Milk Design's HAND collection features a coffee dripper, glass carafe, wooden-lidded kettle, and trio of mugs in pink, dark blue and light blue.

The mugs feature slightly tapered sides and sturdy handles, while the double-walled glass carafe protects users' hands from hot coffee.

The set's cone-shaped copper-coloured wire dripper has been designed to hold paper filters, and rests neatly in the top of the carafe. Angled spokes keep the filter in place, while a small tab on the side allows it to be removed when brewing is finished.

"You can control the speed and temperature perfectly with the HAND dripper as it is not easily blocked by coffee powder," said Toast Living. "The coffee flavour made by this dripper is light and balanced."

The HAND kettle is also copper-coloured, and features a circular wooden lid with a hole in the centre, a slender curved spout and an oblong metal handle that is half covered in wood.

"The thin spout is not only elegant but also enables water to flow slowly and predictably throughout the kettle even with a small amount of water," said the brand.

A somewhat more premium copper coffee set was recently launched by British designer Tom Dixon, created to "perfect every stage of the coffee ritual".

More unusual coffee-related design includes Memphis Group founding member Michele de Lucchi's ribbed aluminium moka for Alessi, and German designer Julian Lechner's cups that were created from a blend of recycled coffee grounds and natural glues.
