We know that single serve coffee has changed our lives, but has it changed it enough to make us a feel motivated to become an astronaut or scientist? According to Astronaut Leroy Chiao a coffee maker was just the thing that got him through school, and changed his life putting him on the track for space.

I had a few machines before, but the game changer was a Salton Three-for-All, that I acquired back in 1984. In addition to regular coffee, it could also brew espresso, and given a little talent for controlling the limited amount of steam it generated, one could also make a cappuccino of sorts. This machine served my roommates and me well during my graduate student days.
