Looks like a Jura Superauto to me but I think Mark Prince will probably know for sure. can't he just grind, tamp, extract and steam milk with that uber-cool glove thingy? Why the espresso machine?

Ooops, looks like I missed that one!

Took a tour of the Iron Man set a year ago just after the Long Beach SCAA. Got to see all of his cars and garage.

Jura Capresso Z5. The Z6 is shiny. Tony Stark likes a little $3400 convenience. Ironically, the Z5's greatest claim to fame is that your lazy ass doesn't have to move the capp cup 2 inches between the froth tube and espresso tube outputs like on other super autos. Both froth and espresso come out the same pipes area. For that (and a dial control) you pay a $400-$900 premium over other similar super autos.

That's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. It brought a tear to my eye, and then it brought a tear to my other eye when I realized that it'll never be. Kind of like when I wake up from a flying dream.
