Chemex recently dropped a surprise coffeemaker announcement into the laps of lazy caffeine lovers: the Ottomatic. The machine simplifies the process by managing some of the variables that make Chemex brewing challenging. The Ottomatic has the same hourglass shape and controls pre-infusion, contact time of water to coffee, heating the water properly, and the temperature of the hot plate.
The product’s Greedy Cup Sprayhead Technology adds extra touches such as:
• Staged brewing cycle
• Pulsing water bath which ensures maintained temperature
• Wetting of entire coffee bed
• Facilitating even extraction
The Ottomatic is available for pre-order and will begin shipping in January.
See more photos and a video showing the Ottomatic in action after the break.
