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