Black (coffee) Friday
I’m a touch embarrased to add to the hype of the coming shopping insanity, but if I could convince you to drop a couple grand on one extravagant item this year (that isn’t a bike), this would be it. Those incredibly stylish individuals over at Rapha offer this exceptionally beautiful espresso machine by Giotto. They would probably do well to convince you that espresso pulled from this beaut will up your wattage exponentially and guarantee you a podium finish, but truth in advertising restricts them to only list the machine specifications. Sorry.
The Rocket may not be “just released”, but with a limited edition run of 200 (stamped to the boilerplate) it’s certainly a rare gift that will leave the recipient’s jaw hanging to the floor in awe of it’s beauty and anticipation of the crema topped caffiene that comes drizzling out. I can’t imagine a better way to begin a cold morning bike commute through the city center than a hot dose of liquid nap coming from this sexy thing. The post ride celebration would be equally as sweet.
P.S. If you were thinking of surprising the Urban Velo staff with a gift this year… well… I’ve got an idea for you.
