    Now On Kickstarter, Arist Is A Barista In A Machine

    Arist wants to turn your kitchen into a cafe by brewing almost any coffee drink. Arist grinds beans and pour shots at the right time, and its smartphone app can remember your favorite drink recipes, find new ones, and finetune things like water temperature and syrup quantity. Arist can even remember certain coffee cups with the aid of an NFC sticker. Read More

    Encrypted To The Last Drop

    Everything is for sale in the dark web marketplaces. Anonymous buyers can procure everything from prescription painkillers to exotic designer drugs. You can hire sex workers and buy weapons in the same exchange. Danger lurks around every corner and Satoshis flow like water while whales make it rain on encrypted Tor gambling servers. Read More

    India’s TeaBox Raises Seed Funding From Accel To Build An Online Starbucks For Disrupting Global Tea Market

    In a world rediscovering its old tea drinking habits, finding a freshly-brewed cup of the hot beverage is still very tough, especially if you are a tea aficionado based in the U.S. or Europe. For the world’s second most popular beverage after water, the distribution and production models are still very ancient, perhaps waiting for their own version of Starbucks to happen. Now TeaBox… Read More

    Philz Coffee Raises Eight-Figure Round From Summit, Angels, As Specialty Coffee Market Heats Up

    I’ve found that when people visit San Francisco, it’s not unusual to hear them ask something like: “No seriously, is there a coffee shop on every block in this city?” Yes, San Francisco likes coffee. So do a lot of cities. Busy people thrive on coffee, especially in the tech industry. In fact, some would even say that a substantial amount of coffee is an essential… Read More

  • Gift Guide: Krups EA82 Automatic Coffee/Espresso Maker

    Gift Guide: Krups EA82 Automatic Coffee/Espresso Maker

    People like coffee. People like coffeemakers. People like coffeemakers that make great coffee. That’s why you should look into the EA82, Krups’ fanciest coffee maker, an all-automatic espresso and long coffee maker that makes a nearly perfect cup with your own beans nearly every time. It’s probably one of the best home, push-button coffee makers I’ve ever used. Read More

  • Review: Krups EA82 Automatic Espresso Maker Makes You Love To Love It

    Review: Krups EA82 Automatic Espresso Maker Makes You Love To Love It

    I was about to add this coffee maker (excuse me: espresso maker) to the Luddite gift guide but instead I felt it deserved special mention. As a fan of pod-based coffee-makers, I love almost everything about the EA82 – except its price. This thing is a dense block of coffee-creation goodness. Operation is simple – add some water, whole beans, and a cup. You select the type of… Read More

  • This Sexy Coffee Gadget Probably Won’t Ever Exist

    This Sexy Coffee Gadget Probably Won’t Ever Exist

    What is it? A laser cutter? A mod photo enlarger? A microscope? A tattoo remover? Nope, it’s a coffee maker, but an extremely svelte coffee maker. In fact, I imagine this little Nespresso-friendly caffeine inducer would look pretty sweet in your typical “ice hotel” or ad agency lobby. Clearly, we’ve come a long way since days of yore when a Cuisinart was enough you get… Read More

  • Kone 2: Non-Electric Roastaroo

    All right, so the headline is kind of a stretch. Let’s just say mistakes were made, and move on, yeah? You might have heard about the Kone, a metal replacement for paper coffee filters. It’s been making waves over the last year or so, but no product is perfect (even a perforated metal cone), and they’ve made some changes to the hardware that I’m pretty excited about. Read More

  • Stovetop Espresso Goes To The Dark Side

    I was perusing NotCot’s roundup of non-electric coffee gear and spotted Darth Stovetop here. I talked about this old-school method of making espresso here (delicious and difficult), but in case you like your coffee and your coffee-maker black, this one from Valira might be right up your alley. At €36.50 it’s rather more than its Bialetti equivalent, and replacement parts might… Read More

  • Kickstarter: Coffee Joulies Are Temperature Regulators For Your Java

    Some people love the hot coffee. Love the hot. People order their americanos “extra hot” so the baristas will put out water at higher than the 180 degrees they aim at. Madness! Personally, I have to let it cool down a bit — but ideally, you want to drink the coffee as soon as possible to get the full flavor. Enter the Coffee Joulie. Read More
