Fresh tortillas made with masa can be one of the tastiest things ever. Probably because one has to also appreciate the difficulty and time put into each piece. So when Flatev introduced their new instant tortilla making machine, naturally our heads turned.
Similar to the K-cup machines that make instant coffee, Flavtev incorporates a tortilla pod (which you could probably buy in bulk). Flavtev’s website says that they offer three different types of dough made with natural ingredients: flour, corn and blue corn. The machine opens up the pod, presses the dough and cooks it. Less than a minute later, instant tortilla.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Flatev machine won’t be available until sometime in 2015, but if you want to pre-order ahead of time they’re taking names. So until we see and taste them for ourselves, we’ll stick to homemade. We don’t mind waiting a few extra minutes.
