What the Helen of Thomas is This?

January 14th, 2011

My father brought this dusty old machine out of storage last night and I would be impressive if anyone could guess what it is.

Three vague hints: it’s from the 1970s, has instructions written up on a typewriter by the former owners and requires no electricity.

Answer coming soon…

    My guess is some sort of espresso maker…

    It’s an atomic expresso machine. I picked up one in a similar color complete with a bowl and coffee holder. Amazing machine.
