Espresso to go, please!
THE best news to lift my spirits last week was from Fiat. The 500L (a Mini Countryman-style vehicle), which was launched to the media last week in Turin and goes on sale in Ireland at the end of the year priced in the early €20k range, is the first production car in the world available with a fully integrated espresso coffee machine as an accessory.
Designed in co-operation with Italian coffee-machine producer Lavazza and using the company's "A Modo Mio" pod system, the espresso maker integrates into the passenger compartment, with accessories including a spoon holder, pod dispenser and sugar container. -- CS
