Piamo: Your Espresso Maker for the Microwave
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.
Don’t forget to take a look at the video at the bottom to see how Piamo actually works.
