By Simon HunterThe world’s most powerful espresso machine has arrived in the US.
The Tiktok Coffee Roaster 1.5 is powered by a turbocharged, high-performance turbofan engine that produces up to 925bhp and 6,000lb-ft of torque.
Its top speed is 1,200mph.
It will be the world’s first machine to have a turbocharger, and will have a maximum speed of up to 2,000mph, according to the company.
Its creators, Tiki Coffee Roasters, are aiming to become a global technology leader in the coffee industry.
Its first test is set to take place in Washington DC later this year.
Its owner, American Tony Rios, says it is the fastest machine he has ever made.
The company was founded by the former CEO of Teavana Inc, and is based in California.
Tiki Coffee has been making espresso machines since the 1980s, with the Tiktoks being the first to go into production in the United States.
It has been selling them at the Teavanas shop in Los Angeles since 2012.
Tiktoks were originally sold in Europe, but Tiki sold them to the US in 2012.
The machine’s makers are aiming for a high sales figure in the world, with sales of $100m in the first six months of this year, according a company statement.
It is the first machine designed specifically for coffee, and the company hopes to have 20 Tiktos ready by the end of the year.
