Coffee Machine Can Taste the Difference Between Good and Bad Coffee
Sometimes we want the future to arrive, and this is one of the machines of the future we'd like to have built into every single serve coffee maker. This machine can taste the quality in your cup of espresso, and can identify coffee types nearly as accurately as a panel of trained espresso tasters.
The machine analyzes the gas espresso gives off when created, translating combinations of ions into descriptions like "roasted, flowery, woody, toffee and acidity." It was created by chemical engineers at Nestle in Switzerland, and will be used as a quality control device in the coffee industry, and perhaps even now is being used for Nespresso coffees.

THANK GOOOOOOODNESS! I'm so tired of paying good money for a nasty cup of coffee. As I'm standing in line, and waiting for my coffee to be made. You smell the bean being burnt, and the cow being killed as they steam the milk. No wonder they ask if you want whip cream on your drink. They have to cover the nasty taste in the cup...YUCK!!
