The diagram is of a machine used to make coffee from coffee beans and can be divided into three main sections – the top unit, the middle and the bottom.
Starting at the top, the machine has a light to indicate the power. On the other side of this red light is an angled section used for pouring. On the right hand side below the power light is a tube that is used to remove any overflow from the process. The lower section of this part of the device has a filter made of paper that is used to ensure smaller coffee grounds are separated.
The middle section has a metal filter which is used to remove larger coffee granules. On the diagram, there is a large, horizontal blade used for grinding.
The lower part of the machine has an oval shaped section for the water which is heated by an element at the bottom of the whole device. On the right hand side is a handle which has been ergonomically designed. Finally, there is a power cable protruding from the bottom right.
