Coffee, a widely normalised drug. But why is coffee paraphernalia not indicative of its drug like attributes? What if coffee machines were representative of their addictive tendencies? Kaffekok embraces addiction and doesn’t hide from it.

Coffee. Prolonged use can cause anxiety, insomnia, and exhaustion. The beans contain hundreds of chemicals, including the powerful and well-known caffeine, an addictive chemical that is known to cause some negative health effects in people with heart disease, insomnia and anxiety. It also is rich in polyphenols which act as antioxidants that decrease inflammatory processes in the body. Coffee is a drug and should be used in moderation. So why don’t we treat it like one?

Kaffekok is an espresso machine that celebrates caffeine addiction.

Ideation & Sketches

Coffee addicts are the worst offenders when disposing of their coffee grounds, many pouring them down the sink or in the waste bin. Kaffekok combats this by offering a clean and simple ‘puck release’ for removing grounds, making compost disposal that bit easier. 

Kaffekok is a faster process than traditional home methods of brewing, since the user applies pressure to brew the coffee. For those fast and quick hits. The four glass syringes enable the user to brew a coffee for four people, a chance to show off their coffee making skills to friends.
