Fancy building your own portable coffee maker?

fuse-coffeeCoffee can be said to be the perfect pick-me-up drink that most people need to start their day right. Not only that, there are many ways to get your caffeine fix — ranging from sachets that are packaged in a factory somewhere, or going through the motions of using an expensive coffee machine in your home to brew the perfect cuppa. What if we told you that it is possible to construct your very own coffee maker? This is what this modular coffee maker is all about, letting you obtain a latte from whole beans in a matter of minutes.

Bangkok-based FUSE Coffee Company intends to roll out their coffee-gadget FUSE Modular Coffee Press system. Touted to be a portable coffee maker, the FUSE Coffee Press will rely on a bunch of twist-on modules which at this point in time, includes a ceramic burr that will help to grind roasted beans right before the brew, as well as a milk frother for those who would prefer to settle for a latte or cappuccino.

After all, there is nothing quite like grinding fresh beans on the spot and brewing it right away in order to obtain the perfect cup of coffee, and this fully robust, easy to clean, portable and modular system is able to offer users such a luxury as users grind, brew and froth milk while they are on the move.

This FUSE portable system, as mentioned earlier, is fully modular. At the core of the system lies a 1-lb (450-g), 4.8 x 3.1-in (122 x 80-mm) chamber and plunger. This particular hand-held plunger will press down hot water into a stainless steel coffee chamber at 5 to 6 bar (73 to 87 psi) of pressure, so that coffee is able to escape into a cup. If you would like to have your cuppa to taste a wee bit stronger, do take note that this is fully adjustable with a twist of the chamber.

The main unit can be pre-ordered at $49 a pop, where it is hoped to ship out before this Christmas arrives.
