Platform 14


‘Velopresso’ is a celebratory fusion of human power, sensory pleasure and technology – old tech with hi-tech, bicycles and coffee, their engineering and aesthetics. The result is an innovative, pedal-powered, mobile coffee-making machine for off-grid selling of quality espresso and its derivatives, with a compact footprint and near-silent, ultra-low carbon human- powered operation – fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise.


‘Velopresso’ is a joint project with Lasse Oiva.
