Before the invention of the coffee machine, people drank “slow coffee”. Today, people most commonly drink coffee made by a machine. The way we drink coffee is quite linear; using single-use filters and paper cups is an unnecessary consumption of paper resources.

Slow Coffee Table provides a space to make coffee in the traditional way, making the preparation process more like a ceremony. Most importantly, the preparation here is cyclic. A metal coffee filter is used instead of a paper filter, the rinser under the faucet makes cleaning more convenient and thus encourages the use of reusable cups. Slow Coffee Table also contains a collection container for coffee grounds, which can be composted.
