    You have to ask yourself Why Why Why :-?

    I guess too many late night substances were used in the thought processes behind this product.

    That is insane!

    I feel guilty for being a coffee drinking human now.

    I wonder if these artsy folk were being "ironic" when they made this object resemble a poo!

    Who says coffee people have no sense of humour. But with the rainforest timber and designer wiring board, hell, Id buy it!

    Actually, cradling a baby produces almost the same result, just a little runnier...

    BREAKING NEWS:

    I am proud to announce that after a day of furious negoitiating I have secured the naming rights to a version of this item that will be on sale in December and feature a red floppy hat with white fur trim.

    I have named it: Mr HANKEY the CHRISTMAS GRINDER!

    You may have overlooked the heading of the link "A critical design piece, aimed to criticize societys consumerism and our consumption culture" so they werent being serious about it.

    I actually think it looks great but youd look like a total knob using it. ::)

    The problem with design is that it is impossible to ever know if they are serious or not...

    Well now I know what has been wrong with my technique all this time. Apparently i need to look like I am in a Kelvin Klein advert while enjoying my morning cuppa :)

    Is that what you mean when you refer to a naked portafilter????
