Square Coffee

I’m in love with this electric kettle serving set called Friend’s Coffee. The designer wanted to keep it simple and tame the design aesthetics of traditional hot drink sets. The result is a monolithic design; a kettle and 4 serving mugs all set on a large load tray. The tray can be unplugged at anytime to be properly served from. Beautiful design.


Designer: Cohen Roey

    nice! especially how you placed the pot over the cups. but how to take the cups out of the holder? you'll be touching the inside of the cups to do that.

    There's a good reason cups / mugs etc are round. Have you ever tried drinking from a straight edged vessel?

    • anon says:

      Yes, many traditional sake cups are square and you drink from the corner, not the straight edge. The real problem is the lack of handle on the cups to mitigate the heat radiating from the cup to the user.

      • Tom says:

        There is also the issue of cleaning square edged vessels. It is extremely difficult to get into the corners to clean them properly, especially with a cup this small.

    Before pouring coffee, You should get the glasses out of the "box".
    just like in outdoors coffee set,
    first, you get the glasses out of the bag and then pour coffee for everyone.

    there are alot of mugs without handles, People do not get burn so fast…
    You can hold the top of the mug.

    • anon says:

      Disagree entirely – I drink lots of tea and the handleless cup always burns my fingertips. Just because you have calloused fingers doesn't mean the rest of humanity does as well. The only handleless cup I've ever seen that does not burn my finger tips is the Radiator Mug shown previously:
