SET / Modular Coffee maker


"SET" represents the ceremonial and experimental way of making coffee. Arranged on a tray, "SET" can be used directly at the coffee table.
An induction matrix creates heat and can trigger defined elements, of frothing milk for example. The individual modules are provided with an active and an inactive space. The active space reacts with the induction matrix, the inactive one serves as a resting space. Each device stands for one step: roasting, grinding, brewing and frothing (milk).
A further module provides for molecular experiments like the production of coffee caviar, which offers an additional aesthetic and flavorful experience.
