Alien technology coffee machine

By: on July 18, 2005

We are trialling a new coffee machine. The old one is a percolator with two hotplates. The new one is hermetically sealed, has a fascia that coordinates well with hi-fi componentry, and makes variations on espresso that I haven’t heard of with a single button press.

There is a certain satisfaction in the fantasy that one is ‘making’ coffee by replacing the filter and grinds in the percolator; however, the inescapable truth is that this machine straight from Area 51 makes better coffee, even if we can’t see how it is doing it.
