Sometimes you want that extra jolt of caffeine in your system that only an espresso can fulfill -- enter the il Tiro. This handy gun-like espresso machine essentially shoots a shot of espresso into either an empty cup or even a latte or cappuccino to really give it a punch.

The il Tiro pretty much works like a traditional espresso machine, but in a more convenient and portable way. The water goes into the gun's handle and coffee is prepared in one of the pistol's chambers. The grinding of beans is handled by a dock which houses il Tiro. You get about three shots out of it before you have to reload.

The il Tiro was designed by Stefan Riegebauer, Christina Carli, Florian Kainz and Niko Schwarz. Stats for Espresso-Making Guns Trending: Older & Warm
