Nespresso Vertuo Line Now Makes American Style Cup Of Joe

Nespresso_VertuoLine

Nespresso machines make some pretty delicious espresso, but if you’re the kind that likes to drink their coffee in industrial quantities, American-style, then these toys aren’t for you. That’s until now, since the company’s new Vertuo line is also able to churn out an 8 oz. cup of coffee in addition to its traditional 1.35 oz. shots. Sure, 8oz. doesn’t even come close to a Starbuck Venti, but this is sure to become a welcome addition nonetheless. It’s $300.

V12 Inspired Espresso Veloce For Gearhead Coffee Lovers

v12-espresso-machine

Not much is known about the above machine, the Espresso Veloce. It looks like a tiny V12 engine, but it makes coffee of a quality that we can only assume is superior. It’s made from premium materials like titanium, magnesium, and aluminum, and is limited in production to just 500 units. This means it’s likely in the same price range as the kinds of cars that sport V12 engines. It does seem to come with some nifty piston-shaped mugs, though that’s pretty much all we can tell you about it.

Whirlpool Puts Espresso Maker in Fridge Door

I have seen some weird convergence items before, but this side-by-side refrigerator makes a bit of sense. It is a bit odd to get something hot from a refrigerator, but aside from that putting an espresso maker into the door of a refrigerator is sort of cool.

The Whirlpool 20RI D4 Espresso should be available in January of 2008 at an unspecified price. The fridge is large with about 12 cubic feet of fridge storage and about 7.5 cubic feet of freezer space. You will need a large kitchen to use this refrigerator.

I prefer to get my caffeine intake in the form of soft drinks so I would have been more impressed if Whirlpool put a soft drink machine in the door. Still, adding a coffee maker makes more sense than putting a TV in the door like LG has done.
