    Hello, I'm the designer of a funny app called Make Coffee, that transforms the iPhone into a virtual coffee maker!

    Things are getting serious and our "hobby" is turning into a serious project.

    Look at this 3D renders of our concept of the first WIFI coffee maker controlled with an iPhone app!







    This is just a concept of course but if you want to try our "non serious" app here's the links for the lite and full version:

    Make Coffee Lite:

    Make Coffee:
    itms://itunes.apple.com/us/app/make-...368437989?mt=8

    I'll keep you updated!

    I would use this except for one thing...I'm a coffee snob (yes, I admit it) and like to grind my beans right before I brew. One of these days (after I get an iPad) I'll invest in one of those coffee makers that has the grinder on a timer, and does everything.

    Well actually I'm snobber than you are I think, because in my project, inside the machine there are three main parts. A water tank, a coffee beans storage and a grinder. Every single coffee is made with fresh coffee, ground on demand!!!

    Hey did you by any chance submit this to Engadget or Gizmodo? You could get some attention that way.

    Best of luck, this idea is awesome.

    Yes I did Jello, but had no answer from them. I had however tons of websites that published these pictures, tech, design and coffee blogs

    Try and google for - "make Coffee" iphone - and you'll find an ocean of sites talking about all what is going around my app

    Thank you for your advice anyway, I really appreciate

    Love the app but as far as some constructive critiscism goes, I am personally an avid coffee drinker but this whole system seems as if it would be rather expensive to manufacture it's much cheaper to just get a coffee maker with an alarm clock.

    I personally have one that is set every morning for just when I wake up for work, so this coffee maker would have to have some other functions other than using your iphone to activate it, otherwise demand for such a device might not be that high.

    I understand what you mean... but you what my father tells when I show him my mobileme on line address book?

    "I still have my block notes with all my contacts and addresses written by hand, I don't need that"

    Maybe if it had more options and randomly throughout the day you could make any one of the ten options that would be cool. If you're feeling this or that, ya know. For that to happen you would have to have multipule dispensers built with-in and obviously a bit bigger.

    Cool concept if brought to reality. My suggestion would be to have it be able to be controlled via 3g and not just wifi networks... I mean, how awesome would it be sitting in traffic on the way home from work and tell your coffee maker to make a fresh pot of coffee for you sitting waiting for you when you get home!

    I'm in for one. Wifi is good enough for me. Since this appears to make it by the cup, I wouldn't want to make it too far in advance.

    Now that would be awesome!! The only thing for me is I would have to remember to empty the pot in the morning before I left!!!
    And even better, an app built into the coffee maker that detects when you are getting low on coffee and either adds it to your shopping list app or automatically orders it online for you...that would be cool!
