The Velopresso

What do you get when you combine your love for biking and coffee? Product designers Amos Reid and Lasse Oiva did just that to create a mobile espresso bar named the "Velopresso."

The duo designed the custom trike from the grounds up with environmental sustainability in mind. The Velopresso has sports a pedal-driven grinder and a gas-fired espresso machine. No electricity, no motors, no noise (except for the noise of the coffee beans being ground). Plus, it's a gorgeous work of engineering and art!

If you think about it, the Velopresso is a feedback loop. The human powers the coffee machine, and in turn, the coffee powers the human! Take a look at more over at Velopresso's website: Link - via Dear Coffee I Love You

What does this thing weigh when fully loaded. the water tank alone must weigh about 40 lbs. Can't imagine pedaling that much weight around even with a very low gearing on the bike.
