Photo of the Week

While most of my photos have been from film cameras or the odd one from my D300, I do own a digital point and shoot and feel it’s a great camera for certain situations.  The other day I was making an espresso when I saw this shot and felt the need to take it.  It’s a simple still life and even though it’s taken with a cheap camera, I like the look of the shot due to the slightly different perspective.

illy Y1 Espresso Machine

Here on Craft Collective we love coffee, and the only thing we might like even more than a coffee, is a coffee machine with a great design.  While I’d love to have the concrete machine we featured before, the new illy Y1 is certainly more compact, and likely less weight…  Great designs are always coming out of illy, it’s unfortunate that it’s a capsule machine as they do create a lot of waste.

Espresso Solo – Concrete Coffee Maker!

This concrete espresso machine named “Espresso Solo” was designed by Schmuel Linski, a student at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.  The machine is made from concrete as well as metal parts and can make a short or long espresso.  It’s a very simple design which works wonderfully with the concrete, very inspiring!
