Behind the design | xBloom Bean Recognition System

We love nothing more than having you along for this journey and making incredible coffee together, so in our latest blog post, we'll give you a behind-the-scenes look at the design of our innovative recognition system. Let’s get into it!

You've probably been wondering how the xBloom coffee machine recognizes and extracts the perfect bean and we don’t blame you! It's not magic, but it is pretty darn close. 

Behind the Inspiration

We knew we wanted to design a coffee machine that was sleek, easy to use, and most importantly, produced great-tasting coffee. But we also wanted to give users the ability to customize their coffee experience. After much trial and error (and many, many cups of coffee), we finally landed on a design that we think is pretty darn close.

One of the most important aspects of the xBloom coffee machine is the bean recognition system. At its core, the xBloom machine is designed to make great coffee. But in order to do that, it needs to be able to identify the type of bean being used. 

You might be wondering why that is, since it's not a feature that you come across on other coffee machines. But trust us, it's a vital part of making sure that your coffee is always perfect. And we are about to explain why! 

Introducing the xBloom Bean Recognition Technology

The patented xBloom bean recognition technology is our way to infuse soul into your coffee, cup after cup. Αt the bottom of each xPod, there is a unique encrypted RFID that stores all the information, including an automated brewing recipe specifically about this bean, its origin, tasting notes and the whole story behind it. 

All you need to do is place the xPod near the top of the machine, and the machine will be able to recognize the bean. From there, the machine will automatically adjust the settings to ensure that your coffee is extracted perfectly. The bean recognition system is just one of the ways we've designed the xBloom machine to make your life easier and help you make great coffee.


But how do we guarantee great tasting coffee? We work with expert roasters and baristas to understand and decipher the flavor potential of every bean brought to you. All our coffee beans are tested by our quality control team through the coffee cupping process, and then we vigorously experiment with the different parameters in our algorithms to understand the effect each one has on the taste of the coffee. Finally, we store all the information on the RFID and attune our machine to brew at its best.

We know that great coffee is a result of using high-quality beans and taking the time to perfect your brewing method. But we also believe that making great coffee should be easy and convenient. That's why we've designed the xBloom machine to be as user-friendly as possible, with features like the bean recognition system that make it easy to get a great cup of coffee, every time.

However, that doesn't mean you can't put your own spin on it! The xBloom machine comes with a customizable settings menu that lets you adjust parameters like the grind setting, water temperature and coffee to water ratio. So go ahead and customize your xBloom machine to suit your taste!

Behind the Beans

Beyond just making great coffee, we also want to provide you with an amazing coffee experience. Part of that is giving you the opportunity to learn about the beans being used in your cup.

The unique encrypted RFID provides information on each of the beans being used. This way, you can learn about the different origins, tasting notes and stories behind the coffee. We think it's important for you to know where your coffee comes from and how it was made, so that you can appreciate all the hard work that goes into making a great cup of coffee.

We also believe in transparency and traceability, which is why we provide information on every bean used in our coffees. We want you to know exactly what you're drinking, and we're committed to providing you with the best possible coffee experience.

Now you understand why our patented bean recognition system is so important to the xBloom coffee machine. It's not just a gimmick - it's a vital part not only for making sure that your coffee is always perfect, but also for giving you a holistic coffee experience by providing information on the beans being used. So, what are you waiting for? Try out the xBloom machine today and taste the difference!
