Park pouringBoca Raton, FL, December 20, 2017 – Epoca International has again been acknowledged as an award-winning manufacturer of innovative housewares products. Epoca has recently won two 2017 GOOD DESIGN awards for their Primula Park Pour Over Coffee Set and Primula Addison Tea Steeper.

The Park Pour Over Set offers a complete and stylish pour over system, featuring a differentiated design with an integrated handle- a feature that other products in this category don’t offer. Primula’s design was inspired by the lack of one piece pour over coffee sets in the pour over coffee category, so Primula created an all-in-one solution for pour over coffee in a sleek, streamlined design.


The Addison Tea Steeper was created with temperature safe borosilicate glass with a plastic protective holder, with easy cleaning as a main focal point in the design. The patent pending design features a lever for precise control, allowing users to control exactly how much liquid is dispensed. The Addison tea steeper is also incredibly easy to clean, because it’s top rack dishwasher safe. Primula has made it a point to create a tea steeper that gives the control to the tea maker, eliminating the mess other tea makers create.

“It is a great privilege to be recognized with not just one, but two GOOD DESIGN Awards,” stated Brian Melzer, President of Epoca International. “The Park Pour Over Set and the Addison Tea Steeper were important innovations for us, as we continuously look to offer products to create unique craft beverages at home. We are thrilled that our unique designs have been recognized and added to the accolades the products have received from customers across the country.”

According to their website, the GOOD DESIGN Awards, now in its 67th year, “is the oldest and the most prestigious Awards Program organized worldwide. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by the former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN honors the yearly achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and world manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence.”

Epoca International also won a GOOD DESIGN award in 2013 for the Primula Flavor It Infusion Pitcher, as well as a GOOD DESIGN award in 2016 for the Ecolution Micro-Pop microwave popcorn popper.
