We wondered how long it would be before some genius put together two of our most treasured pleasures – real coffee and the iPad.
And, sure enough, they have.
Ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding for the Godfather of all coffee machines – the amazing TopBrewer Coffee Machine.
The mass market now has the ultimate in coffee thrills – a hi-tech caffeinated rollercoaster for your kitchen.
As you’d expect from a new gadget combining the stylish elements of modern coffee shop with the ultra-smooth lines made famous by Apple Inc, this machine looks incredible.
And let’s be honest, if it’s not a cutesy reworking of antiquated ‘farmhouse chic’, anything that sits on kitchen counter in 2013 has to look extraordinary – there’s too much stuff to put on our work surfaces to suffer any kitchen tech without supermodel good looks.
There’s no worries about such details here though – the TopBrewer Coffee Machine by Scanomat might be a mouthful of a title but it is destined for big things.
So why is it such a big deal?
In a nutshell, because it works with your iPhone and/or iPad and even has its own app.
You can download the app to your iPad or iPhone and then – get this – you can remotely control all its functions.
On the loo but want a real freshly made espresso as soon as you get downstairs? No problem. Just select the appropriate function button on the app and when you get downstairs it is there waiting for you.
In a nutshell you press ‘Latte’ on your iPad Coffee app and this brilliantly beautiful device serves you a coffee-shop standard latte in seconds.
Downside? Buy one of these (they start at circa £5,000) and those of you without Magnet already in your home will need to upgrade the rest of your kitchen just to bring it up to spec with the coffee machine.
We want one.
