"Anomatic Coffee Machine Model One", Ditmar Van Dam, 2014


Wood with grounded coffee
30 x 16.5 x 2 cm
An artist impression of the Anomatic Coffee Machine. It is about lost energy, energy consumption, using the Cradle to Cradle sustainability philosophy and what happens inside the coffee machine.
To get one espresso, the normal loss of energy is more than that of a hundred people walking. Their energy is stored in their bags of beans. The big wheel releases the energy at a certain level. Coffee will be ground and tampered with, water is boiled by friction (!) (instead of fire? electricity) of wood on metal and pumped under pressure through the coffee.
