This Machine is the K-Cup of Tortillas, Comes with Flour and Corn Tortilla Pods

KCup Tortillas

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.

Or, you know, pre-make more than you’ll need or buy a package of 20 for like $5.

At least they updated the design of the thing (on the website) because the unit in the video would look cool in the 70s, not 2014.

They would have to knock my socks off with pricing and quality (and varied) ingredients to make me even consider such a thing. Keurig machines make sense because most people make coffee everyday. Most people I know have tortillas a few times per month at most. I eat a ton of tortillas (half-hispanic girlfriend is a great cook, as my now fat a** can attest to) but I couldn’t justify the pricing for the unit, the pods, or the space necessary for such a niche gadget. But you never know, maybe the price comes down a lot and the taste is amazing…
