What could possibly go wrong?

It couldn't be simpler 007: swipe your finger, enjoy your coffee.

Here at Barista Magazine, we do love a lot of coffee gadgets, you know like VST’s Mojo to Go or the Aeropress, but this new home machine from Saeco is really something else. It’s smart because it stores coffee profiles for six individuals, but it’s also, umm… maybe a little over the top, because the profiles are accessed by fingerprint recognition, so if you wanted to make a cup for your parter, I guess you just need to lop off their hand and take it to the kitchen with you?

"Tell me what kind of coffee you want! Tell me now, damn it!" that's how Jack Bauer takes your order.
