What Makes the Ripple Maker More Than (Just) a Coffee Printer?
There’s a fierce battle waging in the world of latte art among baristas and latte art printers, with baristas on the one side crying to defend the craft of hand-poured or painted designs, and food tech innovators on the other, racing to meet the demands of hungry consumers.
We appreciate the distinction. And we believe there is a need and room for both. Hand-poured latte art elevates the barista as artist; foam printers enable drink art at scale.
One cannot replace the other, nor should they try.
But because they have the digital advantage, coffee printer machines need to work harder to demonstrate over-the-top design capabilities. If you’re a customer in the market for a latte art printer, and you’re looking to test drive a few models, you’ll quickly discover that, as in the automobile market, the range of options for coffee printer devices are very broad when it comes to quality and innovation.
We don’t mean to toot our own horn or tap our own 7-inch display interface, but the Ripple Maker is so much more than a coffee printer that it’s practically on a different scale than the generic foam printers available on sites like Amazon or Alibaba.
