I love coffee, I need it to start my day, or else I simply refuse to start my day! It’s the boost of energy, dose of motivation, and rush of serotonin that I need every morning. And, I’m pretty sure that’s the case for most of us. There is a different satisfaction and pleasure in sipping caffeine that you know is the result of your own hard work, something precariously prepared with your own personal touch to it. And if you’re someone who’s chasing that feeling, then a unique, innovative, and interactive coffee machine is all you need, and ninety-five percent of the battle is won (the other five percent is you setting aside your laziness and actually operating the machine)! From a warm and gentle capsule coffee machine to the Tesla of coffee machines – this collection of super cool and easy-to-use coffee machines will start you off on your coffee brewing journey. Cheers!

1. xBloom

The futuristic xBloom was dubbed the Tesla of Coffee Machines by our Editor-in-Chief, and rightfully so since it is the first coffee machine with a unique Autopilot feature that assists you in the art of making coffee. The super sleek and pristine coffee machine looks right out of a sci-fi future!

Why is it noteworthy?

Designed by ex-Apple employees, the xBloom identifies, grinds, dispenses, brews, and pours your coffee for you! It uses some of the finest beans sourced from the top roasters worldwide, providing you with the finest cup of coffee ever.

What we like

  • It quite literally feels as if a professional barista made you a cup of coffee
  • Equipped with the power of NFC technology

What we dislike

  • The xBloom does not accommodate instant coffee

2. Steampunk Espresso Machine

Ahmet Kemal Daşhan designed the Steampunk Espresso Machine for Steam Espresso. The unique espresso machine is adorned with brass fittings that invite you to embark on a journey through time.

Why is it noteworthy?

Exposed gears, reminiscent of a bygone era’s mechanical marvels, not only serve their functional purpose but also add a touch of authenticity to the experience. Vintage aesthetics, carefully curated to transport you back in time, create an ambiance that is nothing short of enchanting.

What we like

  • Helps you embark on a visual journey through time

What we dislike

3. DOTS

DOTS is a portable coffee machine that works specifically for automated vehicles but can be utilized in other on-the-go scenarios as well. The portable coffee machine is an excellent option for those long car journeys!

Why is it noteworthy?

It has a removable bottom so it can adapt to whatever or wherever you’re using it for. It also uses coffee capsules instead of the usual brewing method to make it easier to use.

What we like

  • A control or lever lets you adjust the intensity of the extraction method from the capsule

What we dislike

  • It has a lid to place a straw on it, but sipping hot coffee with a straw seems weird and uncomfortable

4. POCO

This compact and lightweight device is called POCO: Portable capsule coffee machine. And, you can simply slide it into your back or backpack along with the coffee pods, making it the perfect coffee maker on the go for coffee lovers.

Why is it noteworthy?

It’s rechargeable using a USB-C: You can charge it on the go using your laptop or a portable charger. This makes it an ideal device for people who are always on the move.

What we like

  • Features a built-in thermal insulation function
  • Allows you to enjoy coffee anytime and anywhere

What we dislike

  • Since it’s a concept we don’t know how functional and credible it will be as an actual product

5. The CJ

Italian industrial designer Odo Fioravanti was commissioned by Espresso machine manufacturer Moak to create an eye-catching coffee machine that is minimal, modernist, and brutalist!

Why is it noteworthy?

Called the CJ (Coffee Jockey), the coffee machine includes various geometric shapes that have been bundled up together to create a design that is simple and beautiful. It has a soft pastel color which imparts the espresso machine with a classy and refined look.

What we like

  • You can actually put two coffee cups in front and get two sizable espresso shots out of one process, getting you more coffee in one go

What we dislike

  • The design is for Moak and promises a new coffee blend and capsule system that is not shown yet, so we cannot speak on its functionality

6. Kreis Cup

The Kreis Cup is a sustainable and durable coffee cup created to elevate and enhance your coffee-drinking experience! It is a reusable cup made from used coffee grounds and plant-based materials and is completely free of petroleum-based plastics.

Why is it noteworthy?

It is heat resistant and meant to keep your coffee hot longer. It is biodegradable, and it quickly disintegrates into the soil, leaving nothing behind, once it reaches the end of its lifespan.

What we like

  • Made from spent coffee grounds that have been dried, treated, and then suspended in a natural, plant-based polymer
  • It has the faint, unmistakable scent of coffee

What we dislike

  • There is currently no scope for personalization

7. Woolly Capsule Coffee Machine

Dubbed the Woolly capsule coffee machine concept, this coffee machine has a soft and approachable aesthetic and is made up of straight lines and a muted color palette.

Why is it noteworthy?

The coffee machine consists of wooden panels and metallic accents that contrast interestingly against the textured plastic surface of the body, creating a unique composition that is appealing to the eyes.

What we like

  • Soft and friendly aesthetic, unlike the typical daunting coffee machines we come across
  • Features embedded touch-sensitive buttons on the panel that take interaction to the next level

What we dislike

  • A wooden body and coffee-stained fingers may disrupt the aesthetics of the machine

8. Breeze Coffee Machine

The Breeze Coffee Machine is designed by South Korean coffee brand Dongsuh and it is a unique capsule coffee machine with a twist. It features a refreshing soft color palette with white, charcoal, and pink variants.

Why is it noteworthy?

The coffee machine features a ridged surface wrapped around the base, which contrasts with the smoother texture of the head. The tall water tank at the back complements the subdued hues of the machine, sending a message of calm.

What we like

  • The design includes a more tactile interface to operate the machine, using clearly marked LED-backlit buttons at the top of the head

What we dislike

  • It’s a capsule-based coffee machine but there is no knowledge shared on how to make the process reduce wastage or make it more sustainable

9. Muuto

Designed by PDF Haus, Muuto is a minimalist matte coffee maker built from ceramic steel, that can be operated and used with the click of a single button.

Why is it noteworthy?

This minimalist coffee maker has a simple, no-frills design. It is intuitive by design and features a single button to kickstart the entire operation. The button is an easy-click power key placed on Muuto’s main rounded chamber. A tiny LED light can be found just above the main power switch and indicates three different signals to users: on, off, and fill.

What we like

  • A no-frills coffee machine that is perfect for modern kitchens
  • Intuitive and easy-to-use

What we dislike

  • Overall a bulky piece that needs a sizeable real estate on your kitchen countertop

10. FinalPress V2

Why is it noteworthy?

You simply need to fill the FinalPress with a coffee of your choice, shut it, and immerse it in water to start the infusion process. The FinalPress V2 can be used with hot water or cold, and once it is done you can hit the plunger on top to extract all the water out of the coffee basket, providing you with fresh delicious coffee.
