Kaffekok Coffee Machine
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.

Coffee is a drug and should be used in moderation. So why don’t designers treat it like one? This is an espresso machine that celebrates caffeine addiction.
