Velopresso – Coffee Cart On Wheels

If you’re going to spend a lot on fancy coffee, you should at least get that coffee in a fun and/or interesting way.

Enter: The Velopresso

Velopresso

The Velopresso is a coffee cart on wheels, designed to stay off the grid while enabling a single barista to run the entire operation. The cart itself was designed from the ground up around a custom rear-steer tricycle, a unique pedal-driven grinder, and a robust gas-fired lever espresso machine. The result is a fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology – old tech meets new tech, pedal power meets caffeine power, and engineering meets aesthetics.

And since there’s no motors to run or electricity needed, the Velopress doesn’t make a lot of noise, meaning you can have your coffee in relative silence as you enjoy the scenery around you.

If you’re interested in buying your own Velopresso, they’re taking pre-orders in early Summer of 2013, though the company is based out of the UK, so you may need to factor in some shipping if your coffee dreams take you elsewhere.

Turkey + Dunkin’ Donuts = tarDunkin’

TurDunkin

Before serving your guests a freshly made Cherpumple, you’re going to need a main course worthy of such a delicious desert.

So what goes well with pie-on-pie pandemonium?

How about the tarDunkin’, a turkey brined in Dunkin’ Donuts Coolattas, stuffed with Munchkins and served with coffee gravy and mashed hash browns?

Yup; it doesn’t get much better than that.

Apple Pie + Cherry Pie + Pumpkin Pie = Cherpumple

Cherpumple

What the Turducken is to birds, the Cherpumple is to cakes.

A Cherpumple is an apple pie, a cherry pie and a pumpkin pie each cooked inside of a cake, and then combined into another cake and then covered in frosting.

The example you see here weighed in at more than 20 pounds, and took 200 guests more than 4 hours to finish.

When Girl Scout Cookie time rolls around each year (they sell them from October through March) I’m usually good for at least a few boxes of Thin Mints and Samoas, but do you know what varieties are the most popular?

Wired put together this delicious looking pie chart to compare sales data, and show you how your favorites stack up:
