If your dream is to start your day every morning with a cup of coffee from something out of a Guillermo del Toro movie, there’s now a coffee maker for you. It’s the IIKONE Brewer, a creepy spider-like contraption that’s as much of an art piece and conversation starter as it is a coffee machine.
And yet, the IIKONE Brewer’s arachnid visual impression serves a functional purpose as well. By unobstructing the filter as compared to traditional machines, your coffee will purportedly be less bitter and more flavorful even compared to other old-school pourover brewing methods.
Of course, all that’s moot if you don’t want a robot spider freaking people out in your kitchen. But if you do, you should check out the IIKONE Brewer’s official site here, where it’s listed as “coming soon” for the moment. Hopefully it will be available for pre-order soon, although it probably won’t be in time for Halloween this year.
