Make Way For Velopresso, the Coffee Shop on Wheels

by Hazel Chua

Coffee shops make it easier to grab some of your favorite brew on the go by setting up drive-thru windows. But why should you go there to get your coffee, when you can make the coffee (sort of) come to you ? The answer is, you shouldn’t.

velopresso_1Velopresso is a mobile coffee-making machine that’s driven by pedal power. I think you can say that it is basically a coffee shop on wheels. Think of them as baristas on bikes – or more accurately, baristas on trikes. Velopresso won’t be able to serve you any waffles or sandwiches at this point, but it’s all geared up to serve you a hot cup of latte, espresso, or cappuccino, thanks to its gas-powered espresso machine and pedal-driven burr grinder.

It was designed by Royal College of Art graduates Amos Field Reid and Lasse Oiva, and has been honored with a design award from the Deutsche Bank and has placed second in a competition hosted by prestigious Italian design house Pininfarina.

Since Velopresso is still on its prototype stages, you might have to wait a while for your cup of Joe. Its makers expect to start taking pre-orders for the production version in early Summer 2013.
