Aaahhh! Coffee, the integral ingredient to most people’s morning and evening routines. A cup of coffee is all it takes to get you all fired up in the office. It’s the secret ingredient to those quiet evenings by the fireside with a book or your favorite TV show. You are not alone, and Seven & Me Coffee Maker is promising to make the process of getting your favorite hot beverage much easier.
From the comfort of your home, you can make different types of coffee drinks using this intelligent machine. It has 5 pre-programmed modes, and it takes about 3 minutes to produce your drink.
Seven & Me is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo with less than a week to go, 2,549 backers, and $536,620 raised.
How it Works
So, how does this smart coffee marker work? The Seven & Me is a milk frother and dual espresso maker that does both simultaneously. There are 5 modes, cappuccino, espresso, latte, macchiato, and foam.
With a simple touch of the button, it will froth the milk and brew barista-qualify coffee in 3 minutes. The brewing pressure, heat, and time of the coffee maker are automatically controlled once you select your preferred mode. The frothing works on dairy and non-dairy milk.
You can also bid scalded milk goodbye since the automatic milk frother ensures your milk is frothed to the standard and perfect 60-degrees temperature. The coffee maker has a high-speed magnet of 5000RPM and a frothing capacity of 350ml.
While the default temperature setting for the frother is hot or foam milk, you can always change to room temperature.
Pros and Cons
Seven & Me is quite small and compact, so it takes up little space. You can place it on your kitchen counter at home or in the office and brew your drink whenever you need it. It’s fast and brews in three minutes. It also has a frother that works simultaneously with the brewer. The frother works with dairy and non-dairy milk and retains it at the standard barista temperature.
Seven & Me also help reduce the number of disposable plastic coffee cups that end in landfills. If you are making the coffee at home or the office, you can easily use your mug. The company also sells a branded Seven & Me tumbler that you can use to carry your coffee when you’re in a rush, thus saving the environment.
The cons, first, you will have to wait a little longer with the delivery scheduled for November 2020. There is no final product yet, making it a bit difficult for reviewers to give thoughts based on the experience of using the product itself.
Also, although the coffee maker is selling on a discount on Indiegogo, it’s still higher than other smart coffee makers in the market. Atomi, for example, can connect via WiFi and has a larger brewing capacity. Nescafé, Hamilton Beach, and Keurig are some of the few brands one can consider. However, none of these has a working system with frother like Seven & Me.
