The Making Of Coffee Turned Into Infographic Art [Video]

The Making Of Coffee Turned Into Infographic Art [Video]

A Breville espresso machine is hacked to provide data which is used to create live visualizations of the coffee getting brewed.

Emma Hutchings

Australian creative agency Reborn helped Breville promote its Dual Boiler by introducing the art and science behind the perfect espresso. ‘The Naked Espresso‘ used physical computing to create live visualizations of the coffee as it was being brewed by measuring and graphically displaying the flow rate, pressure, temperature, and steam.

The animation speed, number of shapes, rotation and position were carefully connected with the machine’s behaviour during the brewing process. These unique artistic visuals were then printed out and attached to the coffee cup with a summary of the hidden science used to make that espresso. You can check it out in the video below:
