First featured on CNN earlier this year, The technology works by combining 3D printing technology with an ink-jet system that prints out natural coffee extract, called Ripple Pods.
Images can be taken from Ripples’ content library, or customers can submit an image from their camera roll which will be transformed into foam art at the venue. No artificial colors are added as the Ripple maker uses coffee scale to recreate the images on the foam of the coffee.
The system also automatically adjusts to a range of coffee cups up to 7 inches high and 4.5 inches wide. Lufthansa will be among the first global brands to use this technology & it is expected to be rolled out on their First & Business Class lounges.
