Hacking Coffee Machines

Fb7100 Some coffee maker hacking…At work we got new coffee machines. The supplier is the Dutch company Douwe Etters. It immediately became apparent that the coffee was not up to spec compared with our former supplier. Complaints did not result in better coffee, so I decided to try to do something about the weak coffee with froth (foam) on top of it. After all, everybody knows that foam should be on top of beer, not on coffee! On the plus side, the coffee is free… Link.

  1. fyi.. maker sent this in to me:

    there’s an errata corrige to the post about hacking coffee machines.
    the supplier’s real name is Douwe Egberts, and unless the name was faked on purpouse,
    you might wanna change it :)

    I know cause I live in amsterdam, and we had the same supplier couple years ago.
