Bringing a Japanese take to the world of fine coffee making, Kinto is a company focused on providing a traditional expression of care and practicality alongside a devotion to dynamic aesthetics and artful design.
Kinto began its journey in 1972 as a wholesaler of ceramics and porcelain tableware products. Headquartered in Shiga, Japan, the company concentrated on distributing its Japanese-made tableware items throughout the nation.
During the mid-1990s, the company began to explore different types of kitchenware and dining-room products. By tapping into exactly what people require on a day to day basis, they soon understood what was needed. Using ideas designed to make life easier and more comfortable they found a stylish solution to balance practical concerns with beautiful design-work.
From 2009, the company started a world-wide exporting business, and today Kinto is well known as a provider of high-quality concept driven home products.
Here at Dotmaison we love the Kinto way of looking at things. The new range of coffeeware products available on the site showcase exactly the kind of traditional meets modern design that the brand is noted for. Take a look at the following to see what we mean:
The Pour Over Kettle is a fine example of Kinto’s skill at using the most elegant and smooth designs. The well balanced kettle benefits from a comfortable fitted handle, a spout with a slim pour control, and a top lid with secure hinges. Crafted from stainless steel and available in black or white, the kettle is a stylish way to start a coffee making adventure.
An exciting and different look for coffee preparation is wonderfully realised with the Slow Coffee Style Speciality Brewer 4 Cup Set. Made to sit on top of a Kinto mug or serving jug, the stand and set is easy to use and capable of producing a fine method brewing and filtering coffee. To use, simply put ground coffee into the funnel provided with freshly boiled water poured over. The slow drip then offers a coffee of excellent consistency.
The Speciality brewer is designed to be used alongside the Kinto Slow Coffee Style Speciality Brewer Stand to hold the filtering system in place. Created to provide a secure basis for the whole process, the stand is made from strong stainless steel, with an edged hoop for extra grip and a filly adjustable height.
Every coffee making process needs a cup at the end of the making. Kinto is no different in this respect.

The comfortable handle and matte metallic glaze provide a cost effect perfect for relaxing times. Holding 220ml, the coffee mug is a stylish wat to serve up a daily favourite.
