    Danish company Scanomat has introduced the TopBrewer, an iPhone-controlled coffee faucet. The tap is part of an advanced brewing system that can be built into any tabletop.

    The company has patented the world's smallest milk foamer which heats milk on-demand and foams it to the correct texture. The brewer cleans itself after each cup, and can dispense drinking water, cold or hot milk, steam, or a wide variety of coffee drinks; all of which can be ordered up from an iOS app or a touch-screen panel built into the tabletop.
    Scanomat has not released pricing or availability information, but the TopBrewer appears to be aimed at offices and high-end luxury homes.

    The deviceis awesome but the iPhone bit is pointless! You have to go place your cup so why start the coffee on the phone instead of using the touchpad?!

    Not really. Put a cup on the machine before you go to bed. When you wake up, grab your iPhone, use the app to start brewing, and by the time you get to the kitchen there's a fresh coffee waiting for you :)

    No kidding...:rolleyes:


    You know that iOS is big when car manufacturers and now coffee makers promote their products as "being compatible with iDevices"...

    Not a big coffee drinker, but the more things in my life clean themselves, the better!

    Platinum-level mindshare is pretty much the Holy Grail in terms of brand-building.

    Too bad I already planned to spend my money for a two-groups Adonis Victoria Arduino for my future office.

    What do you want to bet that that the "self-cleaning" can malfunction? That you will eventually open up something and find all kinds of things growing in it? Coffee stuff always gets messy and brown.

    Try applying for a job at Scanomat - they ship a barista inside every TopBrewer.

    That looks like a pretty elegant product, but I'm not sure how useful the iOS app is...

    At least this Scanomat product produces something that would appear to taste good.

    Their machine for Nestle's freeze dried coffee product is horrible. Probably because it uses Nestle freeze dried coffee.

    I like the fresh beans and the fact that it can clean itself for the most part. Trying to clean some of their other machines is a pain in the a-zass.
