Fiat 500L - Small People Mover, Espresso Included
Leave it up to the Italians, mixing life on the road with an espresso maker. The new Fiat 500L will be equipped with a new on board espresso machine that includes a small spoon holder. The espresso machine was designed by Lavazza, and while I am sure it makes a road-worthy shot of espresso, one has to wonder if that's going to work while driving.
The machine has to work on ESE Pods; can you imagine trying to tamp and then extract? Even still, I think a good round at home or a travel mug might just work well too. But if you need the novelty, or have a really long commute through traffic, you can try this option out (if you buy this car in europe - it's not planed for the States), or you can check out the HandPresso Auto - the first Espresso maker for a car that I've seen.

First the HandPresso Auto and now this? What is it with Europeans and their need for automotive espresso makers?
Wonder how many crashes will occur because some dolt tried pulling a shot while doing 60-70mph on a highway?
I can see how it would be a handy item to have while camping, etc. but you just KNOW someone's going to cause an accident with one on a motorway eventually.
