“Poursteady makes pour-over coffee better.”
When the founders of Steady Equipment were working in robotics with NASA in California, they visited Blue Bottle Coffee, a very popular cafe, and noticed the lines were getting longer and longer even though the barista worked on three drip coffees at a time. The NASA engineer and roboticist wondered if there were a better way to brew coffee. In 2013, they built their first prototype and entered the New York Maker Faire and distributed more than 800 cups of coffee. Later they were featured on a website that reviews new products, and they won an award for their ingenuity. This led to the birth of Poursteady as an official product.Discover more
