New Commuter Espresso Machine Also Great for Travelers

Coffee drinkers continue to be a luckier and luckier bunch.

Now there’s no need to hit the Starbucks drive-thru to deal with that morning commute. Well, at least if you are in France. Where we don’t think they have drive-thru Starbucks.

All that aside, we’re sure the new Handpresso Auto will be making its way to cities throughout the world sooner rather than later, especially in places where people get stuck in nasty gridlock on a daily basis. Yes, the Handpresso Auto allows you to make espresso in your car via the magic of the cigarette lighter.

You just have to be sure to leave your house with water and espresso grounds.

The device is about the size and shape of a flashlight and may match the interior of your car, if the interior of your car is black. Otherwise, you may have to forgo matching accessories.

Conceivably, this new device could be a boon for travelers who miss good espresso while on the road. Though we’re not yet sure of the available attachments and international plug adapters.

If you want to go above and beyond just crafting espresso in your car, there’s always the option of adding a sophisticated coffee cup to the mix. And what is more sophisticated than a mug with a protruding shark’s mouth at the bottom? We know – nothing!

The only thing missing in a trifecta of coffee insanity is a milk-foaming attachment. For the love of God, we need a milk-foaming attachment!
