Bean

Gonzales Portas, Course Convenor

Undertaken as part of the Industrial Design honours program, this capstone project entitled ‘Bean’ is a bench top coffee roaster for those who want to make their own coffee at home. The design breaks away from a conventional coffee roaster to fit within a domestic kitchen aesthetic. The machine’s glass drum and knobs give users greater control in the process of roasting, and a ‘roast by feel’ experience through sight, touch, and smell rather than mindless digital displays.
