From the carafe series CAPSULE, KINTO is launching the new cold brew carafe.
The lid of CAPSULE opens automatically when the bottle is tipped, allowing you to

lets you easily make delicious cold brew coffee and tea. It will become available in

Cold brew is a method of brewing coffee beans or tea leaves with cold water over
several hours. Compared to brewing with hot water, oxidization occurs more slowly
in cold water, and less tannin and caffeine are extracted that usually gives the bitter
taste. With the CAPSULE cold brew carafe, delicious cold brew coffee and tea can be
made in simple steps; place grounded coffee beans or tea leaves into the attached
filter, fix the inner and outer lids, add water, and let it steep. Enjoy the milder taste and
the unique flavors of cold brew.

Designer’s Comment
CAPSULE's most notable feature is that you can
pour out from any direction just by tipping the carafe
and without turning the lid. I aimed to design an
intuitive and honest form that allows user to imagine
the easy pour of water. While simple in appearance,
the design is a fruit of countless detailed studies and
creative considerations on the size of various parts,
specification of the spindle, and production method.
This time, I was asked to upgrade the original
CAPSULE launched in 2013 so that it can be used
to make cold brew coffee and tea. In doing so, the
intuitive and honest form was an essence I definitely
wanted to maintain. It was a challenge to achieve
both functionality and aesthetic elegance, but in
working closely with the KINTO product development
team and exchanging ideas, I think we found the
solution. The evolution of CAPSULE reflects people's
increasing love for specialty coffee and tea. It is
designed with a lot of thought, so that it can be used
without any thought.
