Coffee Makers

Alex Pang over at IFTF's Future Now blog, where I used to contribute, writes about the Clover 1S Coffee maker, quoting a recent Slate article. I used to work in P&G's coffee division, mostly dealing with how coffee blends are created. Even learned to do formal coffee tasting. For a while P&G even made single dosage coffee machine, not sure if they still do. Alex muses over if an $11,000 coffee machine is decadence or pure technological progress. He thinks the latter, I agree, though I think you could get the 80 for 20 here with a little training and some off-the-shelf, much cheaper machines.
