How lovely to have a fresh espresso on the go? Created by the Hong Kong company Wacaco, Minipresso is a cylindrical, all-in-one system that includes everything you’d need to brew a fresh cup.

Designed by Antoine Beynel, this innovative portable coffee maker concept “Daily Addict” is aptly named for those of us who need coffee wherever we are! First, add your coffee to the reusable filter and attach it to bottom cup/container portion. Then heat up your water in the cap portion of the coffeemaker by utilizing the integrated USB plug that can be connected to your laptop or a wall outlet. After water is boiled, screw it on the filter and let the water drain down. If you want, you can set the top 2 portions over a different cup or mug, letting you easily share with your fellow addicts! Sounds a pretty neat and economical way to have a cup of brewing coffee on the go.
Called Barisieur, this innovative alarm clock designed by Joshua Renouf will wake you up with a bespoke cup of coffee or tea at the moment you need it most. When it is close to alarm clock, the coffee maker will start to work. It will gradually wake you up with the subtle movement of stainless steel ball bearings that boil water via induction heating, accompanied by the smell of freshly brewed coffee or tea. Moreover, it also encourages a ritual before going to sleep – set up the machine, prepare the water, tea/cofee and sugar, siganlling to the body and mind that it is time to relax. How cool that is!
Piamo is an innovative design that creates a fresh cup of espresso within 30 seconds. All you need to do is to fill water into the water chamber and add a espresso pad or ground powder into the filter. Assemble it and place into the microwave and heat for 30 seconds at 800 watts. During the short 30 second, piamo takes advantage of heating to build up pressure and press water through the coffee. 30 seconds later, your fresh espresso is waiting for you. Right now, developed in partnership with design studio Lunar Europe, the Piamo has been through “several tiers of prototypes” and Meyl’s company gemodo coffee is currently raising money on the German crowd-funding website startnext to bring the product to market.
