Korean Designer Creates a Novel Coffee Cup Lid With Full Lips That Are All Puckered Up for a Kiss

Kiss 5

Korean industrial designer Jang WooSeok has created “Kiss When Coffee“, a wonderfully novel disposable coffee cup lid that features a protruding nose and big full lips that are all puckered up for a big kiss. The designer said that he “loves coffee and kisses” and wanted to combine the two.

I love both coffee and kisses. I always have coffee a day, but not a kiss. So I began to sketch the idea at the cafe. Funny, I imagined people have a pure joy when walking around kiss lid in hand. Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take ‘Kiss’ Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking. This is a disposable cup& lid for B2B (Cafe franchise) product. Polystylene Material. And It will produce first this week. There is only mouth on the lid to start with prototype. However I felt like there was something missing in our early design concept. I realized that touch the noses is essential point in order to feel realistically while i kissed. So I add the nose and face muscle to the lid. Finally, It has the lineaments of that of a Greek statue as well as a friendly face.

An Interview With Alan Adler, Inventor of the Aeropress Coffee Maker and Aerobie Flying Ring

In the latest installment of his inventor series, filmmaker and photographer David Friedman spoke with Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aeropress Coffee Maker and the Aerobie Flying Ring, about his love for finding new ways to do things.

Some inventions are just a better way to do something that’s already being done – an improvement on a product. Other inventions are pretty new and I would say that the Aeropress Coffee Maker is quite new. …When you look at the coffee brewing process, it’s interesting that it’s really just a succession of of shorter and shorter processes. A hundred years ago, people used to throw some grounds of coffee into a pot and boil it for as long as an hour. Whereas in 1950, there was quite a leap forward in coffee making called the “automatic drip machine” and it took about 5 minutes. The Aeropress cuts that time of 5 minutes down to about one minute.

A Scientific Explanation for Why Drinking Coffee Makes Some People Poop

A recent video by the American Chemical Society series Reactions ventures to explain the science behind why drinking coffee makes some people poop. Although scientists have looked into the matter, the process that leads about 30% of people from the coffee counter to the bathroom is not fully understood. The episode does explain the direct effects a few of the more than 1,000 compounds found in coffee have on the body, and more specifically the effect they have on the process of pooping.

A Wonderful Series of Beautifully Detailed Drawings Created From Coffee

Under the Same Umbrella
Under the Same Umbrella

Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar has created a wonderful series of detailed drawings that he made using coffee as his primary medium under the hastag #zerowastecoffee. Ghidaq spoke with Websta Diaries about how he started his coffee and latte art projects.

I am very “spoiled” when it comes to coffee. It’s not only my tongue having coffee but also my eyes enjoying it. So I began to make my own latte art, drew it as beautiful as I wanted it to be. From that moment, my adventure began. My #zerowastecoffee art started one morning when I was too lazy to make a milk foam (for etching my coffee). I went to the kitchen, made a cup of ground coffee. When I came to the bottom of the cup, I saw the grounds! I imagined Grim was there, a fictional creature from Harry Potter. My mind and hands began to work [on them], eventually impressing myself. Sometimes, you don’t need to think too much – just see and feel.
