Hello, Mi Fans!

How are you all? Friends, For the caffeine-addicted among us, coffee is life. There are a seemingly endless number of options when it comes to how you make your coffee: a regular drip coffee maker, a Keurig for quick and easy coffee, Aeropress or French press when you want quality, or even high-end Italian espresso machines if you’ve got money to burn.

But, if you want some incredible coffee that is brewed specifically to your tests, the best option is to create your own machine.That’s what Mugsy, the robotic coffee maker does. This incredible coffee maker is has been built using a Raspberry Pi and Arduino, but it’s the incredible number of features that really makes it stand out. Stay stuned with this thread so you can witness your self how awesome it is.

  • Mugsy is the world's first hackable, customizable, dead simple, robotic coffee maker. Every aspect of your brew can be controlled, from grind size and water temperature to pour over pattern and bloom time. If you prefer simplicity, Mugsy will get out of the way. Just send it a text, a tweet or hit that Coffee Now button and your cup will be ready in the time it takes to get to the kitchen.

  • Hold your applause, because there is more: using RFID-equipped mugs, it can remember your preferences, and brew your perfect cup every time.
  • Mugsy combines tried and true, hand crafted coffee brewing methods with incredible open source technology. With his built in steel conical burr grinder, rock solid water temperature control and nearly infinitely configurable pour over patterns, your home brewed coffee will be your favorite coffee. Mugsy even learns how to make the best cup of coffee just for you. Dial in every setting, or let Mugsy do all of the work. He doesn't mind.

Why Is Mugsy's Coffee So Tasty?
  • Mugsy recreates and automates the hand made pour over brewing process, one of the tastiest methods to get a great cup of coffee.
  • Mugsy's brewing process starts with the perfect grinding of your favorite whole bean coffee. Mugsy only works with whole bean coffee, this is because coffee only remains fresh for a very short period of time after it is ground. If you are not grinding just before brewing, you have already lost the battle for a perfect cup.

  • Mugsy knows exactly how much coffee to grind but you can also dial in an exact weight to perfectly craft your pour over. This will help those users of ours who are obsessed with the details to get results no other automated machine has ever come close to.
  • While your coffee is grinding, Mugsy has already started heating water to the perfect temperature for brewing. His internal PID controller makes sure the water temperature never overshoots the dialed in setting. He even learns when you typically make a cup of coffee and will start heating water before you even realize you want a cup of coffee. This feature is purely optional, and can be turned off to conserve energy.

  • Once the water is ready Mugsy's stainless steel pour over cone begins to rotate 360 degrees. As the cone is turning, the water spout sweeps across a 180 degree arc. When these two movements are combined, it perfectly recreates the movements of a hand crafted pour over. And almost any pattern you can think of can be automated using our simple interface.
  • Wait about 2-3 minutes depending on the brew settings and then enjoy your perfect cup cup of coffee!

No Apps, Simply Order Cofee With SMS, Email Or With Alexa!

  • Mugsy works the way you do. Send a text, a tweet or just ask Alexa for a fresh cup of coffee. Mugsy currently has integrations with email, sms, Twitter, Slack, Alexa and even the command prompt. With it's simple to use open ended API, we expect lots of new integrations to be coming out all the time. No need to learn a new clunky app, just communicate with Mugsy the way you already communicate with the world.

Mugsy Knows What Beans You're Using!
  • Mugsy always brews the best coffee because he knows exactly what beans you're using. Just scan your bag of beans with the built in barcode scanner and Mugsy will provide the best recipe for your tastes. And Mugsy's coffee database is growing every day.

  • Prefer to dial in your exact settings? No worries, Mugsy makes it easy to control every detail. Once you have it dialed in, share your recipe with all the other Mugsy's in the world.

Learning Through AI!
  • One of Mugsy's main goals was to make sure someone running off to work with zero time got the same high quality result as a coffee expert dialing in every setting. So Mugsy learns how to make coffee for one type of user by analyzing the habits of a second type of user. This is what makes that "Coffee Now" button so powerful. You will always get the best setting's for your specific beans and never the "bare minimum".

  • Mugsy also uses Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to learn how to make a cup of coffee that perfectly fits with your preferences. By tracking and analyzing the natural variability of the brewing process Mugsy can hone in on your specific preferences. Just let Mugsy know if you preferred today's cup or yesterday's and he will have everything he needs to make your perfect cup.

Built In RFI Reader!

  • Mugsy's main goal is to remove the friction from getting the best possible freshly brewed coffee you can with minimal effort. That's why he has a built in RFID reader. Just set your RFID enabled mug down onto the platform and Mugsy will start making your favorite brew.  And you don't need to buy any fancy extras, he ships with several waterproof RFID stickers for your favorite mugs.  Mugsy also comes with 2 RFID key fobs. Just swipe your keys and get a perfect cup with zero effort.

Go Green!

  • Mugsy's only waste is compostable coffee grounds. Thats basically a gift for your garden. Most importantly, that means no more pods filling up your garbage cans and landfills!

How Does Open Source Technology Make Mugsy Better?
  • Mugsy is built on top of the incredible Raspberry Pi computer and his software is open source.

  • Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that is used all over the world to help people learn about computing and software development. But it also allows you to control the world around you using the same software people use for apps and websites.
  • The Raspberry Pi inside Mugsy runs a standard Apache web server and uses the same programming languages people use all over the world every single day. Thats why you can write a new program for Mugsy using Javascript, Python, PHP or practically any other language.
  • And by using open source software, the entire world can work on and improve Mugsy everyday. Either by adding new functionality, fixing bugs or keeping his IOT functionality as secure as the safest websites. It also allows us to easily integrate powerful tech that already exists into Mugsy with minimal effort.
