Many of us have coffee machines at home as well as a variety of different ways to create a brew, however IKAWA Coffee has now created a machine that will allow you to home roast your own coffee beans.
The IKAWA home coffee roaster can be controlled via a companion smartphone application and enables you to roast your own coffee at the touch of a button, or rather a touchscreen.
IKAWA Coffee has taken to Kickstarter to raise the £80,000 the UK-based manufacturer needs to take their home coffee roaster to market. The development team explains a little more about the features you can expect from your tabletop home coffee roasting machine.
“Unlock a world of fantastic flavours and beautiful aromas by roasting your own coffee at home in minutes! However you like your coffee whether it’s a dark espresso or a light filter roast it comes from ‘green’ unroasted coffee beans. To get the perfect coffee you need the best green beans and the ideal roast tailored to those beans.
The IKAWA Home Roaster enables you to roast your coffee at the push of a button. We offer a range of top quality green coffee beans from iconic locations, and provide roast recipes to bring the best flavours out of the beans.
Brew your coffee how you like: Cafetière, Pour-over, Espresso, AeroPress, Moka pot or Filter, the IKAWA Home Roaster will take your connoisseurship to the next level – simply select the roast recipe on your smartphone, drop the beans into the roaster and watch them roast – it will take between 3 – 10 minutes.“
