Jura Capresso Impressa J5

Sixty seconds. That's how long it takes you to roll over and go back to sleep—or, with the push of a button on the Jura-Capresso Impressa J5, brew up a perfect cup of espresso to get you into your gear closet and out the door. Before you've even registered what day it is, the fully automated J5 purifies and heats the water, grinds and loads the beans, and pulls a café-caliber double shot with an extra-thick layer of crema. While you're sipping and stretching, it dumps the grounds and cleans itself for tomorrow. And since you skipped the 16-ounce coffee-shop grande in favor of just three ounces of pure espresso buzz, you can also count on fewer pit stops to slow you down. $2,000; capresso.com
