    Introducing “Arist“, a coffee machine that can brew every coffee drink to perfection; from the grinding of beans, to pulling espresso shots and even remembering your favourite coffee recipes via a smartphone app.

    In other words, this is a coffee lover’s wet dream.

    Its Kickstarter campaign has been so successful that it has raised almost US$100,000 more than its target of US$120,000. With 25 days still to go till it is funded, we’re sure the project will raise a hell lot more.

    Arist has simplified everything into a simple machine with an easy-to-use smartphone app, so you can download recipes and brew coffee like the best baristas at just the tap of a button. (Photo by Arist)

    Arist founder and CEO, Benson Chiu, tells us in the introduction video how he isn’t pleased by the inconsistency of coffee made by hand, thus giving birth to the idea for Arist, where coffee can be made to precise preferences and specifications.

    Yup, we can now all brew delicious gourmet coffee by just tapping on our smartphones. The accompanying smartphone app will enable users to save recipes, and also customise their own ones based on how they like their coffee.

    If that isn’t enough, Arist will also come with NFC stickers that are waterproof and dishwasher safe, so you can assign specific cups to specific recipes.

    Sounds impressive? Don’t take our word for it, hear it from the people themselves in the video below.
