New spring lever from Switzerland.
Would like to get more info on this machine. It was on the WOC in Berlin.

How very leading edge! It would pair nicely with a Monolith.

Yes, it's pretty sweet. Apparently, they haven't announced pricing yet but it will be in the KvdW range I would think.

I bet it costs more though. Bling is incredibly expensive.

I wouldn't call a powder coating "Bling".
The thing which makes the machine very expensive, is the fact that it is designed and made in Switzerland.
The machine is pretty cool, I filmed Francesca when she was explaining it.

So the water is heated on the fly, by a thermoblock?

Very cool.
And it will fit nicely on the kitchen island of my future apartment when my wife kicks me out for buying it.

So true, mikel!

I rather see an open boiler there... :?

Looks like a water reservoir, not a boiler. Very cutting edge design, looks pretty cool, but maybe not so practical in most home kitchens.

My guess is $10k USD when all is said and done.

Excited to learn more about this machine though!
