T3 - - Game Changer -

Here on T3 we like noth­ing more than a face-dis­tort­ing-strength cup of cof­fee. We’re al­ways on the look­out for a ma­chine that’s up to the task, and while we’ve come across some par­tic­u­larly note­wor­thy ex­am­ples – bean-tocup be­ing our par­tic­u­lar poi­son – none matches the Bonaverde Ber­lin’s out­landish cof­fee-mak­ing abil­i­ties.

As well as grind­ing your beans, brew­ing the grounds to per­fec­tion and then de­liv­er­ing the caf­feinated liq­uid to you pip­ing hot in a carafe, this cof­fee beast also takes the raw green beans, pack­aged and de­liv­ered di­rect from plan­ta­tions around the world, and roasts them be­fore your very eyes. For­get bean-to-cup, this is plant-to-cup. The whole process is ex­tremely slick: farm­ers pack­age and RFID tag the beans, you or­der them and scan the bag us­ing the built-in RFID reader on the Ber­lin once they ar­rive, at which point you’re billed and the farmer is paid. The beans are roasted by an in­frared burner in about 15 min­utes us­ing a ‘roast­ing pro­file’ that’s tai­lored by top roast­ers and baris­tas to the par­tic­u­lar beans you’ve pur­chased. With Wi-Fi on board and con­nec­tiv­ity via the phone app, you can make ad­just­ments to the whole cof­fee-mak­ing process, se­lect­ing your pre­ferred roast and grind, for the ul­ti­mate, eth­i­cal cup of fuel.
