Wolf brings the coffee shop to you
Today Wolf Appliances, Inc. announced a 24-inch Coffee System -- a first for the previously large-appliance-focused luxury brand. As with its existing product lines, this new Coffee System is proportionally high-end; one machine will set you back $3,195. Yep, that's a lot of money. But, you'll probably be able to forego visits to your favorite barista for trips to your very own, newly-appointed kitchen/coffee shop if you end up splurging on one.
The name Coffee System really says it all. This thing can make espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos, short or long coffees, and plain ol' hot water for tea. You can also supposedly customize the amount of foam, temperature, strength, and size of the drink (there are four presets that range from 1 to 12 ounces, but you can program your own sizes too). There's even a Double Coffee button that can make one mega-size cup of coffee for one mega-size coffee mug or two separate cups simultaneously, thanks to its multiple spouts.
Given its many functions, the button interface looks pretty simple. Wolf claims that you only have to make a couple of selections before its Coffee System dutifully starts making your drink. And, cleaning appears to be easy too; press a button, and the machine will steam clean the milk nozzle for you and deposit any used coffee grinds into a separate container.
