Because the interwebs are crammed full of crazy things, and sometimes the purpose of those things is not immediately discernible, we present WTF Is It?
WTF is it?
The Aviatore Veloce Turbojet 100, a brewing system for tea leaves or coffee grinds.
What's it do?
Made from aviation-grade aluminium alloy, stainless steel and aluminium bronze, the 60-pound machine uses high-pressure brewing to produce a single cup of coffee or tea at a time.
Who makes it?
High-end Italian design firm Superveloce, a company that prides itself on crafting “beautiful yet functional mechanical art devices” that can be “passed on from generation to generation.”
Is it in any way useful?
If you’re interested in having the Boeing 747 of Keurigs in your kitchen, then yes, yes it is.
Is it in any way practical?
Surely you jest.
Would it actually fit in my kitchen?
Assuming you don’t have any other unnecessarily gigantic appliances, the 30” by 13” by 17” device should fit.
Can I buy one?
Superveloce doesn’t list a price for the model, but it does say the Turbojet will be limited to 100 units and notes interested parties in the U.S. should contact this Florida custom car shop.
Should I buy one?
Maybe, but before you do, take a look at the V12 espresso maker Superveloce also produces.
Mamma mia! What else do they make?
Take a gander …
