Braun Aromaster KF 20: A Coffee Maker Only an Astronaut Could Have Truly AppreciatedS

Even if it brewed the worst cup of coffee known to man, I would still drink whatever the Braun Aromaster KF 20 dripped into my cup because I'd be so hypnotized by its beauty.

Designed in 1972 by Florian Seiffert, the KF 20 has an unconventional form factor, but doesn't lose the clean, simple lines that make it so approachable. And not only does the yellow model look like a lego minifig head, but the KF 20 also made a cameo appearance in Alien, according to Wary Meyers. And they're not abundant either: for example, there's currently a single unit up for auction on eBay, and the opening bid is $311. [Wary Meyers, You Might Find Yourself]
