red Dot jury.

The 10 Best New Food & Drink Products of the Year - Gear PatrolAn honorable mention for Fellow Drops. It’s not a product, it’s a service, and Gear Patrol described it as a “Game Changer”. They wrote: “Fellow Drops is an effective and needed curator of good coffee…It's a lot easier to leave the hunt for new and interesting coffee to professionals than it is to do the dirty work yourself.”
