Velopresso is a mobile coffee machine that uses pedal power to both move and grind beans, leaving a minimal carbon footprint on the planet. Currently a prototype, this java maker on wheels was created by Royal College of Art students Amos Field Reid and Lasse Oiva. From espresso to lattes, the motor-less and silent machine is a combination of bicycle and coffee maker, using clean green energy to whip up a fine cup of joe.
Recognized for its ingenious concept, the Velopresso won the 2012 Deutsche Bank Award for Design and came in second place at the 2012 Pinifarina Design Contest. [Source: Velopresso]
