Get the maquina mug.
slang Hispanic / Northern New Mexican term (?). Pronounced: a la ma-keen-a. Used similarly to an expletive or astounded type statement. Refers to the machine or the maker by use of the word maquina .

Said with some sense of amazement. When the pause between the words and / or the words are phrased in longer tonality it is as if there's a sense of total disbelief.*
