Trust us, we are perfectly accustomed to drinking coffee that looks like it could have dripped from a Formula One motor. The Italian-made Espresso Veloce Nero Carbonio 380 Espresso Machine is a limited-edition piece of functional “engine art” designed to pour the piping-hot lifeblood of creativity and wise wakeful decisions right from a facsimile of a V8, V10 or V12 engine block. That is like serving up our steamy morning beverage with a supercharged shot of extra manliness that has us growing hair in awkward places by lunchtime.
This is what happens when visionary designer and multi-disciplined mechanical engineer Paolo Mastrogiuseppe taps into his Italian heritage to individually craft functional mechanical sculptures like no other. The world gets a limited-edition series of devices that incorporate strictly high-tech materials with superb engineering and unmatched craftsmanship.
From its body’s anticorodal stainless steel and titanium alloy jet-black carbon fiber cam covers and base plate, every handcrafted collectible work of art is manufactured from the unparalleled durability and handsome presence of aircraft-grade materials. This intimidating capsule-type espresso maker with grappa dispenser is destined to leave your pansy Keurig weeping in the corner. This thing even scares us a little, like it can smell our inferior masculinity.
