Just as one man's trash is another man's treasure, one dude's old fruit can end up being another dude's happy hour. Alchema is a new countertop device that ferments fruit into delicious homebrewed craft cider -- and it's as easy to use as a coffee machine.
Currently making waves on Kickstarter (it made its funding in record time) and at the nerdtastic tech expo CES, the Alchema makes homemade cider a simple process. While synched with your smartphone, it works in conjunction with an app that guides you along the normally tenuous homebrewing process. It comes pre-loaded with recipes to accommodate a wide variety of fruits from apples to pineapples to raspberries. Or, you can go rogue and make your own (maybe a batch of lychee-cranberry-starfruit cider is in your future).
