Precise Coffee Brewing With Automated Pourover Machine

Posted April 7, 2017

A real coffee snobs, or fans of a certain type of coffee, have always struggled to find the tools to brew the perfect cup at home. A team based out of New Mexico created a Perk Brew, a coffee machine that is able to maintain a uniform temperature and separate the coffee particles, rather than leaving them a clumpy, unequally-heated mess. It uses a mechanical suspension, that creates a gentle flow of water up through the infusion chamber at the top of the machine, creating a force to lift, separate and tumble each coffee particle in the same way.

The trick lies in a principle called “mechanical suspension.” Perk creates a gentle flow of water up through the infusion chamber at the top of the machine, creating a force to lift, separate and tumble each coffee particle in the same way. This helps to get the right amount of flavor from your chosen grounds. Unique boiler design helps to deliver more consistent temperature of water that is cooling as it drains.

The users can choose the temperature that is best for their beans and program it in using the capacitive buttons. To make maintenance easier, the creators designed the boiler to be opened, so you’ll never need to descale it.

The company launched a Kickstarter campaign and it seems to be funded. To see it in action watch a video below.
