If you're the kind of person who, like us, reaches for their phone every day and thinks ' Do you know what, I really wish that my iPhone could also pour coffee' then you will be thrilled to know that FINALLY someone in this cruel world has your back.

That's because, capitalizing on a gaping hole in the market, two daring young Italians have created an iPhone case that doubles up as an espresso machine.

No, really, they have.

Utilising the very best of phone/coffee science, the Mokase works by using an in-built battery to heat up a little cartridge of coffee to 60 degrees celsius in about eight seconds, before pouring out a 25ml espresso shot.

Apparently the pipe through which the espresso is pumped is made of an alloy aluminum-silicon that can handle hot liquids without releasing any toxins; while the whole process is initiated through a companion app on your phone.

You want to know more? Well, there's also this nifty little promo video that might just be the most Italian thing we've ever seen.

Currently little more than a Kickstarter pipe dream, the designers are seeking €75,000 (P4,073,494.10) in crowdfunding, with a planned retail price of €80 (P4,345.06).

Dream big, boys. Dream big.
