If you were ever considering getting a high-end coffee maker, now is the time, as all of our favorite bean joints are likely on hiatus for the near future.
But it’s not like you can bring the baristas home with you as well, so who will recreate your intricate and precise coffee order?
Never fear—we’ve found some brainy brewing gadgetry that will have you whipping up espressos with ease.
What if making an espresso was as easy as turning on a faucet in your kitchen? That wonderful dream can be a reality. Featuring a sleek Danish design that recalls the classic faucet form, TopBrewer can be easily integrated into any kitchen space. But even better than its beauty is its brains. The TopBrewer, via its accompanying app, is able to pour a wide range of caffeinated beverages from americanos and macchiatos to cappuccinos and espressos, all at the tap of a button. And better still, users can dig in to their preferred drink type and set the exact ratio of coffee to milk and more, even saving their concoction as a drink preset for future use.
The TopBrewer Professional System is available for $15,545.
