What do you get when you have a passion for cycling, sustainability and espresso’s? A bike powered espresso bar of course.
Former London Royal College of Art students Amos Field Reid and Lasse Oiva have designed and developed the 3 wheeled pedal powered coffee machine. Its uses a carbon belt drive system and is setup with a gear system that switches the power from the bike to the grinder, few seconds of pedalling and you’ve got a double shot right to go. The hot water is generated from an onboard gas powered boiler. In the words of Velopresso‘s creators, “fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise. Velopresso is a celebratory fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology”.
