Saw this ad on Facebook. Looks like they're prepping for a Kickstarter campaign. Looks like an interesting novel method of extraction (puck centrifugation, centrifugal force generated pressure). Any thoughts on this? Does this seem legit?

Nespresso Vertuo uses a similar technique.

I have been seeing the Kuku Maker (espresso, pour over...) announced on Instagram lately, but no discussions here:

It will use centrifugal force to compress coffee bed and then spray water over it repeatedly until desired extraction is reached. I love the ingenuity of it!

When the Meticulous was announced I thought to myself its so simple its genius. This one is entirely reinventing coffee extraction.

Nespresso Vertuo uses centrifugal extraction; the concept is well-known. The hard (and patented by Nestlé) part was getting the coffee to taste like espresso and not just taste like coffee brewed at a strength equal to espresso.

There's a Spinn Coffee Maker, a Bosch centrifugal coffee maker, and a Jericho J-SE85 Spin Express machine from Italy from the 70's or 80's.

Maybe this one will be different.

Even if other products exist, the speed of the spin might make a big difference. Like the difference between a moka pot and espresso.

In the 90s or so there was a Tchibo Picco espresso machine. It actually made espresso.

Here a video of the workflow:

As long as I remember correctly it was actual espresso and not mokka, I might be mistaken I retired my machine probably 15-20 years ago.
Alot of the crema is in the machine the path to the cup is quite wide and long.
The plastic pseudo portafilter was prone to breaking.

Theoretical workflow and more of the "brewing chamber": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shbZs1JJreY

Thanks for the videos, it's always interesting looking at these old machines, you really come to find out that a lot of new ideas have been done in some form or another before.
