I have been looking into the new Meticulous Espresso and the Milk too. Has anyone seen this in action? It looks really cool and with the ability to make so many adjustments. I am very curious about this machine and the quality of espresso it can make and it may suit my needs very well.

Carlos from Meticulous disclosed on IG a couple days ago that he is being sued by Duval for patent infringement. Haven't seen anything about it here. Apparently they are doing the same to Decent. It is so hard to bring a new idea to market.

Since I don't want to spend my evenings refereeing a hot button topic that's more about IP law than espresso, I'm closing this topic.

Anyone adding or removing the milk after the October update? It looks pretty nifty, I'm excited to be nearing production time if all goes well with their machining trip to China

I'm at the Taipei coffee show 11/18/23 and stopped by the booth. Didn't stay long enough for a demo, but all of you who ordered are in for a very nice surprise; if it's the same one on display. And a built in scale along with everything else!

Went back and filmed a demo with the VP 11/19/23, checked the camera and came out ok; will upload in a few days. Asked about delivery, he said after Chinese New Year, not before; VIP backers getting first machines.

Interesting to see how some compagnies spend more time on building patents than machines.... Duvall seems still to be whishware after few years while Meticulous had time to bring idea to marker in less time...

See post #373 or any reasonable discussions on the rights of patent holders on other, appropriate forums.

I cancelled my pre order on this a while ago, so I've been out of the loop with the updates. Does anyone know if they're still on target with their December release goal? I haven't seen or heard any chatter besides them getting sued.

You can go their Kickstarter page and read the updates that they themselved have posted.

... but to save you the effort this time: They are nowhere near production, and have announced that they are not giving new dates.

Last I read they were talking about March, but perhaps later....I suspect that this is also wishful thinking.

By cancelling you may pay a little more, but you can also see what real customers think and pick up the many used ones that I think might well appear for sale shortly after. Some people, for sure, will find the workflow and limitations don't suit them at all. After watching one and asking questions at Host Milan in October, I realised that the machine will likely appeal only to a certain type of user and usage. Watch the video and think about how it would suit your situation.
