If you want "hidden" storage, put the hinges on each end and have each half of the table top fold out from the center. Everyone expects to see a seam in the center of a table. 99% won't even notice that, since it's pretty much a standard feature.
But that board down the center of the table is going to be a conversation starter. Then you'll want to tell everyone what a clever person you are and ... so much for "hidden".
However ... a four foot by four foot table that is belly high to most people is NOT a coffee table. Even dinner tables aren't usually that large. That's a HUGE table.
