In the infinitely hi-tech world we live in, you can’t swing a kettle without hitting a new kitchen product promising to make our culinary lives smoother. Your average aid will shake, stir and sieve without breaking a sweat, which means to get us gadget junkies really excited it takes something really special.
People, behold the Topbrewer coffee faucet by Scanomat… a thing of such beauty that the accompanying video left me open-mouthed and craving its frothily-dispensed caffeine in a way that Starbucks could never hope to.
This first-of-its-kind, swan-necked tap will fit into any worktop and effortlessly serve a perfect cup of the good stuff anytime one should desire. Amongst other innovative design features, it has an adjustable height to accommodate which ever vessel you fancy (though a vase is probably pushing it), has the world’s smallest milk foamer built into its tip, is made from 80% recyclable parts and shuts down between use making it green with a capital ‘g’.
As if this wasn’t enough, it’s also integrated with a finger touch keyboard, as well as via the Apple App store, so that the customer can choose their favoured beverage, order and then pay for it via their iPhone or iPad – making it an enviable accessory for apple and technology lovers alike.
This wondrous machine is bought to you by the clever people that gave us the world’s first automatic coffee machine in 1985 (aka the year I was born) and have been busy perfecting their bean-to-cup delivery ever since. Just magic.
