Looks like an $11,000 Aeropress to me too. It does have a built in water heater.

OMG - they are completely out of the minds.  No note about 
temperature or anything.
I could (almost) wrap my head around $1,111 but not 10x that.

All,
 
Did you see the blog. The writing doesn't sound like veterans. Sounds a bit like newbies to the scene.
 
Check out this statement in their "About" page.
 
" Blossom started by trying to answer that simple question: What really happens when coffee and water are mixed? "
 
Did the science teacher assign this, or was this a side project while hanging out in your parent's mansion? Where do they get their money to do this?

All,
 
I have to correct myself a bit. I should very much welcome any newbies to the scene. But please get connected with those who are already in the coffee scene. It seems so strangely disconnected. They are a bunch of nerds if you look at the about page. I hope they prove me wrong and come up with something out of this world that no-one could expect. But if they are entertaining the use of pods on an $11,000 machine, those pods have better be some hi-tech marvels that keep grounded coffee frozen-in-time, as if it is freshly ground.
 
-Rob
