Coffee machines are just about as common as, well, a coffee bean.  Traditionally speaking you grind the coffee, place it in a filter, add water and wait patiently for it to percolate, producing the caffeinated beverage billions of people love every morning.   But that method is oh-so pedestrian.

Next time you have guests over you can impress them with the Scanomat’s Top Brewer.  It’s an under the counter coffee machine that grinds then brews each individual cup of joe.  Control comes by way of a smartphone, though it’s not an absolute necessity as there is some sort of counter top keyboard, but nothing will beat dialing in a cup of coffee on your iPhone only to have it appear literally before your guest’s eyes.

On the counter sites a spout that delivers the hot beverage, while just below it is a drain for washing away excess, such as drips and spills.  The spout can also deliver foamed milk, so cappuccinos can happen entirely on their own.

Adding to it’s “wow” quotient is the ability to brew a cup of coffee in 15 seconds, two grinders so you can produce different types of coffee one after the other without any delay, a zero watt standby mode and a machine that is made from 80% recycled parts.

If you want you can download the app from the iTunes stores and checkout it before you drop what will probably be thousands of dollars on this high end coffee machine – unfortunately, we don’t know the price and their website is currently down.
