Newton Minimalist Espresso Maker

You’d be forgiven for thinking that there is a whole lot that goes into making an espresso. Just about every cafe out there proudly features a big, expensive machine that menaces with its convoluted levers and wands. But really, all espresso consists of is near-boiling water forced through finely ground coffee beans and filtered through a metallic mesh screen. That’s it. And that’s all the Newton Espresso Maker is built to do.

This simple machine is a love poem written about espresso. It is sparse, finely crafted, and effective. The hand-built contraption features a wooden base, anodized components, and a simple aluminum piston that pushes hot water through a cylinder and removable stainless-steel coffee basket. Unlike your Aerobe Aeropress, this contraption can sit cleanly on your countertop or wall (it can be mounted by the back) and produce 8-10 Bar pressure. The product is slated to hit Kickstarter this October.
