Some people would call a Swarovski-crystal covered coffee machine stupid. Because it is. However, if I was the kind of guy who blew my nose on 50 pound notes, I’d probably buy a Nespresso Crystal coffee machine.
What they’ve done is taken a perfectly good £160 coffee machine and added 3,100 original Swarovski-crystals. How much do think it’s worth now? Go on, have a guess.
£1,995! Ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous.
If you do have that kind of wonga kicking about your kitchen floor and you fancy a coffee, it may please you to know it’s actually a really good coffee machine. Not £1,995 good. I mean, that’d have to be some seriously gourmet shit, but the Nespresso Le Cube, upon which this blinged-up silliness is based, is a quality piece of kit.
Somehow it seems to have lost all of its austere splendour though. Can’t imagine how?
