The world’s first roast-grind-brew coffee maker is two significant steps closer to realization. We’re ready to sign-off on production and take the next steps towards mass production.
During a visit with the company’s partners in Korea, Bonaverde Founder and CEO Hans Stier received confirmation that all recent engineering progress, in particular the machine’s new filter, meets the company’s high operational standards. With these details in place, Bonaverde is able to finalize the machine’s design. This finalized look is clean, minimalistic, even, and exactly as the world’s first roast-grind-brew coffee machine will be the day it ships.
The design change initially became necessary when we decided to use a larger filter, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It forced us to have equally large hatches on both sides, a development we’re really happy about.”
says Bonaverde Head of Engineering Jergus Majernik.
“With this last detail resolved, we can now sign-off on production tooling,” explains Stier.
We’re thrilled to be bringing our baby closer to market, and excited to share its sleek, sharp, modern new design.”
Hans also returns from Korea with positive momentum on a second front. The software and connectivity set-up of the coffee maker is functioning beyond expectations. This innovative software includes an RFID reader for packaged green coffee beans that will set the individual coffee’s optimal roasting profile, a vital element of Bonaverde’s revolutionary new coffee ecosystem. With this software operating smoothly, Bonaverde can give the go ahead to program the electronics of the machine for mass production.
“It’s an exhilarating moment at Bonaverde,” says Hans, “Both the design freeze and the electronics have had a major impact on our go-to-market timing. We’re overjoyed to be able to tell the Coffee Changer community that things are moving forward and we’re two big steps closer to having the coffee machine in their hands.”
