True Espresso Anywhere
If you can supply fresh ground coffee, hot water, and a little strength to provide pressure, you can make cafe quality espresso at home, in the office, or anywhere you like with the Cafelat Robot. Though its appearance might seem unconventional, the Robot is straightforward to use and provides you with all of the control you could expect from a manual espresso maker. Additionally, the Robot allows for experimentation over your brew ratios, temperatures, pressure profiles, and pre-infusion for dialing in your favorite recipes.
It’s easy to focus on the practical design and exceptional espresso that you get from the Robot, but it’d be a disservice to this little espresso maker to not mention its delightful design. Named for its appearance and seemingly pulled from a classic black and white science fiction movie, this little machine comes in colors to match that aesthetic perfectly. Choose from four different colors, including fire truck red, powder blue, matte black, and a satisfyingly retro green.
Cafelat put serious care into selecting the materials and planning the construction of the Robot. The body and base are die-cast aluminum with a robust feel, while the other metal parts—the portafilter, basket, dispersion screen, and brewing arms—are all stainless steel. The gaskets on both the piston and portafilter spouts are FDA approved silicone, and you’ll find no plastic anywhere in this machine. Every Robot is hand built and tested before it leaves the factory, and thanks to the simplicity of its construction you should have no problem with maintenance should the need ever arise.
