If all I get after following the link is the same photo and the same paragraph, with no link to anything more substantive, it's not a STORY, it's just fluff. Thought better of you.

Yeah me too. That's just about disgusting.

whoa, 44 lbs! That's one heavy coffee maker, especially for space.

Generating sufficient pressure and maintaining perfect high-temperature seals in a low gravity environment takes a lot of quality hydraulic equipment.
