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.

The Page Turner

When you’re reading a book, you probably don’t think about what it takes to turn each page.

But what if you could turn each page turn into an event?

That’s what Joseph Herscher has done with The Page Turner, a Rube Goldberg machine that lets you sip coffee while waiting for the page to turn, and let the machine take care of the rest.

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.

Coffee Joulies – Magic Beans For Your Drink

Coffee Joulies

Coffee Joulies are magic beans that keep your coffee (or any other hot beverage) at the perfect temperature.

First, they absorb extra thermal energy in your coffee when its served too hot, cooling it down to a drinkable temperature three times faster than normal. Next, they release that stored energy back into your coffee keeping it in the right temperature range twice as long.

Coffee Joulies are currently available as a project on Kickstarter, but with the interest that they’ve already generated, they shouldn’t have any problem getting the funding they need to become a real product.

Get a set of five now for just $40, and you’ll even save yourself 20% off the final retail cost.
