App-enabled coffee machines are going to become much more common in the future. We have already covered a bunch of them in the past. The Arist happens to be another one that pairs with your smartphone to make great coffee for you at home. It lets you find new recipes to try from its cloud-based database. The companion app gives you control over various parts of the coffee-brewing process.
The device has support for NFC technology, so it can recognize your cup. It also remembers your favorite drinks to make your life easier. It seems like the perfect machine to conduct coffee experiments. You can get yours on Kickstarter.
