Compact mechanical espresso and coffee maker combo
The compact mechanical espresso and coffee maker brewer was developed from scratch by PCV Group. We set out to create a brewer that takes up minimum space, leaving more space for the bean reservoir and knock box container.
The high-tech challenge
Most existing combo machines are large and unhandy, taking up excessive space and too often in need of servicing. Our challenge was to develop a brewer that powers every mechanical action in the brewing process with the use of just one motor, resulting in a compact product that doesn’t need filling or emptying all the time. We succeeded. The release of this product is set for 2018 by a world leading company in the professional coffee market.
We developed a complete and compact new mechanism for an espresso and coffee maker combo. This invention has been patented. Apart from downsizing the machine, we have also succeeded in improving the brewing quality.
This project started out with a disfunctional combo brewer and a request put to us to make it work properly with as little changes as possible to the existing mechanism. After a thorough investigation of all critical parameters there could be but one conclusion: to start again from scratch. Using the principles of kinetic architecture we developed an all-in-one motion solution for a compact brewer with prolonged product longevity.
