Like many Americans, I am a coffee lover. I’m a regular at a local coffee shop, so much so that I don’t even have to order. The baristas see me walk through the door and they start making my drink. I always have my drink in my hand before I’ve even paid for it.

This is a great thing for my taste buds, but a terrible thing for my wallet. I suppose there are worse addictions I could have. I mean nobody ever got a DUI for drinking four espressos and driving, and nobody has been cited for an open container while walking downtown with a latte in their hand.

I recently saw a video for a product that is any coffee lover’s dream. It’s called the Top Brewer. This magical machine works with your iphone or ipad to make you the best cup of home brewed espresso, cappuccino or macchiato you’ve ever had with just the touch of a button.

This dream machine is pretty amazing and can be built right into your kitchen or office. The only thing that worries me is that I can’t seem to find out how much this baby costs. It makes me think that the only way I’ll be able to own one is right after I win the lottery.
