Strietman ES3 Espresso Machine
There’s a uniquely satisfying feeling one gets when pulling a lever. Maybe it’s all those Adam West Batman shows we watched, but when we flip a big switch, we instantly feel like a super villain who just set his diabolical and unnecessarily elaborate plan into motion.
Strietman’s Es3 Espresso Machine scratches that itch with its nifty lever technique, one first developed in the 50s in Italy but rarely seen today. This method results in hot water getting manually pressed through the coffee by means of a piston, resulting in a tangible feeling of accomplishment, some damn fine espresso, and a low-maintenance machine. The whole package comes with three filter baskets and a double spout for 2 cups, a custom tamper, and an anti-dust lid. [Purchase]
