Amico solar coffee maker: the best things come to those who wait

Comments (46)


This dual-purpose cactus/coffee maker is not for those who want their caffeine fix right now, but it is thoroughly eco-friendly, needs no electricity and relies on sunlight to do its work. Leave the 'plant' in a bright spot, and the sun will gently warm your brew, up to 22 times a day -- and that's quite a few more times than even the most hardened caffeine freaks will tolerate! Once the water is boiled, you can also use the device to keep your drink warm at your desk.

The Amico is still in prototype stage, but I'd certainly like one of these keeping the poor, abandoned mugs on my desk warm this winter! [Via Ecofriend]
