A Car that Makes Coffee? How cool is that?

There is no question that feeding a Starbucks addiction can be costly and time consuming. Do you try to ignore the fact that you spend $5 a day at Starbucks? Do you leave your house early just so you can stop at Starbucks on the way to work? Yeah, me too.

Fiat (the auto manufacturer) has solved our problem. In Italy, starting this October, you’ll be able to purchase a Fiat that comes equipped with its very own espresso machine. How’s that for the ultimate in convenience? Purchase one, and your car will make your coffee for you while you drive to work. Isn’t that something?

Of course, Fiats aren’t cheap, and it is just possible that your daily Starbucks run may prove less expensive than buying a new car. Would it be worth it to have a car that makes coffee for you? Personally, I’m happy if my car windows roll up and down and the AM radio works. Starbucks does not have to worry about losing my business anytime soon.
