One thing is for sure, with the Concrete Espresso Machine, you will never have to worry about knocking your espresso machine over – unless of course you’re the Incredible Hulk! That’s because this espresso machine is like no other. It’s built out of solid concrete! Israeli student, Shmuel Linski, from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design came up with solid concept product. The machine features metal parts alongside a unique and very chic concrete encasing.
Why concrete? Linkski had this to say:
“Concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product.”

You might be familiar more with ThinkGeek as a place to purchase geeeky apparel or gadgets. You might not know that they have an entire section of their store devoted to caffeinated goods! That’s right, alongside their caffeinated candy, drinks and lollipops, you’ll find this impressive little device – the Mypressi Handheld Espresso Machine.
“Consequently, coffee snobs (we can call them that because many of us are thus self-professed) require a lot of precision in their brewing instruments. Take this new portable espresso dispenser, for example! Many espresso machines of the hand-pump variety give a strong burst of pressure to force the water through the grounds, but the pressure dies off quickly, leaving your espresso a muddy mess of over and under-extracted coffee. The Mypressi Handheld Espresso Machine uses canisters of compressed N20 to give you a half-dozen or more strong pulls at an even 9-bar (135psi) from beginning to end. The resulting cup is hot, flavorful, with a mild bitterness and strong crema.”

I know, it’s espresso and not expresso but French based coffee maker, Malongo, decided to go with the sexy and unorthodox spelling. In any case, the machine looks great despite having a bulky upper body. With Oh Expresso you have a choice of 7 coffee and 3 tea blends and it comes in three different colors: gold, black and white.
“This machine uses the 123 Spresso concept, a simply and effective system using pre-dosed coffee pods. It is a real espresso machine with a pressure of 16 bars. How does it work? Just slot the pod into the top of the machine, select the type of coffee you want to make and stop it once the coffee is served as you like it. The used pod is then automatically ejected into the box beneath the machine. It does not have a steam function for making cappuccinos.”
