Looks like miso soup has edged out espresso as the preferred office pick-me-up — at least in Japan, where miso soup maker Marukome has introduced a machine that turns packets of prepackaged miso soup into individualized bowls of the salty, delicious heaven. The machine (marketed as the "Wan Shot" to play off of both the English idiom and the Japanese word for soup bowl) is targeted towards small restaurants or professional offices that consume between fifty to a hundred bowls of miso soup a day, so it's a wise investment for any office looking to up their employee satisfaction. The Wan Shot comes with a default miso soup flavor but offers up to eight other varieties that can be purchased separately.
