Top 100 Kitchen Trends in 2018

From Small-Batch Bean Roasters to No-Mess French Presses

— January 12, 2019 — Art & Design
From pint-sized bean grinders to mess-free French presses, the 2018 kitchen trends reveal a major change in the way consumers prepare their daily cup of joe.

While previous years have been dominated by single-serve coffee makers and flavored coffee pods, the 2018 kitchen trends reveal that consumers are willing to take longer to brew their coffee if it means a better cup. Indeed, products such as the Rite Press and the Palmpress Single Serve Coffee Press demonstrate that consumers are willing to use longer and more labour intensive brewing methods to extract the perfect cup of coffee.

This is also true when it comes to grinding beans, which is now easier to do at home thanks to devices like the Coffee Boy, which can be used to grind up your choice of beans to the optimal consistency.

To learn more about kitchen innovations for the year ahead, check out our 2019 Trend Report.
