Coffee has become an indispensable part of modern culture. And while there happen to be many locations dispensing the beverage in all its incarnations, when the need for a refill hits, time is of the essence. Sure, there are coffee locations that feature drive-through caffeinating, but when it comes down to it, the nearest coffee purveyor could be too far away. While that may be hard to believe in this day and age, there is an even quicker way to fuel up.

The Trisa Electronics Coffee To Go is a battery-operated espresso machine that even includes a carrying case. Designed for travel, camping or everyday walking around, the portable espresso maker can deliver up to 16 cups per battery charge. If you don't happen to have a coffee grinder on you, the machine takes ESE pods for almost instant coffee gratification.

Available for the European market, the price for convenience does not come cheap. (The price converts to over $500 USD.) However, as all of us coffee-drinkers know, it's hard to put a price on the comfort of knowing where the next cup of joe will come from. Knowing this, the company ships the espresso machine with a 12-volt cable that plugs into the car accessory socket. So while it may not plug into the wall here, it can at least go with you to get you going.
