What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

We at Latasse recognised the damage being done by plastic and metal coffee pods which are very difficult to recycle and becoming more and more of an environmental problem. They also represent terrible value for money per cup, not to mention an inferior brew compared to freshly ground coffee. So we got our heads together and decided to do something about it!

At over £5 for a pack, have you ever considered the actual cost per year of using coffee pods?  By using just coffee beans at a fraction of the cost, our machine will pay for itself in months, and you won't be churning out un-recyclable plastic or wasting finite resources like aluminium. It just makes so much sense to ditch the pods!

At Latasse, we've developed our own uniquely powerful system featuring our exclusive Opti-Grind and Dial-a-Cup features, together with steam pressure a coffee shop would be proud of. Out of this was born the home barista system we call Latasse, and our first machine, the Finesse.

The Latasse Opti-Grind system is the guarantee of a coffee shop flavour in your own home. The single burr grinder delivers smooth, ultra fine ground coffee on demand. The unique three way Opti-Grind system delivers freshly ground coffee at the volume and grind level of your preference, brewed exactly how you like it, all at the turn of a dial.

Latasse Dial-a-Cup feature allows you to select the volume and strength of your coffee, again at the turn of the dial. Select one or two cups with individual grinds for each cup, and an exclusive pre-brew system for maximum flavour. 


Each of our machines will be individually tested at our factory for quality and performance; and then shrink wrapped and double boxed to guarantee it arrives safely to your door. 

When you first use your machine it will be set to the default levels and ready to go. Once you are familiar with your machine, you can refine and select the grind level that you prefer, and then you can also fine tune the dosage of coffee beans per cup.

Each time you make a coffee you can individually set the water volume using the front dial and cup buttons - choose from espresso to latte with the turn of the dial. Perfect coffee every time, with just the push of a button. The Latasse steam function will amaze you with its power and heating speed. Milk is frothed in just a few seconds, with foam a barista would be proud of. Hot water is also delivered on demand with the push of a button for warming cups, and of course for tea lovers.

When this product goes to market it will be retailing at £695.

Risks and challenges

We have spent the last 2 years developing the product, brand and using our passion for coffee and our digital expertise to bring the product to life.

We are now at the stage where we require additional funding for the final manufacturing process and shipment from our factory.

This requires a further injection of capital, raised hopefully through pre-orders, to help turn the dream into reality.

We are fully committed and passionate about this project and determined to make it a success, and bring to market a cost effective and environmentally friendly coffee machine for the home.
