The Q Dripper is the first ever coffee pour over designed and produced in the region and launched for the first time in Dubai as an initiative of The Q Lab.
As part of the Dubai Roadmap, The Q dripper will be produced using 3D printing technologies and therefore will be manufactured in Dubai.
The Q Dripper will also be produced in ceramic version in collaboration with local ceramic studios.
Designed and Produced by Dubai based design firm INDEX Design and designer Tariq Almadani and Industrial Designer Arash Afrasiabi, the Q Dripper will be the first coffee pour over tool to be designed and produced in the Arab World linking back the heritage of coffee back to its roots in the Arabian Peninsula.

Industrial designer Arash added" functionality of the dripper was very important so that coffee enthusiasts can enjoy their coffee being brewed on the Q dripper. The design was made to ensure that a consistent, flavorful, and balanced coffee will be brewed using the Q dripper. Many factors were considered to allow for the coffee to flow through the dripper and procedure the best coffee taste and the right extraction giving the coffee grounds the adequate space and then continue to drip as per the expected ratios".
