Drink Coffee, Not Tea.

Fiat 500L to include espresso maker option.

July 17, 2012 · Filed Under Equipment and Supplies, Gimmicks, Humor · Comment 

Fiat 500L's in-car espresso maker.Yes, it’s true.  The Fiat 500L will be the first production consumer automobile to include an espresso machine as a trim option.

Ridiculous?  probably.  Marketable?  Absolutely.  Available in the US?  Odds are slim.

Let’s be honest, would you really want an espresso made by your car from a tiny pack of pre-ground Lavazza espresso blend?  I guess that depends on how addicted and how desperate you are.  I know I’ve been there.

Check out more pictures and more information (including a promo video from Fiat, and another video from Autoblog that shows the contraption in all its.. well.. glory?) by clicking here.

Manual Brewing Workshop: Brown Coffee Co, San Antonio

Manual Brewing Workshop, October 23, 2010 6-9pm. Brown Coffee Co. San Antonio, TX.

It seems as though this is the season for events in the coffee community.  This time, Brown Coffee Company is hosting a Manual Brew Methods workshop in San Antonio.  Manual brew methods gained steam when Starbucks bought the Coffee Equipment Company(inventors and sellers of the Clover brewer that made waves.. for awhile), and baristas were suddenly in search of a replacement for the cup-at-a-time marketing tool known as the Clover 1S.

Brewing is not the same as brewing well.  Manual brew methods require skill, attention, and concentration.  Most coffee establishments lack these basic requirements, but there are a few institutions who have, or who plan to implement a cup-at-a-time brew method to their list of options for their ever-discerning patrons to choose from.

Here is the scoop:
