Why should technological brilliance be limited to phones, tablets and computers? With around 83 percent of American adults drinking at least one variety of coffee every day, companies around the world are actively trying to capitalize on the highly profitable caffeine industry with their smart coffee makers that do much more than just brew your morning cup of joe. At the 2014 Gulfood F&B Trade Show in Dubai, Germany-based coffee manufacturer Melitta has presented Caffeina XT6 and CT8, two super-cool coffee machines that combine unique design with advanced features.
The new Caffeina Xt6 boasts of highly functional grinders, cold and hot milk foam maker, milk cooler with a capacity of about four litres and a cup warmer. The machine sports a large, interactive touch-sensitive display that allows users to choose their drinks via pictures and product names. The adjacent shelving units are perfect for storing cups and glasses. The glossy black finish of the coffee maker along with its compact and convenient design makes it look all the more glamorous.
Being bigger and more powerful than the XT6 version, the CT8 coffee machine is indeed ideal for shops and restaurants. It is capable of making as many as 250 cups of coffee in just one hour, and comes equipped with a touchscreen display. The innovative foam making feature, designed for the purpose of making delicious iced coffee and iced latte, is also added to the CT8 model.
