Further, the upper surface of the dispersing member 55 may be a flat surface, but may be formed in a convex shape upward.

On the other hand, on the outer side of the second rotary case 32, there is provided a coffee collecting chamber member 80 for receiving and temporarily storing the coffee liquid extracted through the extraction port 33 to the outside. The coffee hopper housing member 80 is provided with a heater 81 for heating the coffee liquid to maintain the temperature.

2, a collecting box 85 for receiving the coffee powder residue discharged through the skirt portion 34 of the second rotary case 32 is movably provided at a lower portion of the rotary case 30 Can be installed.

A scraper 58 for scraping off the coffee powder adhering to the inner surface of the filter 60 when the mixing member 50 moves downward is provided on the mixing portion 52 of the mixing member 50, As shown in FIG. The scraper 58 is preferably made of a flexible resin such as silicone or a thin plastic so as not to damage the filter 60.

The thus configured coffee liquid extracting apparatus of the present invention operates as follows.

When power is supplied to the coil 22 from the stator 20 in the state as shown in Fig. 1, the electromagnetic force generated between the core 21 of the stator 20 and the permanent magnet 25 causes the first rotating case 31 and the second rotary case 32 rotate slowly at a set speed. As the first rotary case 31 and the second rotary case 32 rotate, the mixing member 50 coupled to the second rotary case 32 also rotates together.

At this time, when coffee powder is fed through the coffee inlet 42 of the raw material supply member 40 and hot water is introduced through the hot water inlet 41, the flow of the coffee powder through the flow passage 40a of the raw material supply member 40 The coffee powder and hot water are fed into the mixing member 50 downward. The coffee powder and hot water dropped into the mixing member 50 flow into the chamber 52d of the mixing unit 52 through the inlet 51 of the mixing member 50. At this time, And is evenly distributed to the outside of the chamber 52d by the member 55. [

When the first rotating case 31 and the second rotating case 32 and the mixing member 50 are rotated at a high speed, a mixture of the coffee powder and hot water introduced into the chamber 52d of the mixing member 50, And then the coffee liquid is extracted. The coffee liquid extracted from the mixture passes through the filter 60, and the coffee powder residue remains in contact with the inner surface of the filter 60 as it is. The coffee liquid that has passed through the filter 60 is discharged to the outside through the extraction port 33 and is collected in the coffee liquid storage chamber member 80. At this time, the coffee liquid collector member 80 can be heated by the heater 81 to maintain the extracted coffee liquid at a constant temperature.

The coffee liquid collected in the coffee collecting chamber member 80 is discharged to the outside and is contained in a cup or in a separate container to be consumed.

Meanwhile, hot steam generated in the chamber 52d while the coffee powder and the hot water are introduced into the chamber 52d of the mixing member 50 and the coffee liquid is extracted is supplied to the upper inlet 51, And the flow path 40a of the raw material supply member 40 and is discharged to the outside through the steam outlet 43. [

When the coffee extracting operation is completed after a predetermined time has elapsed, the power applied to the core 21 of the stator 20 is cut off and the rotation of the first rotating case 31 and the second rotating case 32 is stopped .

Subsequently, the actuator 71 operates as shown in Fig. 2, and the lifting rod 72 is lifted. As the lifting rod 72 rises, the link member 74 rotates and the distal end of the link member 74 moves downward, whereby the raw material supply member 40 is moved downward with respect to the fixed case 10 .

As the raw material supply member 40 is lowered, the mixing member 50 is lowered against the elastic force of the elastic member 53. When the mixing member 50 descends with respect to the second rotary case 32 and reaches the skirt portion 34, the side surface of the mixing portion 52 is opened and the mixing portion 52 is provided on both sides of the mixing portion 52 The stored coffee powder residue can be discharged to the outside. When the scraper 58 protrudes radially outward from the upper end of the mixing member 50, the scraper 58 scrapes the inner surface of the filter 60, It is possible to cleanly remove the coffee powder residue adhered to the coffee beans.

In this state, when the rotating case 30 and the mixing member 50 are rotated by applying power to the coil 22 of the stator 20 again, the coffee powder remnant inside the mixing portion 52 is returned to the outside And discharged to the lower collecting box 85 to be collected.

When the removing operation of the coffee powder scum is completed, the actuator 71 is lowered again and the lift rod 72 is retracted, and the raw material supply member 40 is raised, contrary to the above. As a result, the mixing member 50 is also raised by the elastic force of the elastic member 53 to return to the original position as shown in Fig. 1, and a new coffee extraction operation can be performed.

As described above, the coffee liquid extracting apparatus of the present invention comprises a stator 20 having a coil 22 to which electricity is applied to the stationary case 10, and a rotary case 30 into which the coffee powder is inserted, The rotating case 30 rotates at a high speed by the electromagnetic force generated between the stator 20 and the permanent magnet 25 by arranging the permanent magnets 25 facing each other in the circumferential direction so that the coffee liquid is extracted can do.

Therefore, the rotary case 30 can be easily separated and cleaned from the fixed case 10, and the entire structure can be simplified.

Further, since the rotation case 30 can be rotated in the normal direction and the reverse direction by controlling the power applied to the coil 22, the rotation speed can be easily controlled, have.

In particular, since the rotary case 30 can be suddenly stopped by using an electric brake between the stator 20 and the permanent magnet 25, there is an advantage that the rotary case 30 can be safely stopped in an emergency situation, .

When the filter 60 and the mixing member 50 of the coffee liquid extracting apparatus are to be separated and cleaned, the lower end of the clamp 35 is pushed to press the clamp 35 to the first The second rotary case 32 is disengaged from the first rotary case 31 and then the second rotary case 32 is disengaged from the engagement groove 37 of the rotary case 31 to release the fixed state, The member 50 and the filter 60 may be cleanly cleaned.

Accordingly, since the mixing member 50 and the filter 60, in which the coffee powder and hot water are introduced and the extraction process of the coffee liquid is progressed, can be easily separated and cleaned, it is advantageous in terms of hygiene.

When extracting the coffee liquid by centrifugal force using the above-described coffee liquid extracting apparatus, a separate cock 90 can be attached to and detached from the extraction port 33 of the second rotary case 32 as shown in Fig. 7 So that the extracted coffee liquid can be reliably guided to the inside of the coffee liquid storage chamber member 80.

The first and the second rotating cases 31 and 32 are configured to be detachable so that the first rotating case 31 is fixed to the inside of the fixed case 10, Only the two rotating cases 32 were separated and cleaned.

However, as shown in Fig. 9, the first rotary case 31 and the second rotary case 32 are integrally formed, and the first rotary case 31 is configured to be detachable from the fixed case 10 The first rotary case 31 and the second rotary case 32 may be separated from each other by separating the first rotary case 31 from the fixed case 10.

10 to 12 show a coffee extracting apparatus according to another embodiment of the present invention in which an elastic member 53 is not provided outside the charging unit 51 as compared with the first embodiment described above A plurality of (for example, three) spring mount bars 56 are provided on the lower surface of the mixing portion 52 so as to penetrate the upper surface of the mixing portion 52 and the upper surface of the second rotary case 32 And the spring mount bar 56 is provided with a compression spring 57 for elastically supporting the spring mount bar 56 against the second rotary case 32 while applying an elastic force upward. The configuration and operation are the same as the example.

Therefore, when the raw material supply member 40 and the mixing member 50 are lowered by the lifting means during the discharge operation of the coffee powder residue, the compression spring 57 is compressed and the raw material supply member 40 The mixing member 50 can be raised again by the elastic force of the compression spring 57 to return to the original position.

As described above, when the first rotating case 31, the second rotating case 32, and the mixing member 50 rotate at a high speed and the coffee liquid is discharged to the outside through the extraction port 33, The coffee liquid and the steam are scattered while the steam is discharged to the outside, so that the coffee liquid pool member 80 may not be collected properly or a safety accident due to hot steam may occur.

In order to prevent such a phenomenon, in FIG. 13 to FIG. 17, the coffee liquid is discharged from the outside of the extraction port 33 of the rotary case 30 after the energy is reduced by the primary collision, Which is condensed into condensed water and then discharged together with the coffee liquid, is proposed.

The second rotary case 32 is rotatably mounted on a fixing bracket 12 fixed to the fixed case 10 (see Fig. 10) Shaped buffer unit 100 for separating the coffee liquid and steam discharged through the extracting port 33 to the outside of the coffee maker and guiding and discharging the coffee liquid downward and condensing and discharging the steam.
