    Oddest espresso machines

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    What are the most unusually desigend espresso machines that you can think of?

    My mind springs to the Elektra and Pavoni towering monstrosities, but also to desig icons such as the bugatti machine.

    This was brought on by this comic

    Hahaha, that’s awesome. I’m sure some manufacturer is making one of those now....

    Love the ‘Flamed Orange Peel Mocha’ on the blackboard.

    The comic is partially set in the cafe, the creator comes up with some awesome "specials" (e.g. latte seasoned with the tears of a hipster)

    That is *very* reminiscent of a bar tap for beer!

    I take it you are referring to the Bugatti Diva? A design icon?! You must be joking! Like putting a Mercedes badge on a Trabant and saying it must be a good car.

    These ridiculous things things sell at auction for less than a second hand Gaggia classic.

    but ok - *this is all subjective so i go for this (courtesy of HB).

    Loved the cartoon by the way. Looks a bit like an Elektra micro casa thats been wacked by a rolling pin (a lot).
