Aroma personal espresso machine
I have just in the last week come to terms with my caffeine addiction when I was observed having Jennifer Jason Leigh in Rush-like crashes when I didn't have a coffee by mid-afternoon. At one point I got desperate enough to guzzle Red Bull just so I could stand up. I wish I'd had an Aroma espresso machine instead. It's a personal espresso machine that's small enough to carry in your handbag or briefcase so you can brew a cup no matter where you are. The clear cylinder lets you watch the coffee brew as you agonizingly wait for it to finish.
I am so sad that I can't actually get this yet. David Mansueto, the Australian designer of Aroma, is seeking help to bring this very important product to market.
In the meantime, chocolate espresso beans are a really good way to have portable caffeine fixes.
