This minimalist coffee system delivers maximum luxury. All that appears above the counter is a swan neck faucet. Hidden underneath is a coffee grinder, refrigerator, frother, and, of course, a brewer. Use your tablet or smartphone to order a coffee, macchiato, cappuccino, latte, sparkling water, or even milk (warm or cold) at the size and strength you prefer. Your beverage is prepared in less than a minute, and the system flushes itself with water so there’s no aftertaste for the next order. Available locally through Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio. Retail starts at about $8,000. Look at it this way: If you stop daily for a $4 venti latte, the system pays for itself in five and a half years.
