   One of the most bothering remarks on software, I have ever heard,
   is weather this or that thing can make coffee. So, Linux
   DOES make coffee. And it tastes good, instead!


The main problem is how to control the coffee machine with the
computer, so that it will be controlled by software. This generally
means an ON/OFF switch implemented as a circuit which controls the
coffee-machine's power supply.
