Minimal coffee machine by Felix Pöttinger

„h4“ is a new coffee machine experience developed by the German
 designer and Royal College of Art graduate Felix Pöttinger
 together with coffee retail specialist Kaffeekontor Bayern and the
 swiss coffee machine manufacturer Eversys.
 The project results from observations around fully automated
 coffee makers in the hospitality-, worksplace- and retail sector.
 The goal was to develop an integrated and user-friendly coffee
 solution without compromise to quality and with all of the benefits
 of electronic intelligence.
 h4 reimagined the fully-automated coffee machines and coffee
 vending machines with an unter-counter system, which empowers
 individuals to be their own baristas. The system offers full app
 functionality, autonomous payment and brewing system, an open
 API and a custom interface design to meet the needs of coffee
 enthusiasts. Premium barista-quality, self-service beverages for
 hospitality, workplace and retail environments, fully autonomous,
 seamlessly intergrated and designed to optimize workflows.
 The minimalist design of the tap, made of anodised aluminum, has
 no displays or buttons of any kind and fits easily into any interior
 scenario. The machine becomes redundant, a mere ghost, and it
 becomes about people, products and environments.
