It's surprising it took this long but Morning, the folks behind The Morning Machine (Kickstarter), have decided to tackle a problem anyone who loves their morning cup of coffee has noticed when it comes to pod or capsule brewers such as the one made famous by Keurig. You get what you get, and that's it.
Meaning there's not a lot of tweaking you can do with the grounds or beans by the time you've got it in a pod for single-cup use. With The Morning Machine, however, the makers on Kickstarter say you can "brew with intention."
But what does that even mean?
This is what Morning says:
By pairing a growing variety of high-quality coffee capsules with customisable recipes, the Morning Machine allows you to explore new flavours and roasts from the comfort of home, while enjoying it just how the roaster intended it.
Not forgetting the most integral part of all this: community. As we spend more time at home, the Morning Machine bridges the gap and connects both coffee roasters and home brewers, who are in pursuit of delicious coffees, from all over the world.
Fair points all—anyone who has been forced to stay home for the larger portion of the last six months thanks to COVID-19 can speak to the way hanging onto normally habitual routines takes on a special significance for some.
The Morning Machine is compatible with Nespresso Original Line capsules and perfectly sized for even the smallest kitchen.
Here, however, are some of the features you won't find with any similar coffeemaker:
- Built-in scale for greater brewing control, gauging the intensity of the brew from weight, not volume.
- A pair of heat sensors that together with a Proportional Integral Derivate controller allows adjusting coffee temps to taste.
- Morning's own special Intermittent Wave Brewing System, which they claim makes a difference in the quality—texture, mouthfeel—of the drink.
- The machine connects to an app so you can track favorite recipes.
