The coolest house releases of June 2022

Welcome to summer! And to welcome you in the hottest months of the year, brands are here to keep you cool. There’s a new brand of instant coffee that wants you to cold brew in an instant – a bit of an oxymoron since cold brew does not do in an instant, but it’s good coffee. Modernica has a sunshade that’s a raised version of a standard umbrella, and Stussy’s collaboration with Tekla has resulted in crisp, fresh duvet covers. And if you love grilling, BlueCut has made a fire-retardant apron that will protect you while you tend to your meats, but won’t protect you from the hot summer sun.

House of Word Instant Cold Brew


People love their cold brew, but it takes a long time to go from coarsely ground coffee to this sweet elixir. House of Word eliminates that time-consuming brewing process with its new Cold Brew Instant Coffee. Jonathan Dreszer, a former employee of coffee and roastery Devoción, founded House of Word, eschewing the typical freeze-dried instant coffee for something new. The brand uses an instant cold infusion process, which Dreszer explains this way: “The concentrated cold infusion is added to a chamber that releases very hot, dry air, creating a dry, fresh powder in less of one second and significantly reduces product degradation.”

Coffee is made by mixing the coffee crystals with hot water (for hot coffee) or cold water (for cold brew). The beans used by House of Word come from India, which the brand presents as one of the “biodiversity hotspots”.

Aarke, who make my favorite water carbonator, are now in the water purification game, taking on brands like Brita and Pur.

Maker’s Mark 46 Spiceology Flights

maker's mark 46 x epiceology flight


Maker’s Mark is one of our favorite bourbons, and its Maker’s Mark 46 is one of the brand’s most iconic expressions. It also happens to translate well to a spice blend. Maker’s Mark and Spiceology have collaborated on four spice blends, and one is directly inspired by Maker’s Mark 46, offering vanilla, caramel, and heat.

And because bourbon is a uniquely American spirit, the other three spice blends are inspired by what Spiceology has found to be America’s most beloved dishes: fried chicken, meatballs and potato salad. Everything Potato is described as a “herb spice blend”, Fried & True is described as an “umami chicken spice blend”, and Mom’s Meatballs is described as a “sweet and sour spice blend”.

Fly By Jing x Jacobsen Salt Co. Tingly Sichuan Salt

At this point, anything Fly By Jing posts is an immediate add-to-cart item for me. The condiment brand that brings the flavors of Sichuan to the masses has teamed up with one of the country’s top salt producers, Jacobsen Salt Co. on a Sichuan-inspired salt. The Sichuan spice is characterized by its numbing effect that gives a kind of tingling sensation to the tongue (it’s a delicious experience, I swear). New Tingly Sichuan Salt combines Fly By Jing’s Tribute Sichuan Peppers with hand-harvested kosher sea salt from Jacobsen Salt Co, and you can bet I’ll put this product on almost anything.

Fellow’s Carter Move mug gets an update: the Slide-Lock lid.
