This Is The Flatev, And It’s Like A Keurig Machine For Tortillas

flatev

You need tortillas and you need them right damn now! Well, lucky for you, there are plenty of companies looking to nurture our instant pod-based lifestyle… Enter the Flatev.

Your new favorite instant tortilla maker follows in the footsteps of pod-based machines such as Keurig and Nespresso. However, where these machines could only deliver instant coffee, espresso, and soup, the Flatev churns out fresh tortillas.

Simply insert a dough-filled pod, hit a button, and a flat piping-hot tortilla is delivered instantly, eager to hold all of your Mexican fare. The Flatev is available for pre-order here.

So, are the tortillas any good? We’re not sure. But they’ll probably pair well with the puddle water from your Keurig.

Starbucks Barista Illustrates Customer Names On Coffee Cups, Spells Them Correctly

coffee-cup-art

For the few times that Starbucks actually asks for your name to write on the cup, an embarrassing misspelling of your name is imminent.

London-based Starbucks barista, Gabriel Lafitte Nkweti, not only makes sure to spell your name correctly, but turns the names of his coffee customers into works of art.

The art is obviously not done while your latte is being made… Starbucks isn’t that slow. Nkweti takes in upwards of 40 hours to complete one piece of cup art — drawing inspiration from his patrons and various art forms. See more of his collection at his Facebook page.

Black coffee and Oreos… They’re not just for breakfast anymore. Malaysia-based artist Yeirkif Abdullah, having apparently lost his circle template, uses mugs of black coffee and Oreos to complete fun black and white illustrations.

Need Mickey ears? Done. Wall-E’s eyes? Oreos to the rescue. Have fun at breakfast, or at any meal that needs orbs in a hurry.
