My two favorite coffee products come from a company called ROK Kitchen Tools. They produce a manual espresso maker and have just debuted a grinder. The novelty factor is huge with these two products. They are beautiful to look at, portable, and produce great results. Their videos are well done to highlight the products and show how to use them. I have moved internationally, and the only product I took from my kitchen was the ROK espresso maker. For the coffee connoisseur, they are a must have. http://www.rokkitchentools.com/
