Wouter Strietman

Hand-made espresso

Department: Man and Leisure


Every coffee lover knows that making the perfect espresso requires a delicate touch. The only thing is, current espresso machines offer disappointingly little room for a personal touch: simply press the button and the machine decides what you get. Wouter Strietman has gone back to basics and designed a machine that allows the user to see and feel what he is doing. When the water comes close to boiling, you can hand-press it through the coffee by pulling a handle. You are the one who sets the grind, strength, temperature and pressure. With the ES1 — the first ever EspressoStrietman machine — you can have your coffee exactly the way you want it.
