The Future is Here: Scanomat's Top Brewer Available for Apple Watch
Yesterday, an article posted to Facebook by interior designer Patrick Landrum prompted a conversation over coffee with a colleague pertaining to the overuse and diminishing value of certain once lofty descriptors in the marketing of products for sale. Sustainable. Luxury. Innovation. All have, at some point we both agreed, become overreaching buzz words in their over-use. It is rare to find a product on the market that are true examples of the semantics used to describe them.
A few years back, while trolling the floor of the Architectural Digest Home Show in New York (taking place this weekend), I happened across an appliance, to be more particular, a coffee delivery system that challenged the notion of the traditional coffee appliance. There simply was nothing on the market like it and, as a result, D'Scoop unofficially titled it our 2013 Appliance of the Year. The stunning machine that caught my attention (and the attention of countless other designers, architects, and media persona) was TopBrewer, the brainchild of Danish coffee systems developer Scanomat.
With only a clean, unadorned spout exposed above the surface of Purcell Murray's custom La Cornue island on display, TopBrewer left nearly everyone who saw it in awe of its Smart controls, drinks menu, and customizable options selectors operated exclusively from a user's iPad or iPhone. Not simply a novelty, TopBrewer's sophisticated under-counter machinery, integrating the smallest milk foamer in the world, a cleaning system that ensures all hoses are cleaned after every cup, and a steam generator, generates a perfect cup of Joe made to a user's precise specifications all with the convenience of not only iPad/iPhone "ordering" but also the elimination of an arsenal of counter-occupying professional equipment.
It truly was and is, an innovation in a market promoting traditional coffee delivery systems.
Another industry innovator, technology Goliath Apple, recently announced the introduction of their "game changing" Apple Watch and released that it would be available for public consumption late April 2015, bringing the same smart technology available as part of their iconic iPhone to a series of aesthetically pleasing and visually uncomplicated watches, making access to information and communication as simple as reaching for one's wrist. With the goal of promoting better relationships and a lifestyle where both hands are available for living the day to day, the Apple Watch promises to make technology a more personalized experience.
Similarly, Scanomat's goal in the development of TopBrewer had also been to promote better, more user-oriented, experiences with technology consumers encountered in their daily activities. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that Scanomat announced this past week that their QuickBrew app functionality would be made available for the Apple Watch, literally bringing the experience of ordering the perfect cup of coffee, be it an Americano or Espresso, within arm's reach. A few taps brings both the drink selection and option menus to a user's fingertips.
Now, the question begs to be asked. What is next for Scanomat's TopBrewer? And, of course, will a version for wine or cocktail delivery also be in the works?
