Can your grinder really make that big of a difference in the quality of your coffee or espresso? Ask an owner of the HG One Grinder ($900), and they'll likely tell you "Yes." Designed to rival the quality of a commercial grinder in a hand-powered, household-friendly format, it features conical burr grinders that transform whole beans into an elegantly balanced blend of large and fine granules. And thanks to precise engineering, it should outlast your coffee maker for sure, and possibly even you.
It's not quite like having an automated coffee shop in your kitchen, but it's getting close. The Jura Giga 5 Coffee Center ($5,500) is a Swiss-made, self-contained unit that can make up to two drinks at a time. Features include a color display with 19 individually programmable specialty drinks, dual ceramic grinders, dual heating systems, and dual pumps. It can make espressos, cappuccinos, or lattes, so pretty much most of Starbucks' menu, minus the syrup.
Just in case you've been wishing for an espresso machine that's shaped like a car engine, we bring you the Espresso Veloce V12 Machine ($TBA). Limited to just 500 pieces, this insane machine is handcrafted from common automotive materials like aluminum, magnesium, and titanium, and features a filter that resembles a coffee filter, dispensers that resemble tailpipes, and other little touches that tie the Veloce to its racing inspiration. Perfect for the garage, racing-themed man cave, or just a standard kitchen that happens to use a Ferrari as a dinner table.
