Arist Coffee Maker Is As Smart Making Drinks As Your Local Barista

When it comes to your cup of coffee in the morning, are you so particular at home it involves complex rituals to brew something up? Does your local Starbucks barista know you like a dozen different things done to prepare your perfect caffeine fix? If you answer yes to these questions you likely are a prime candidate for ownership of the Arist, a technology-enabled home coffee machine that aims to put a hipster coffee drink maker at your beck and call all day or night.

The Arist, quite simply put, is designed to place nearly every part of the coffee brewing process at your command. The simplicity stops with that statement though, as this kitchen top gadget uses a complex combination of internal mechanics, smartphone controls and cloud based recipes to “dramatically increase the precision of coffee making” to a level one would never get out of that Mr. Coffee you used over the weekend in that Airbnb mountain cabin rental.

The Arist aims to be your coffee making barista at home.

Arist is mostly managed through your smartphone via an iPhone or Android app you download for free. The app accesses an online database of thousands of coffee drink recipes created by hundreds of baristas that are organized by factors like those coffee beans you just scoopedinto it and drink type. This app allows you to fine tune and tailor these recipes to your liking before then sending along the appropriate brewing instructions to the wireless enabled coffee machine hanging out on your home WiFi network.

This app, besides recipe management and machine instruction, also lets you order missing ingredients, share recipes with others and, most importantly, can make so-called “tailored recommendations” on drinks it thinks you might want based upon personal preferences and beans you have on hand.

Now should you not have your smartphone handy when wanting to brew some coffee, a couple of options exist to still get that better cup of joe. The Arist machine itself has a button touch control that lets you brew a previously assigned recipe. Also, in this era of NFC technology, you can attach to the bottom of your special cup a NFC sticker that alerts Arist to get busy making a particular recipe you might be craving when it comes near.

Those behind Arist have come up for it a tall, slender design that should look quite nice in your kitchen or home office. It comes in a couple of different colors as well as a special wood edition. Feature wise it has built into it a milk frother, grinder, coffee bean container, liquid reservoir and more. It is currently up on Kickstarter for crowd source funding and, as of this blog post, already had well surpassed its initial monetary goals.
