Startup Showcase: Stagg EKG+
Stagg EKG+, a Bluetooth enabled Electric Pour-Over Kettle, raised almost $500,000 on Kickstarter and is launching in September. In addition to beautiful design (the stovetop version is featured at NY MoMA) and pro-level functionality (past winners of the U.S. Brewers Cup have used Stagg in competition), Stagg EKG+ is smart and talks to the Acaia scale and the Baratza grinder for a connected café or home coffee bar experience. Stagg EKG+, all Acaia scales, and the Baratza Sette 270W work in tandem to consistently reproduce a cafe's recipes with ease and precision at the touch of a button. Top baristas or roasters can share their favorite recipes and home enthusiasts can try to re-create.
