Here's what we saw when we scoured the aisles of Seattle's big coffee show, hunting for exciting java tech.
If you're info coffee, then there were plenty of exciting things to see, touch and taste at the Global Coffee Expo 2017 in Seattle.
Breville's Oracle Touch is the company's first fully automatic espresso machine.
The Oracle Touch has a touchscreen on its front face as its main control panel.
There's no complicated swirling required when steaming milk since the Oracle's special steam wand does it all.
The Breville Precision Brewer looks like a regular drip coffee-maker, but it's way more advanced than that.
This coffee-maker makes much more than drip.
A special accessory lets you make proper pour-over.
Place your favorite pour-over funnel on the Precision Brewer's stand and it supplies the hot water.
The Motif Mentor scale links to phones and tablets over Bluetooth and provides coffee-brewing advice through its mobile app.
There are no visible buttons, controls or a screen on the Mentor scale.
The Motif Elements merges quality drip brewing with a programmable schedule.
This Bunn coffee maker costs a little less than many other premium models, yet still brews to meet the SCAA "golden cup" standard.
Inside the water tank are those distinctive Bunn water level markings.
One display really caught my eye at Coffee Expo 2017 -- Technivorm's vintage Moccamasters. This space-age one is straight out of the 1960s.
This Vintage Moccamaster clearly is a 1970s model. With those brown and orange hues, it would have blended right into the "Brady Bunch" home's kitchen counter.
Goodbye, 70s! This Moccamaster model has the 1980s -- or even 1990s -- written all over it.
The Fellows Stagg Electric Kettle was on hand too. Paired with a mobile app, it talks to select Baratza grinders and Acaia scales to help you brew pour-over coffee.
The Poursteady machine is an automated contraption designed to deliver hot water to multiple pour-over cones at once and with consistent results.
Behmor had its home kitchen coffee roaster on display as well. This version features ways to customize the roasting process and save your recipes.
