iOs-controlled TopBrewer coffee maker is a thing to behold
"Rejoice, o ye iPhone and iPad-toting coffee addicts with fat wallets! Just when you thought that there was nothing new under the sun to create the perfect cup of joe, Scanomat brings the Top Brewer to the market.
The Top Brewer is a high-end coffee machine that uses an iOS app to control brewing. Most of the hardware for the brewer is hidden under a countertop, meaning that all you see is a spigot, a drain, and a touch panel for those times when your coffee jitters have caused you to drop your iPhone.
This may be the start of something big. Perhaps your local coffee shop will install a team of Top Brewers and let you order your coffee drink just the way you like it from your iPhone or iPad while you stand in line to pay for the beverage. There's no price tag for the Top Brewer yet, but it's probably going to be targeted at high-end homes and to the hospitality industry."

Mashable - Brewing your morning coffee is about to get easier
"Scanomat’s TopBrewer is a cutting-edge coffee machine compatible with an iPhone or iPad that is unlike others on the market. The TopBrewer features an elegant tap made of stainless steel that is designed to be built into any tabletop – all you need is two small holes in the module for the tap and drain. This cuts down on counter space and creates a unique coffee-brewing experience.
In addition, the device comes with the smallest-ever milk foamer featured on a coffee machine. As cold water heats up on demand, chilled milk is pumped to the foamer and steamed to create a textured foam suitable for a cappucino or lattee.
The app — now available for download via the Apple iTunes Store — allows you to customize your order, from selecting the size of the coffee you want (small or large) to the type such as as espresso and cappuccino. The app also displays the machine’s temperature and provides status messages throughout the brewing process.
Although the app isn’t required, it gives mobile users an easier way to get their coffee started.
Without an iPhone or iPad? You can still make a cup of joe by using the touchscreen keyboard built into TopBrewer tabletop."
"There's no question that we love our coffee, but we're often far less intrigued by the brewing process than we are the result. With its incredibly sleek design and simple iPhone or iPad control, Scanomat's faucet-like TopBrewer could easily become one of the few exceptions, however. This fully automatic coffee machine grinds your beans, measures out ingredients and foams milk, before dishing out the perfect cup. But iOS control is the keystone of this elegant solution, letting you make your beverage selection from a wireless device, leaving nothing but the stainless steel tap exposed. Craving a cappuccino? Simply toss your cup under the spigot and tap an icon. You can also dispense cold milk or water, hot chocolate and even carbonated water -- all from the same head. Scanomat has yet to hint at a release date or price, but if you have to ask... Jump past the break for a quick taste, courtesy of some lucky folks at a hospitality industry expo in Milan."
