    Rocket Portavia portable espresso machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Due out at the end of this year apparently. At around $4k, it's a bit of a luxury item

    Google rocket portavia and you can catch a few youtube vids.

    Too right. You would need to add casters.

    Haha, that was my first thought when I saw it: truck muffler. It makes the whole machine over 50cm high which means it might struggle to fit under some cupboards.

    Only if this could be adapted to run of 12V on the back of the motorcycle... you could make some good coin sitting in rush-hour traffic!

    You need something like a Goldwing, with an extra car battery in each pannier and a 10A inverter strapped somewhere away from the coffee machine so it didn't get too hot. I'd hate to try and ride that in stop-start traffic!
