Car Coffee MachineYou don't need the budget of Ferrari or Red Bull Racing to bring Formula One scorching into your kitchen or office.

The V8 and V12 half-scale engine replica coffee machines are the creation of Espresso Veloce, built to order and costing between £8,699 and £8,999.

They feature more than 90 machined components, manufactured using solid billets of aerospace alloys, similar to those used in contemporary Grand Prix engines. The complete coffee machine weighs about 23kg. The exhaust pipes, which dispense your coffee of choice, are fashioned from aviation-grade titanium alloy and handcrafted using tungsten and argon welding techniques. You can even specify espresso cups that look like racing pistons or the air intake trumpets of a competition engine.

Like a real internal combustion engine, every component conforms to tolerances within a tenth of a millimetre. The cam covers and other prominent components then undergo a chemical anodising process to release colour into the alloy. Parts such as the engine’s intake venturis are hand-polished to create a high lustre finish.

Car Coffee Machine 2The attention to detail also includes heating the tips of the exhaust pipes to create the blue lustre that appears on real engines after full-speed running.

Each Espresso Veloce is hand-assembled in South Africa, where it was designed.

Once the engine casing is assembled an internal tank is coupled to a high pressure, vibrating pump. This pump feeds an inline heat exchanger passing the boiling water through an array of pipes into the capsule-type group head. Volumetric control by a programmable electronic control unit then delivers the perfect espresso at an optimal 22 bar pressure.

Each machine comes with a numbered plaque and a certificate of autenticity signed by its creator. Unlike an F1 engine it's easy to use, according to the manufacturer - just add Nespresso capsules.

Coffee Heart 1
Coffee seems to offer a mysterious benefit to heart health – one that doctors have been at pains to explain.

Now, a small, new study from Japan suggests that the caffeine in a cup of coffee might help your small blood vessels work better, which could ease strain on the heart.

A cup of caffeinated coffee caused a 30% increase in blood flow through the small vessels of people's fingertips, compared with a cup of decaf, according to the research, which is scheduled for presentation Wednesday at the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Dallas.

These micro-vessels regulate the ease with which blood flows through the circulatory system and the body's tissues, said lead researcher Dr Masato Tsutsui, a cardiologist and professor in the pharmacology department at the University of the Ryukyus, in Okinawa.

Previous studies have shown an association between coffee drinking and lower risk of heart attack, heart disease and stroke, said Dr Gordon Tomaselli, chief of cardiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Researchers found that high doses of caffeine may improve the function of larger arteries.

But scientists have not been able to figure out why this is, given that coffee also can increase blood pressure. High blood pressure can damage arteries.

"This is an intriguing observation that may help us understand why consumption of coffee may be beneficial," said Tomaselli, former president of the American Heart Association.

Finger blood flow

The study involved 27 healthy adults, aged 22 to 30, who did not regularly drink coffee. They were asked to drink a 5-ounce cup of either caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee. Researchers then measured their finger blood flow using a non-invasive laser technique for gauging blood circulation.

Two days later, the experiment was repeated with the other type of coffee. Neither the researchers nor the participants knew when they were drinking caffeinated coffee.

The researchers found that blood flow in the small blood vessels improved by nearly one-third among the people who drank caffeinated coffee. The effect continued in those people over a 75-minute period.

Heart rate levels remained the same between the two groups, although caffeinated coffee slightly raised blood pressure.

The improved blood flow is likely because of improved function of the inner lining of the blood vessels, Tsutsui said. Researchers have linked the function of the lining of blood vessels – also known as endothelial function – to future heart attacks, heart disease and strokes.

Drinking Tea - LadyReducing harmful inflammation

By opening blood vessels and reducing harmful inflammation, caffeine may create favourable conditions for good heart health, he said.

But how much coffee is too much? Tsutsui pointed to a landmark U.S. National Institutes of Health study that showed that, overall, drinking six or more cups of coffee a day reduced men's risk of early death by 10% and women's risk by 15%.

That study, published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that risk of heart disease and stroke either remained low or went even lower as people drank more coffee during the day.

The new study was co-sponsored by the All Japan Coffee Association, which might raise some healthy scepticism were it not for the large body of evidence that already shows coffee's heart health benefits, Tomaselli said.

That said, the study's small sample size does not conclusively explain why coffee is so good for the heart. "I don't think this answers any questions for us," Tomaselli said.

Data and conclusions presented at meetings typically are considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.

Starbucks Train 3Apparently not content with putting a coffee shop on every second street corner, Starbucks has teamed with Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) to expand into rail travel with the unveiling of the first railway carriage converted into a Starbucks.

The double-decker car uses a design that combines design elements based on coffee with Swiss detailing in what Starbucks calls the smallest bar it has ever designed. With its ubiquitous green logo and “Starbucks” emblazoned on the side along with specially-designed icons showing menu items and a Fairtrade symbol, the Starbucks carriage isn't hard to pick out.

Inside, the coffee carriage is divided into two levels, both of which share a color scheme based on coffee-associated shades and tints. Since this is a mode of transportation rather than architecture, the challenge was to address concerns not only of comfort and commerce, but also space and safety. With its seating for a total of 50 people, the design focuses on serving passengers on short journeys.

Starbucks Train 1The lower, entry level features a curved wooden serving bar with a small pastry case. However, the espresso machine is a simpler, automated device compared to those found in a more stationary Starbucks. Along the windows there are standing bars and, according to Starbucks, the wood for these and throughout has been treated to conform to stringent safety requirements.

Upstairs, there’s a second coffee bar and a lounge area with movable club chairs covered in beige leather with detailed stitching, with a small lantern in each lounge window made to look like an upside-down Starbucks cup completing the look. Starbucks says that the seats are made from clip-together parts that can be quickly removed and replaced.

The knotty wooden “community” tables remind passengers that they’re on a train by sporting a groove in the middle to hold drinks in place while going around corners or changing speeds. In each table is a specially designed dial designed to resemble a Swiss watch dial. These are numbered to help the staff in delivering drinks when passengers order from their tables.

Starbucks Train 2“It was an incredible and rewarding challenge to design our first ever Starbucks store on a train," says Liz Muller, director of concept design for Starbucks. "We had to combine functionality and beautiful design, whilst taking into account a variety of factors such as constant movement of the train, space limitation and stringent safety regulations. This is one of the smallest espresso bars and stores we have ever designed and is a result of a unique collaboration of experts, including local designers and engineers from SBB. Working closely together with SBB over the past two years, makes me very proud that we can now truly bring the Starbucks Experience to life on this train.”

The morning smell of coffee may get you going and sometimes you even drink it at night to help you relax. There are different kinds of coffee drinkers. Which one are you?

old school coffee1.       Someone Who Hates Starbucks

You shun Starbucks like it's the plague. It's either it's too commercialized and has put a local café nearby out of business or the place is too crowded. In some countries, a grande at Starbucks costs too much so maybe it's the price.  Whatever your reasons are, you go for locally grown coffee and probably don't know all Starbucks flavors by heart.

2.       Black, No Sugar

You're proud that you don't put milk in your coffee and no sugar either. According to Thrillist, there's no manlier way of drinking coffee than black, no sugar. Or it could also be because you're diabetic and just need the caffeine.

3.       Café Chick Studying / Working While Nursing A Cup Of Coffee

Coffee BrainDrinking coffee stops the decline in memory performance that happens as the day progresses.
Memory in older adults is at its best during the morning hours compared to late afternoon. To get round this you could, of course, try to schedule mental tasks for first thing, leaving more routine work for later in the day. Or you could try making a pot of coffee. For researchers at the University of Arizona have found that coffee can even out memory performance during the day.

They had 40 participants aged over 65 do a verbal learning test at 8am and again at 4pm. One group received a 12 ounce cup of regular coffee during the tests, while the other got the decaffeinated kind. The participants were unable to tell the difference between the two. Those drinking decaff had the usual decline in performance during the day, but those ingesting caffeine did not – they were as sharp in the afternoon as in the morning. The next step, say the researchers, is to repeat these experiments with brain scanning, to find out what effect caffeine really has on brain function and blood flow.
