TopBrewer: Make a cup of coffee using your smartphone!

Smartphones have come a long way since the days of Snake and physical keyboards (although Blackberry, you stay strong). As technology continues to evolve at such a rapid pace, we gradually become less and less surprised at exactly what it can achieve. Startup campaigns are able to gather more pace than ever before thanks to the likes of Kickstarter and Indiegogo and a host of other crowd-funding sites that serve as a platform for the dreamers of the world to bring their ideas to life, blowing the minds of millions along the way.

We’ve come across one such development that seems to have taken the world by storm in recent months. Introducing the TopBrewer by the brilliant minds at Scanomat, the tap that lets you make a cup of coffee using your smartphone. This is one of the more incredible developments in smartphone integration, combining elegant design with innovative genius. Let’s take a quick look at exactly how it works.

The TopBrewer is designed in a manner that lets you fit it pretty much anywhere in your kitchen with a simple mounting bracket that ensures easy accessibility. Water flows through an isolated pipe within the TopBrewer to ensure the ideal temperature. The perfect latte, however, requires perfectly steamed milk, so how did Scanomat get over that obvious obstacle? Well, as stated on their website, “We have patented the smallest milk foamer in the world. The foamer is installed at the very tip of the coffee tap. Fresh milk is heated “on demand” and foamed to the correct texture.” Ah, well that explains it then!

TopBrewer can be controlled from both Android and Apple devices in a seamless manner, simply swiping to reach your desired levels of each ingredient to make the perfect beverage. And this machine doesn’t solely focus on coffee either, no sir. The TopBrewer is able to dispense both still and sparkling water, fresh juice, hot chocolate and boiling water for that much needed cup of tea.
