arabica evolution / coffee machine

„arabica evolution“ coffee pleasure inspired by nature

Coffee should be ceremony, comfort and taste.
But the now existing coffeesystems with their technical solutions just cover the hightech inside without serving the rich history of coffee.
„arabica evolution“ takes the harmony of the natural process, to generate hot tastefull coffee out of
energy, water and coffeepouder. Similar to the natural process, this system generates energy with the solarpannels in its leaves.
You cast it with water which will be absorbed by the roots. Coffeebeans will be its fertiliser and upgrade the water to coffee, ready for harvesting it out of the flower.
