Inspired by the idea of merging portability with elegance, this Drip Pod Youbi is a capsule-type coffee machine featuring subtle curves within a square shape.

The coffee machine doesn’t just prioritize functionality; it also boasts a modern style. The slender handle, positioned above the LCD panel, not only facilitates easy carrying but also allows ample light to illuminate the controls. Horizontal piping contributes not only to the minimalist design but also enhances the tactile feel of the lid and removable parts, creating a seamless user experience.
While designed for capsules, it is a versatile coffee maker that accommodates ground coffee as well. Thanks to a specially designed filter that fits inside the capsule holder, users can enjoy the flexibility of using their preferred coffee grounds.
