The Brand describes this aesthetic innovation:

The ‘Barista Beetle’ is a concept coffee machine, designed for the home and office, that pays tribute to Volkswagen’s lasting influence on the wider field of product design. VW’s unique style and personality has been extended to an interior product that has become part of people’s daily lives.

A unique identity

The shape of the product was designed in a formal language by reinterpreting the VW Beetle’s coupe-style loop line, the frameless door, and the alloy wheel that followed the curved slope of the side. The dynamic colour of the ‘Barista Beetle’ gives the user an enjoyable user experience by giving life to the atmosphere of a static modern interior.


Balancing form and function

The top part of the sliding wing cover was designed with a metaphorical meaning to inform the beginning of the ceremony to eat coffee, and it was designed to be able to slide in both directions. Moving the sliding cover to the right, the user can insert a coffee capsule. By moving the sliding cover to the left, you can easily fill the water in the built-in water tank. If you need to clean the water tank, you can remove the water tank located on the back of the coffee machine.
