Designer ‘Scott ‘ observed that the coffee and tea drinkers at the hawker center in Singapore were served their ‘teh’ (tea) or ‘kopi’ (coffee) in local styled cups, sans saucers. The problem with this is that the beverage is served using condensed milk, which is heavy and settles at the bottom of the cup. As a result the coffee-drinker has to stir the drink several times, and this gets annoying since they have no sanitary place to put down their spoon, and have to place it inside their cup.
The NOTA Coffee Mug allows the user to keep the spoon within their cup, tucked into a niche. This ways the coffee drinker gets to enjoy their drink without the spoon annoying them. Simple and clever!
