It uses special “pods” filled with coffee powder that are then electronically deposited like ink or filament across the surface of a foamy coffee.
Luckily for single coffee addicts in the East London area, some PR genius at Match saw the potential of the Ripple Maker, and decided to set up Espresso Yourself, a (sadly) temporary scheme that will grace the Shoreditch Boxpark (a pop-up mall made up of shipping containers) next week.
In what is almost certainly a UK first, and perhaps an anywhere first, online dating service has turned to 3D printed coffee foam to help lonely Londoners find their soulmate.
On January 19-20, the hugely popular online service will launch “Espresso Yourself,” a temporary coffee shop in Shoreditch, East London, where singletons can order their coffee topped with a 3D printed foam image of an eligible member.
If the user likes what they see, they can click on the picture which will take them to the Match app where they can view the profile in full.
If the idea of 3D printed coffee sounds unfamiliar to you, then you’ll need to rack your brains for memories of last year’s CES.
