No doubt you’re all as excited about the Slayer coffee machine as I am. You’ll be happy to know the following details:
“Seattle’s newest espresso machine, the Slayer, will start shipping in the next month from its new factory in the old Sicks Rainier Brewing bottling building in Georgetown to coffeehouse customers in San Francisco, Michigan, Canada and Australia.”
“It’s also a beauty with Art Deco-looking groups (those are the nozzles from which the espresso pours) fitted with Peruvian walnut handles or “paddles” that let the barista control brewing pressure. Cost: $14,000 for two groups; $18,000 for three.”
So, get saving.
I’m harnessing the power of Twitter to find out if there’ll ever be a one group version. Will keep you posted.
