Tsubame Stainless Steel Enamel Coffee Measuring Spoon
One level spoonful of this beautiful measuring spoon is about 8g of whole beans and 10g of ground coffee. One and a half to two spoons of coffee is just enough to make a mug of coffee by the pour over method, the most popular way to make coffee at home in Japan.
The black enamel coffee measuring spoon is a part of the Tsubame Stainless Steel Enamelware collection developed by Glocal Standard Products of Yokohama in collaboration with a longstanding cutlery manufacturer in Tsubame, Niigata prefecture. The pieces in the collection are made by hand by experienced metal and enamel craftspeople. Each product is adorned with a small flying swallow in honor of Tsubame city, the place of manufacturing (tsubame in Japanese means swallow).
What separates the Tsubame Stainless Steel Enamelware from other enamelware is that stainless steel, instead of regular steel, is used as the base material. It takes an extra effort to produce stainless steel enamelware, as the components of both the metal and enamel must be tweaked to synchronize each other. Stainless steel does not require a rust preventive treatment as regular steel does, and enamel is sprayed on pieces as opposed to the pieces being dipped in enamel material. As a result, the Tsubame Stainless Steel Enamelware has a lightweight finish while maintaining all the benefits of enamelware.
