Ex-NASA and Apple engineer makes $11,111 Blossom One Coffee Maker decked in mahogany and teak

Andrea Divirgilio / October 3, 2012

With a belief that it takes science, engineering, and art to brew a cup of insanely great coffee, a group of master engineers who previously worked at NASA and Apple, has now crafted what is called as the finest coffee brewing machine ever made. Dubbed as Blossom One Limited, this $11,111 production coffee maker that empowers you with unprecedented control over coffee brewing was manufactured by company Blossom Coffee, a brainchild of MIT engineering graduate and coffee fanatic Jeremy Kuempel, and two other colleagues. Especially designed to deliver coffee like never before, the Blossom One which operates almost silently and boasts Wi-Fi connectivity and camera, takes its elegant design inspiration from sports cars, premium furniture, and the Bauhaus movement. It’s a coffee maker crafted to change the perception of coffee-making, right from bean to cup.

The wood comes sanded by hand and treated with an oil-natural Tung oil to deliver best luster, while the glass parts are all laboratory-grade borosilicate. Further, the company also offers customized wood finish to match the cabinetry of kitchen or coffee shop.
