Many months ago The Espresso reported on a start up called Juicero that was being funded by some of the biggest names in the Silicon Valley. Juicero is essentially a cold-press juicer that lets you produce a quality nutrient rich juice from a countertop machine similar to a Nespresso.
The proprietary Juicero packs are filled with fruit and veggies chopped specifially to ensure that they give you all the goodness as if you were getting it from a farm. The packs are stamped with QR codes, which the machine scans and uses to determine if the fruits and vegetables are fresh enough for it to press into an eight-ounce cup of juice for you. If it’s not, the pack is discarded. It’s a Wi-Fi connected device, which means if the Internet’s out, there'll be no juice for you.
Now, we at The Espresso office haven't tried it yet but we love the concept. It solves a problem for all of us and if it's anything like its sister machine, Nespresso, then this is going to be a winner. The sell for their product is a 'farm to glass' philosophy. There’s so much to like about this concept that if it delivers it will be gold.
