To keep the coffeemaker from taking up all your counter real estate, the designers of this TopBrewer system arranged things so only a tap shaped in a graceful arc emerges from the surface to deliver both coffee and milk. All of the machines guts are hidden inside your island or underneath your countertop, including the refrigerator, heaters, grinders and brewers.
The machine heats water for each cup in just 45 seconds, delivers a cup of coffee in 15 seconds, and a shot of espresso in 25 seconds. In addition, the TopBrewer is self-cleaning and can be operated via the user’s iPhone or iPad.
The system is still spankin’ new, so the iPhone app has not yet been released, and the price has not been announced. However, you can bet it will be a hell of a lot more than most coffee lovers are willing to spend.
