NO WORKSITE COFFEE IF YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA

The considerate folk at Makita Japan have decided Aussies and the rest of the world doesn't need its latest CM501D Li-ion powered Coffee Maker.

The same batteries that keep tradies' tools in business power the CM501D for fresh brew all day long.

Makita says one charge is good for 5.3 cups of coffee, made from Makita's coffee pods. It will also 'brew' instant coffee.

Weighing in at 1.5kgs it uses Makita 18V Li-ion battery packs, and along with the charger, they're sold separately. In Japanese Yen, the CM501D will cost the equivalent of AUD $145.

GadgetNET says: Japan is renowned for its tea, rather than coffee. In recent times though, a booming specialty coffee scene is emerging.

PortaPresso

For us though, we'd rather put our money on this one from our friends across the ditch - and we have. The PortaPresso is "the first truly portable espresso coffee maker that grinds beans, boils water and froths milk".
