The world’s most expensive domestic coffee machine designed by scientists from NASA is to go on sale for a whopping £7,000 – and is fitted with wifi and a webcam.

The super-high tech Blossom One Limited coffeemaker promises to make the perfect brew every time and was designed by former space engineers.

It even has a webcam so quick-response barcodes can be scanned in with specific brewing instructions – allowing users to share their perfect cup of coffee online.

But coffee buffs who want to check out the top-of-the-range device need to be quick – only ten will be made.

The metal and wooden counter-top machine will cost around £7000 when it goes on sale next year – the equivalent of around 3,000 standard lattes from Costa Coffee.

Spokesman Jeremy Kuempel said: “The world is ready for truly great-tasting coffee.

“To achieve this, our Blossom One Limited machine employs a novel brewing process that perfectly controls important brewing variables independently of environmental influences, empowering coffee lovers with the right tools to make truly great-tasting coffee.”

The machine was designed by a team of boffins who have previously worked at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Apple and NASA.

To produce the perfect coffee the machine has wireless internet to allow users to interface directly with the company that roasted the coffee beans.

The makers claim this ensures complex coffee brewing recipes direct from the supplier can be easily replicated at home.

The machine grants complete control of the brewing process-including temperature, pressure, volume and time.

Blossom Coffee say this allows the creation of drastically different cups of coffee from the same coffee beans.
