A lot of my friends tend to keep an eye out for things relating to the coffee cart and I originally found this fantastic contraption through such a friend who presented the velopresso “with a lot of excitement i might add” in a newspaper article. Also featured on “The Cool hunter” the Velopresso is a human powered coffee cart, so there no need for electricity as their website describes:

“Velopresso is a celebratory fusion of human
power, sensory pleasures and technology
— old tech with hi-tech, bicycles and coffee,
their engineering and aesthetics.
The result is an innovative pedal-powered
mobile coffee-making machine for off-grid
selling of quality espresso and its derivatives
with a compact footprint and near silent
ultra-low carbon human-powered operation —
fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise.” – Velopresso website

It did cross my mind also that if you found a fitness fanatic and general gym goer, I reckon you could get them to pay you for the workout opportunity too, just a thought. What I think is a great idea though is that the designers are also working on a way to generate their own fuel by repurposing the used coffee grounds. Saving the planet one coffee at a time…
