Year 2010 


A plum tree which was planted in Jochem’s (Faudet) family garden by his grandfather, was cut down about 8 years ago by his father, Jean, because it no longer gave fruit. Being a wood sculptor he then prepared and dried the timber. Inspired by both Jochem and his father’s passion for drinking coffee, Jochem turned the plum wood into a family of products for making cappuccinos (coffee tamper, cacao shaker and sugar pourer). The coffee tampers were then sculpted by Jean his father.
