& Drip is a coffee maker that aims to taste the first coffee shop in Coca-Cola Japan. The coffee can be reproduced as if the master of the coffee shop was hand-drip with a single touch.

& N Drip was supervised by “nendo” led by global designer Ooki Sato. The point is a stylish design that matches the bookshelf at home. The design says that they want to relax and have a coffee in the living room, rather than having a quick coffee in the kitchen.
According to Reiko Fujii, Project Lead Senior Manager, New Business Development Headquarters, Coca-Cola Japan “Coffee beans are the type of roasting, or the optimal temperature and amount of hot water differ depending on the type of beans. I tried and tried the temperature and quantity. " & Drip capsules can be seen in various ways.
It's surprising that coffee beans, filters, drippers, all these elements are contained in small capsules. The capsule material is a barrier material that protects delicate beans from oxidation and draws out a rich fragrance, and the oxygen concentration is kept below 1%.
It is a mechanism that keeps coffee beans in the optimum state until the moment when you press the & Drip button. If you look closely at the capsule, there is a groove on the side. It is a mechanism that uses this groove to extract coffee by swirling like a hand drip. It is said that it can extract the full flavor and sweetness of coffee.
The capsule lineup is

・ Latte [coffee, milk]
・ Darjeeling tea scheduled to be released in February 2020
