Scanomat's Top Brewer keeps all the grinding and brewing hardware under the counter and allows you to order up your drink by using an app on an iPhone. There's even an LCD touchscreen on the counter to serve as an alternate way to order up your beverage.The Top Brewer can produce up to four cups of coffee per minute, and is self-cleaning.
The Top Brewer can be configured to dispense hot and cold water, milk, fruit juices or even just steam for blanching vegetables. Pricing is yet to be determined but we're not thinking under $100. :-)

Powered by Keurig brewing technology, the Mr. Coffee KG2 K-Cup Single Serve Coffee Maker is compatible with Keurig K-Cup portion packs. It features a removable drip tray, and has an On/Off Indicator Light.
Other features include:
- Personal Brewer Choice of 1 cup size (9 oz.)
- Single-use water reservoir
- Energy Savings Mode – Auto Off after 90 seconds
We like the look of the KG2 over the KG1 model. It just feels a bit less Star Trek and more from the future of single serve coffee. Like the KG1, this brewer is also perfect for on the go and the single-use water reservoir keeps each cup of coffee fresh the first time. Read our review of the KG1 from Mr. Coffee to get an idea of how this brewer works.

It requires a 120V electrical connection for operation and comes with a cord and NEMA 5-15P plug.
Note the trifecta is currently only available in a cafe version and it not for home yet, but we're not sure there's anything stopping you from purchasing the $3000+ trifecta either.

You can save up to $67 bucks on the Dolce Gusto Genio Coffeemaker right now. The Dolce Gusto Genio Coffeemaker allows you to easily prepare a variety of hot and cold drinks with the single serve system, and it uses the Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee capsules. You can produce gourmet coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, iced drinks and more, and it even produces authentic espresso with crema using 15 bar pump pressure. You can also quickly customize beverage strength and preparation with the 7-level LED display controls, and no preheating is required with the special thermoblock heating system.

There's a new Tassimo in town dubbed the Tassimo T55. Well - maybe not in a US town just yet, but they are launching this machine in Germany this Fall. The Tassimo T55 will use the T-Disc system which makes a perfect drink every time by using the Tassimo bar code scanner built into the T55.
Other features like the +/- button let you set the coffee strength to precisely match your taste. And the integrated BRITA filter in the water tank of this Bosch coffee maker ensures an enhanced quality of drink, while the transparent water tank allows you to see through the machine as if looking through an archway.

Not too long ago I reviewed four different espresso capsule systems. One system that was not included was the Tassimo, so here is a look at the Tassimo Professional T-300 Office machine.
If I was reviewing steam locomotives then this would be the "Allegany 2-6-6-6" of the series, the biggest, heaviest, hardest working one of them all. If you have a larger office then this machine should be near the top of your list.
As mentioned, it is a BIG machine, 16.5" tall, even deeper at nearly two feet, and 8" wide. This machine has a serious foot print and the size and weight of this machine also makes it exceptionally stable and quiet. Only the Lavazza came close to the size of this machine.
