This coffee machine is inspired by some of dieter Rams design. Not the Braun coffee machine but more the radios, hifi and loudspeakers.
It's composed of three parts:
1) The machine itself with all the required mechanical parts
2) the coffee pot with a detachable wool-felt cover and an stainless steel filter (no need to add a paper filter). The wool-felt has two goals:1) keep the coffee warm after the coffee is made; 2) avoid burning taking the coffee pot and serving the coffee.
3) the water tank. It's also used to measure the amount of coffee beans needed for a particular number of cups.
The coffee machine is made of european cherry wood and lacquered metal sheet.
The central button has two utility: 1) select the roasting level described in words (New England, Amercian, Light French, French, Italian; 2) select the grinding level.
The coffee making process is displayed in an old radio style display backlighted when the coffee machine is on.
Have a nice coffee time.
