An Espresso Machine Fit For An Alien King

Shaped like a space ship and more expensive than a new Mustang, the La Marzocco Mistral Commercial Espresso Machine may be built to handle the hustle and bustle behind the scenes in a crowded coffee shop, but it's just itching to strut its sexiness on your countertop, so long as you're willing to pony up the $20,000+ price tag.

Sporting two boilers and steam wands, you'll never again fight over who gets to make their morning latte first. With the ability to brew between 50 to 100 shots per hour, it should be able to keep up with the most cripplingly caffeine-addicted households with little issue. Only hitch? You won't be ready to whip up beverages right out of the box — this thing requires special plumbing set ups and a direct water line.
