I'm not sure if I'll be a tiny minority (or not) but......

That looks FUGLY... like a tacky 1970's view of "futuristic"  

and as to 8K :-O 

Having just seen Missy's quote - I am obviously not entirely alone!

I guess its like marmite. I happen to love the design. But what a hideous price! If you make something new and amazing surely you want as many people to use it as possible.

In terms of functionality I believe it has a valve which allows you to control the release of the pressure from the spring. Manually profiling via a dial basically.

While no one has one, has anyone tasted the results at a coffee festival?

That is frankly hideous. It looks like a weird syringe interbred with a microscope. It's also got a rather "masculine" Look emoji1787.png.

Ignoring the looks, what does it do?

It makes someone who is not able to achieve an elevation of espresso to "manumental" heights, capable of impressing their friends.

8K, too rich for my blood and I'll take the purple triangular pill instead.

 

I saw one in the flesh at Host 2019 and it was rather large....

This has been mentioned in a few threads when it was presented earlier this year but they've finally announced the price (8k EUR) and released press photos (sick). Selling in the DACH region of Europe now.

Lovely machine.

8K + Swedish VAT so you end up with 10K plus shipping. Ain't cheap. But I think it looks cool.

For me the shocking bit was the sheer size, 3ft tall. Fair enough that if you're prepared to pay the price then chances are you can afford a large kitchen so don't have to worry about counter-top space without wall-mounted cupboards, but  it's going to be very imposing just by size, and the styling is the going to be more crucial.

It’s massively over priced and it’s features list is confusing , lever style and flow profiling , did anyone ask for that ?

how does it keep the group warm ? 
54 mom pf so you can’t use competition baskets with a 8k machine 

It’s a boutique machine but who for , that price for a new machine new to market, new company  , you gotta have some cash burning a while in your pocket to take a punt 

but it Swiss made so

So are Swiss army knives but you can't pull an espresso on one unless there's a variant I've missed.

So it’s ten times the price of your average cuckoo clock
