It goes without saying that cycling and coffee goes hand in hand, and when the festive season rolls around, a luxury coffee subscription or insulated travel mug often awaits the keen pedaller under the tree. However, for those struggling to buy something for the cyclist who truly has everything, and nothing in our guide to the best Christmas gifts for cyclists will suffice, Rapha may have the answer. You just need a mere £2,735 to hand, and a lot of love for your giftee. 

Rapha Cycling Club members will have exclusive access to the limited edition R Cinquanotto (R58) espresso machine, produced by Milanese manufacturer Rocket Espresso. Only 100 models will be made, and they carry with them a four-figure price tag.
