Exhibit A: Random bruises.

Exhibit B: Typo-ridden emails.

Exhibit C: Mismatched socks.

The evidence is all there, and our secret is out: We are completely unable to function without our first cup of coffee in the morning.

And more and more, our dowdy percolator just won't do. Not only is the brew too mild to get our neurons firing, but the old-school drip pot design leaves us cold and unstimulated.

Enter the Presso.
This vaguely avian beauty pulls a perfect shot of espresso using only coffee grounds, hot water, and a little elbow grease. Simply pour in the grounds, add hot (not boiling!) water, and press down on the ergonomic aluminum levers. Voila - instant concentration!

At $150, the Presso is an economic alternative to conventional espresso machines, and comes with the eco-friendly bonus of being electricity-free and made of recyclable materials.

Still not convinced? The kind folks at Presso throw in a milk frothing attachment, as well as a bifurcated spout that enables you to make two shots at a time.

So go ahead - retire your percolator and replace it with something prettier, more useful. Your boss can thank us later.
