I like the way the steam arm heats your worktop, ?

It looks great, curious as to why its  at an angle

To match your Monolith ?

been thinking about this as well... with PF in a regular position me thinks its group is just well hidden and upright. If a piston directly affects flow into the group, it needs a very distictive upper end to ensure an even distribution of water and pressure.

In light of the above I can't help but thinking of lever action as a replacement for a conventional pump in an otherwise standard e61 pipework (+paddle control).

One thing springs to mind. How or where is the water being heated as it doesn't seem to have a conventional boiler space. 

Maybe a design similar to a Quickmill or Gaggia Classic? [emoji51]

 

Oooor... it is cold brew espresso! [emoji23]

It leans back to  accommodate the lever arm I suppose. The barista has to reach right over the cylinder as it is .. It'd be a pain if  it was all upright and it would be very high as well. Short people wouldn't buy them.

So it’s thermo-coil/block with potentially unheated group and some water flow valve?

I guess it produces coffee...


Possibly - but we could also have said almost the same thing about the Decent when that first appeared.

Will be interesting to see the detail - and it’d be great to see one parked next to a black Monolith to see how well they go together!

You can usually find me and all of my Gaggia products at Shades of Coffee

Agree... lets see how it pans out. Looks interesting . The steam wand position is a puzzle for sure. 

Coffee tech will move on, and perhaps we need to find ways of making coffee machines that don't require litres of water to run.

Yeah - precisely controlled just-in-time water heating has to be the way forward, eg thermoblock.

For example can’t see how mid-shot temp changes could be done otherwise - if u wanted that sort of thing
