Alfonso / espresso machine


Alfonso brings conscious consumption back into the stressful everyday home office life. Away from the quick coffee to go at the push of a button to the celebrated production moment for every would-be barista. Learning how to deal with the Alfonso correctly may take time, and rightly so. Because enjoying a coffee should not be a minor habit, but a conscious engagement with the topic and its origin.
By varying brewing temperature, screen printing and other variables, the consumer has the opportunity to prepare his personal perfect espresso. Alfonso isn`t your casual espresso machine with a fixed result, but a barista kitchen for your home.
