Summer time is refreshing and inviting to go out. Many people will be out having fun and drinking cocktails. However, now going out to have a cocktail is not necessary and neither are skills and knowledge to make one. Bartesian is a cocktail machine that makes delicious drinks in seconds, without many ingredients or recipes. As creators say, it is ‘cocktails liberated’.
Bartesian is a cocktail machine that works with capsules. Currently there are only six cocktails – Margarita, Sex on the beach, Cosmopolitan, Bartesian Breeze, Uptown Rocks and Zest Martini – but this number will grow as machine will grow more popular.
Creators said that they asked cocktail experts to develop contents of the capsules for the drinks to taste truly authentic, exactly how an expert cocktail mixer would make them. It is also worth mentioning that there are no artificial powders or high-glucose corn syrup in these capsules – they contain liquid form of fresh juice concentrates, non-alcoholic liqueurs and bitters. This allows for delicious quality cocktails every time. Capsules themselves are recyclable to make the device just that little bit more environmentally friendly.
Of course, liquors are involved in the process of making these cocktails. There are four glass reservoirs of the basic spirits: vodka, rum, tequila, and gin. There is no need of changing, adding or mixing anything in these reservoirs – capsules take care of everything else. You just need to choose your desired cocktail from your capsule collection, scan the barcode from it to give the machine the needed information to remember the recipe, choose strength for the cocktail and let Bartesian do the job.
The cocktail machine has very simple, three button interface with small screen with all information you need. For example, what kind of glass should be used and if you need ice with it. Bartesian really is machine with easy maintenance, which will become the bartender of your home.
The last thing to do is, of course, cleaning. And it could not be any easier. Creators of the Bartesians say that it is as easy as taking out the capsule tray, rinsing it under warm water and popping it back into the machine. The glass reservoirs only contain alcohol, which means they do not have to be washed constantly. But when time comes to clean them, you can simply put them in dishwasher. It cannot be much simpler than that.
Bartesian also features simple yet elegant design to become an integral part of your kitchen, mancave or bar. It features simple geometric shape with welded steel enclosure and simple bar-runner drip tray. As cocktail shaker is an iconic part of making these drinks, one comes with each Bartesian to make you look like professional.
Having your own bartender at home seems to be a nice dream of many and Bartesian allows for this dream to become reality. Of course, this is not a device for everyone as not all people enjoy alcohol beverages. Also, going out is part of fun while having cocktails.
However, currently campaign page for Bartesian on Kickstarter is doing pretty well. It has 54% of its $54,518 pledged goal already funded with 23 days of campaign left. Summer time and appealing features of the machine should help it reach its goal pretty soon. It is also an example how innovative and inventive these times are.
