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.
Envision being able to control your coffee machine with a device you already have in your pocket. With TopBrewer this is made possible with our smartphone application for your iPhone.

Quickly connect to the machine and select from the available drinks - or have your own favorite coffee pre-programmed and dispense it just the way YOU like it.

The app gives you full control of the machine and displays status messages when woken up from standby till it's ready to brew.

Have complete control of your TopBrewer and experience a new sensation when selecting your coffee. You can even explore our model lineup and order more coffee when you run out.
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 :)

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

No kidding...:rolleyes:


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

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.

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.
