UNA Smart is a startup company founded by graduate students at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) that aims to revolutionize the way people experience coffee. UNA is developing a smart, sustainable and portable coffee maker that will allow users to brew their own coffee and tea on-the-go; that means anywhere and anytime. With a mobile app, users will be able to set timers for their coffee to be ready, track daily consumption, track caffeine intake, buy coffee for their friends, and reorder UNA Coffee Pods automatically when the UNA Coffee Maker identifies that they are running low of coffee. UNA is focusing on real sustainability problems, offering an alternative to the non-environmental friendly K-cups. Being greener, the biodegradable coffee pods will offer the best of the Brazilian coffee. It is really easy to use. You just need to fill with water of any temperature, insert an UNA biodegradable coffee pod, hit a button either in the coffee maker or in the mobile app, and within a few minutes the coffee will be ready!
