Scanomat Top Brewer ~ The Coffee Faucet

Coffee, a necessity of life for many, may be plentiful and readily available.  Imagine, however, the ability to dispense your coffee out of a faucet.  Well, that time is here with the Scanomat Top Brewer. 

Why wait for coffee?  The Top Brewer only takes 15 seconds to brew a filter coffee, producing up to 4 cups of coffee per minute, and only 25 seconds for espresso.  

At first glance the spigot looks like a water faucet.  However, upon further review you question why a water faucet would be mounted in that particular place, especially without a sink to go with it, and without knobs or handles to turn the water on and off. The beautiful, stainless steel tap is designed to be built in any tabletop. 

The Scanomat Top Brewer consolidates all the coffee making gadgets - grinder, espresso machine, foamer, whizzanozzle, you name it - below the  counter and out of sight. All you see is a minimalist bend of pipe and a small grate to catch the overage.

The undercounter installation hides a multitude of components that allow for a variety of coffee drinks to be made on demand, including espresso drinks.  Yes, it stores and froths milk (essential for a foamy cappucino or a creamy latte).  Beans are ground and utilized according to what drink is selected (from either the touch-screen interface or a compatible phone or tablet) and then delivered, via the faucet, for exceptionally fast beverage service.

You will need to refill the beans and/or milk supply.  However, no cleaning required.  The automated cleaning cycle is certainly a step into the future. Coffee on demand and self-cleaning...that's progress.

Non-coffee drinkers in the house?  The Scanomat Top Brewer also dispenses hot chocolate, water, milk and juice.  

Scanomat, located in Denmark, has been one of the world's leading & most innovative companies in the manufacturing and sales of professional coffee machines to the Out Of Home coffee market for 50 years.  Their range of coffee machines, coffee products and services are now available internationally. Whatever your premium hot beverage requirements, Scanomat will have a first class solution to meet your needs now and in the future.

Aloha @Jef.

When the product was announced, there wasn't a release date or price announced. I do remember reading somewhere that the speculated cost was 5,000 Euros (approx. 6,300 USD). I just did a quick search and it doesn't appear that it has yet been released or a price announced.

I will keep checking - let us know if you find additional information.
