“From an aesthetic point of view it plays with your desires”, said designer David Mansueto. “It’s not just a coffee maker. There’s something very personal about it that makes you want to show it to someone and say “look what I’ve got. It’s MY coffee machine.”
Mansueto’s Aroma Espresso Maker was his final year design project at the University of Technology in Sydney, and became one of the finalists in the recent Australian Design Awards.
Will it ever see the light of day? Will it make good coffee? Don’t know… but it’s a welcome diversion from a market increasingly saturated with single-cup automatons.
