If you are the kind of person who always felt a touch of nostalgia toward the art of coffee making, you might be pleased to learn that Alpha Dominche’s Steampunk Coffee and Tea Brewer addresses this postmodern nostalgia towards the art of making coffee. The coffee machine is a combination of the old and the new, and it strikes the right note between an espresso machine and a computerized coffee maker. Baristas can try their hands at a variety of traditional tricks to make that perfect cup of espresso. One can adjust water temperature, agitation and water pressure with the help of metal filters to create that unique cup of coffee.
If you run out of ideas, the Alpha Dominche’s Steampunk Coffee and Tea Brewer also come with new coffee recipes which can be created at the touch of the screen. The Steampunk coffee maker can prepare almost 80 cups of coffee in an hour; where as a conventional French press requires at least 5 minutes to make a cup of coffee. While Steampunk 4.0 will be out sometime this year, the Steampunk MOD, which is a modular version of the same, will eventually be released. Steampunk MOD reduces the clutter by allowing baristas to configure their system themselves and comes in two- and four-crucible models. Steampunk coffee machine costs $15,000 and is a great gift for someone who loves coffee a lot.
