If you’ve ever wanted to spend a cool $11,111 on a coffee machine and still have to push a plunger to get your damn coffee, you now can. Ex-NASA and Apple engineers, Jeremy Kuempel and Matt Walliser, along with designer Joey Roth, are behind this space age unit. The machine, dubbed Blossom One Limited, contains a computer that works to create a coffee specifically to the users’ liking. This includes: temperature, agitation, coffee to water ratio, and even how long the water is in contact with the coffee. Users are also able to scan QR codes and download brew recipes. Sounds pretty cool, but we think we’ll stick with our simple espresso machine.
