Is there anything your coffee machine could do that would really impress you?

If you're a coffee aficionado, the Bonaverde Berlin might just do it.

As Adam Balkin learned at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it claims it's the world's first roast, grind and brew coffee maker.

"An all-in-one process," Alex Onaindia of Bonaverde said. "How it works is, you have these green beans that are sourced from farmers directly from countries like Nicaragua and Colombia."

You put the green beans in the machine, and an RFID profile chip will let you decide if you want a lighter roast, darker roast or other options.

"That starts the process, and within 15 minutes you have a full pot of coffee which has six cups, give or take, depending on how much you fill it," Onaindia said.

"It is the freshest coffee you will have. This coffee lacks bitterness, acidity, all of that," he said. "So you can really drink it without adding cream, milk, sugar, any of that. It's truly the freshest coffee you'll taste."

So if you haven't purchased one already on Kickstarter, it will be out this summer for $800. If you know a coffee snob in your life, start saving now.
