    I had a laugh in the ad you only see about 5 secs of actual coffee......

    once at the 11 sec mark for .5 sec and right at the end (but not sure that was coffee)

    i noticed you could order a cold chino on the touch screen....... mmmmm tasty

    Great idea for interaction/meetingplace for a workplace with attitude.. but alas it seems more suited to a games arcade then as a coffee station.. watched the video twice and still looking for the coffee...

    I suppose the design does have potential in the right hands.

    Internal Robur E and La Maz with pressure Profiling

    Internal Hario Syphon

    Temperature controlled bean containers that hold daily delivered SO beans from a specialty micro roaster (various different roast profiles for each bean of course)

    Then on the touch screen you could blend your own espresso or filter etc. - choose your water temp and pressure profile.

    Theres a rather vulgar idiom to describe this concept, but ill take the high ground and suggest that this is akin to beautifully gift wrapping a piece of trash.

    You can dress it up as much as you like, but itll always remain trash.
