Poursteady makes up to five cups simultaneously without sacrificing the quality of the brew

A team of four makers specializing in robotics and product design has set up shop in the old MakerBot stomping grounds in Gowanus to fine-tune its latest endeavor – an automated pour-over coffee machine. A shining, robotic barista helper, if you will. The caffeine contraption, Poursteady, makes up to five cups of pour-over coffee concurrently. This isn’t a barista replacement, but rather an invention speeding up the pour-over process without sacrificing the ritual or brew quality.

The Poursteady machine hasn’t made its way onto coffee shop counter spaces (yet), but in its roughly year on the scene, has piqued interest in the tech, coffee and maker communities – it has been selected as one of twenty teams to compete in Engadget’s Insert Coin competition, served up over 900 cups of coffee at the Maker Faire in New York, and the team has been recognized as one of New York’s Next Top Makers.
