Ripple Maker Makes Fancy Coffee Art

 |  |  |  June 29, 2015


I am not a coffee fan. I have tried to drink it before to get off soft drinks in the morning, but it is so gross I just can’t do it. I can drink unsweetened tea all day, but coffee just tastes bad to me. I know that millions of people love the stuff though. If you are a coffee fiend looking for the next big thing in java, this might be it. The Ripples Ripple Maker machine can print cool art in the foam at the top of your coffee cup.

It uses a mix of inkjet and 3D printer tech to make the art, and it is very good at printing all sorts of designs in your coffee foam, including both images and words. The machine itself first 8.5″ x 10.5″ and is Wi-Fi connected. Its coffee printing material comes from a Ripple Pod that extrudes tiny drops of coffee bean extract into the foam.

The machine can print a design in ten seconds on any cup measuring up to 7″ high and 4.5″ wide, and designs can be selected via a companion mobile app. Keep in mind that it is not a coffee maker itself, and only used to embellish already-made cappuccinos or lattes.

The Ripple Maker will launch in September for $999 with a yearly service plan for businesses costing $75. Lufthansa airlines will be one of the first customers and will use the machine in first and business classes on some of its flights.
