Rugby Junior Tri Club has agreed sponsorship from locally-based Scanomat, home of the revolutionary TopBrewer - the world's first mobile or tablet activated coffee machine.

Junior Club Chairman John Austin said: "We are delighted to have Scanomat on board and the sponsorship received has meant we can subsidise the cost of our club tri suits, making them more affordable for members. Our club has nearly doubled in size, so to be able to do this is a fantastic boost."

Simon Bracken, Managing Director of Scanomat UK said: "Triathlon is a relatively new sport, it is great to be able to support such a thriving club and perhaps even some of our future triathlon Olympians. At Scanomat we pride ourselves on 'innovation not imitation' and I'm sure these youngsters will definitely take the sport to new levels!"

The TopBrewer from Scanomat is a truly innovative commercial coffee concept. The sleek and stylish coffee tap has recently won an iF Design Award, and the TopBrewer app is unique in that it allows users to customise their own drinks and save them as their favourite.

Triathlon is three sports undertaken as one - swimming, cycling and running - if you are interested in taking part more information concerning the club's adult and junior sections can be found at www.rugbytriathlon.org.uk. You can join in with the Junior Club at their Sunday training sessions at Rugby School and participate in any or all of the disciplines.

“Imagine if you could switch on the heating, close the blinds and even control what your children are watching on TV — all from the touch of a button on your iPad.

Today a London company demonstrated how it could be commonplace in the future by creating the capital’s ultimate techy home.

The Evening Standard was given a sneak preview of the two-storey showhouse in Fitzrovia, which cost £1.4 million to create and features about £500,000 worth of equipment. It has been created to show how technology can simplify people’s lives.

Everything — including music, coffee machines, CCTV, heating and cinema — is synced to a centralised system controlled from an app on a phone or iPad. To use it, owners select which room they want to control from a plan of the 4,000 sq ft house.

Touch screen: the creators say the iPad brand gives people confidence in the technology.  It can be operated remotely, from work or when the owners are out, so they can see what is going on, prepare the house for when they get home or control what their children are watching on television.

The operating system was designed and created by home automation company Cornflake, which built the house as its showroom.

It also features pop-up TV screens, an iPad-controlled coffee machine, a revolving dance floor, a cinema, mirror TVs and the world’s first ultra-HD TV.”

The Daily Mail also reported “A tap that is controlled by an iPad makes lattes at a touch of a button. It is the world's first i-coffee machine, designed originally for super-yachts, and makes hot drinks within 45 seconds. The machine can also remember how you take certain drinks. It also makes fresh orange juice, chilled water and boiling water for cooking.”

October 3rd, 2012 – Scanomat, Danish manufacturer and
developer of fully automated coffee machines, is launching its iOS app on the app store
today (04:00 PM GMT+1) for use with its revolutionary new beverage system, the
TopBrewer. Order a drink, customise your own coffee, and save as your personal
favourite.

”With the Scanomat app you can finally brew coffee directly from your iPhone. Our latest
product, the beautifully elegant TopBrewer, offers an innovative way of choosing your
favourite beverage. No keyboard is needed as you control the TopBrewer wirelessly from
your iPhone or iPad. Our video on YouTube has been seen by almost a million viewers
and we are very satisfied by the response we have received so far on the product. " says
CEO of Scanomat Kim Vibe-Petersen.

The beautiful, patented stainless steel tap is designed to be built into any tabletop. The
simplicity of the Top Brewer fits in elegantly in the surroundings and takes minimum
space in the counter.

The TopBrewer brews a perfect cup of coffee – every time - thanks to Scanomats
advanced brewing technology. The TopBrewer will be available in a Pro and Office model.

”We are the first in the world to have pioneered a coffee machine that is completely app
based. You connect to the machine via Bluetooth - and everything then just runs
smoothly. You can order your drink within 10-meter radius of the machine, and on the
display of your phone follows the status of the brewing - from grinding to the final
extraction process of your coffee. Within 15-25 seconds you can be enjoying your freshly
made drink”, says Project Manager Frederik Vibe-Petersen.

”You can even customise your drink on your iPhone and save it as your personal favourite
by easily & intuitively adjusting the parameters available for your selected drink, such as
strength, amount of milk foam, texture of foam, size of drink etc. As such you can always
have your favourite drink, no matter where in the world you are.”

Scanomat is presently launching the TopBrewer in Europe and the Middle East, and in a
few months in the USA.

T3 Gadget Awards 2012!

T3 Gadget Awards have started, and we have been nominated for an award. We are very pleased that the TopBrewer has been so well accepted, therefore we ask for your vote to help us win. Click here 

This is what T3 have written about the product on their site: 

"The TopBrewer doesn’t stop at landmark design. Selecting drinks via a side board mounted touch panel is just the beginning of the options available because drinks can also be ordered via iPhone or iPad.
 
Simply place a cup under the tap, tap your iPhone and watch as your drink is delivered in seconds. The patented wonder tap dispenses milk, water and jets of steam for blanching vegetables before automatically cleaning itself.
 
The TopBrewer is the kind of luxury gadget that makes Starbucks look like an old-fashioned dive bar from the past."

Barista quality coffee without the barista?

"COFFEE lovers in Victoria got a glimpse of the future this week with the launch of a new touch screen coffee machine delivered as part of Great Place to Work. Housed in the new Ground Floor breakout space, the minimalist Danish made Scanomat TopBrewer is currently trending on Twitter and comes recommended by T3 magazine and Wired.com.

The selfcleaning machine uses only fresh water to refresh itself after every drink dispensed, and the only visible part protruding from its solid glass countertop is a stainless steel dispensing spout, home to the world’s smallest milk frother.

One of the first Partners to try the new coffee experience, Marketing Online’s Phil Metcalfe, was very impressed with technology: “I think it’s an astonishing machine,” he said, “it gives you a very nice cup of coffee and in a completely revolutionary way.” According to Scanomat UK Managing Director Simon Bracken, the hype around the new machine is quite justified.

“It’s not just a clean, elegant and fast way to get your coffee,” he said, “The machine is energy saving, uses fresh water for every cup and over 90 per cent of the device is recyclable.” “Over two million cups of coffee are produced worldwide every year using Scanomat machines, and we believe John Lewis Partner are about to join a list of satisfied customers.” The machine’s daily 45 second start time is an industry low, and it’s use of‘flash heat’ instead of preboiling means water in every cup is fresh from the tap. And if you want the new frothy coffee experience without travelling down to the Ground Floor to get it then your wait could almost be over – the new machines set to be rolled out on some floors across 171 in the coming months."

Barista quality coffee without the barista?

"In terms of catering equipment, the standout for us was the TopBrewer from Scanomat: an iPhone or iPad controlled coffee maker. The only visible part of the machine is the stainless steel tap; the workings are hidden away under the counter. It is designed to be built into any tabletop or counter, but can be supplied as a mobile standalone unit if required, ideal for external use or for events and functions.

In essence it is a button to cup machine, albeit one with extremely innovative design and a barista quality coffee. The coffee settings, milk froth etc. can be adjusted in exactly the same way as a traditional espresso machine and for that reason the quality of the end product is very good. Although an element of theatre is lost the machine allows the server to be customer facing at all times without the physical barrier which a traditional machine creates when it is on the front counter. For that reason it is a great space saver.

The TopBrewer is currently being used in company offices where staff can programme their iPhone with their favourite coffee settings then use it to order their coffee, in car dealer showrooms and in hotels. It is understood that next month John Lewis will be installing them into their refurbished store in Milton Keynes. We can see a number of operators who might be interested in the machine and further details can be found on their website "

Scanomat put the app into cappuccino

"The coffee machine is designed to be hidden beneath theworksurface so that all the user sees is a height adjustable stainless steel tap, drain cover and glossy black touchscreen surface on which to make drink selections."

 

But great design is just half the story. What’s really exciting people is the TopBrewer app that allows users to communicate with a WiFi or Bluetooth-enabled machine and order a freshly ground cup of coffee using an iPhone or iPad. The TopBrewer is packed full of innovative coffee technology, too, including the world’s smallest milk frother and two coffee grinders so that you can have a choice of coffee styles (e.g. caffeinated or non-caffeinated). It can also be specified with fruit juice and chocolate drinks. It can dispense four black filter coffees per minute and takes just 25 seconds to make a perfectly brewed espresso. With the ability to make five cups at a time, it is ideal for filling coffee pots in executive offices and boardrooms."

iNEED A DRINK!

"Tired of your old coffee maker's lack of smartphone app and general visibility? Slurp this way ..."

Are you still putting things on your worktops? You big idiot! What do you thik this is, 1956? It's all about building in your kitchen tech these days, and the Scanomat TopBrewer is a prime example. Comfortably the maddest coffee maker we've ever seen - it trounces that fingerprint operated one we had last year - The TopBrewer system consists of one or multiple curved spouts arching up from your Corian. As well as dispensing coffee, the spout also houses the worlds's smallest coffee frother. If that's not ostentatious enough, you can also have it pour beverages made to your exact spec via an iPad or iPhone app."

Want a Coffee? Reach for your iPhone

Users will be able to download an application next month and will have to press just one button on their phone to order the machine to make a coffee. Once the brew is ordered via an iPad or iPhone, users are told what stage the operation has reached, from grinding right through to when the milk is being heated and frothed. "There are people that will buy it for their home because it's a nice feature and a gadget," said Mr Bahar, who expects to sell between 30 and 40 of the machines this year. Scanomat has invented a pouring system for the machine and developed the software to be powered by an iPad or iPhone. The company said it was also developing the product for Android and BlackBerry operating systems.

A Closer Look at the iPhone-Controlled Coffee Brewer

"This beautiful coffeemaker — everything but the elegant swan neck tap is hidden under a counter — was developed by a 230-person, family-owned company in Denmark called Scanomat. Mashable spoke with Sebastian Vibe-Petersen, Scanomat’s export manager, who says the company invented the first fully automatic cappuccino machine in the early 1980s — and that the TopBrewer is Scanomat’s biggest success in its 50 year history.

The design was borne out of the mind of CEO Kim Vibe-Petersen (Sebastian’s father), with the goal of making the complicated simple — without comprising quality. Sebastian says his father “has always been a driving force in development and has taken many crazy ideas into reality,” so creating the world’s most high-tech coffee brewer wasn’t a farfetched idea. Vibe-Petersen says the concept’s mechanics had been brewing in his head for a while, doing what he calls “3D rendering” — until he woke up one morning with the idea for a the smallest milk foamer yet, which would be a necessary component of the compact TopBrewer. In two days, he says, the basic idea was prototyped and tested in Scanomat’s R&D department, where tools for such product development were readily available. It worked, and getting the product into production took two years, much of that consumed by the foamer, which is now patented as the world’s smallest milk frother and is placed at the tip of the faucet. The TopBrewer’s tap is made of 80% recycled stainless steel and can be built into any tabletop — you just need two small holes for the faucet and the drain. So Scanomat’s mastered both the user experience and the user interface. The design’s simplicity is uniquely Scandinavian, but it has global appeal — the first hundreds of TopBrewers will roll off the assembly lines in January to meet the demand. "

You know you want it: This iPhone controlled coffee maker looks like it came out of Jony Ive's bunker

"This morning is about design. Apple’s chief designer Jony Ive’s bunker at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California holds “the future for the next three years” and we know his design work is influenced by Dieter Rams (he penned the foreword to Rams’ latest book called As Little Design As Possible: The Work of Dieter Rams). That being said, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this coffee machine is an appliance Ive (or Rams, for that matter) created as a fun project in between designing a next-gen A5-powered Mac notebook and a radically different iPhone 5.

All drinks are brewed to barista standards using precision grinders, tamper pressure, pump pressure and water temperature and it works with your iPhone via a dedicated app so you can wake up, run the app, select your pre-programmed drink and literally get out of the bed to the hot cup of coffee waiting for you. And I mean literally because the Top Brewer needs only fifteen seconds to make a cup of coffee. Rough mornings will never be the same!"
