For those who enjoy a quick coffee while traveling in space, the ISSpresso capsule machine can whip up the perfect brew. While only a select few will really be able to enjoy the machine's abilities, it's still amazing to think about the effort that went into the item's creation, and all for a small cup of java!

The coffee machine can make a small cup of espresso, and for those in space who need a quick caffeine kick, this could certainly come in handy. Moreover, the design is "capable of handling liquids at high pressure and high temperatures [and] the plastic tube carrying the water inside a normal espresso machine has been replaced with a special steel tube designed to withstand pressure of more than 400 bar," as stated on DesignBoom.
