Concrete Espresso Maker Cements Your Love for Caffeine

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 29, 2010

I don’t like coffee much. I like the way it smells sometimes, but I hate the way it tastes. The only way I can imagine coffee being even grosser is if it was brewed with a concrete filter.

This new Lavazza concept espresso machine has surfaced with a body made out of two pieces of molded concrete. The thing looks very industrial and would probably fit right in at Steve Jobs’ house.


The parts that actually make the espresso appear to be stainless steel. The water goes into a drawer for brewing. The only particularly unpleasant sounding part is that the coffee beans appear to go into a hopper that puts them right next to the concrete. Mmmm. Coffee and concrete.
