Redditors Can’t Stop Raving About This Minimalist Japanese Home Brand
They say it "sparks joy."
In recent years, fans of Marie Kondo and her meticulous clothes-folding methods have flocked to Reddit. In fact, the "konmari" community page on Reddit has collected more than 70,000 followers who trade organizing tricks, decluttering ideas, and tips for a minimalist, functional home. Sharing photos of their own homes and recent finds, Redditors often post images of what "sparks joy" for them, whether that's a tidy shower caddy or a dreamy vanity. Last month, one image in particular, a photo of a serene coffee station, took off on the platform, receiving more than 1,600 up-votes.
Posted with the simple caption "this sparks joy," the comments and questions quickly started to flow in. One question on many Redditors minds: Where did you find that adorable pour over coffee maker and travel mug? The answer: Kinto, a Japanese home brand you've likely never heard of, but that is readily available on Amazon. It turns out that Redditors are singing the praises of Kinto products on several threads on the site, particularly whenever the best pour over coffee maker or the best travel mug is being debated.

Finding the perfect travel mug that looks good, won't leak, and fits into your bag is a challenge. But many Redditors think they've found it in the Kinto travel tumbler. The double wall design helps keep drinks cold, and it comes in several colors, including this classic white and gray combo.

The one Kinto product Redditors can't stop talking about, the brand's glass pour over coffee maker creates an Instagram-worthy morning routine. With a stylish glass carafe, it's the kind of coffee maker you'll want to leave out on the counter and present to guests when they stop by.

In addition to sleek, minimalist tumblers and travel mugs, Kinto also stocks cute and quirky coffee mugs, like this playful bunny design. The adorable rabbit, fawn, and fox designs make charming gifts—but you'll probably want to keep at least one for yourself.

Most rice cookers aren't an appliance you'd proudly want to leave on display in your kitchen—but then again, most rice cookers aren't Kinto's beautiful ceramic option. The streamlined design makes this a piece worth investing in.
