Last month, the Korean design studio presented Dutch Lab Gothicism, a tough $ 7,300 coffee machine that looks like it could have been built into Notre Dame. Nevertheless, this cold bread sample was not enough to slaughter the studio’s thirst for larger masterpieces than Steampunk. The latest creation is called AKMA 3000mL. The machine takes its name from the Korean word for “devil” and the designers at the Dutch Lab say that the forbidden design is intended to add “a mysterious and dark aura to the Steampunk concept”, giving the mechanism a “fictitious and amazing evil” feeling . The orb on top really screams “supervillan” to me. AKMA does not boil water. As a Dutch lab explains on its website, all its monumental coffee machines use a cold-brew technique based on gravity, of which these hunting towers have no shortage. Water begins in the upper piston and flows at a controlled rate through the second piston, containing the ground coffee. (The bases must be thicker than the espresso seeds but thinner than those used for drinking coffee.) Another filter ensures that the basics do not go through. A bottom flask is where everything is mixed to perfection. Start saving now so you can get one of these beauties for your evil lair.
