Just another pic showing the new tap position. Just a 3d printed abs model to test things out.

The thought and time he has put into the machine shows in the quality of his initial prototype. We went through the inner workings of the machine together and I can say that I will definitely be getting one of these machines if for nothing but the workmanship.
The machine is on par with the Strietman machines in terms of quality, maybe even higher.
Sure, there is no heating element, but the amount of metal in the machine really helps
with heat retention, and it does make a damn good espresso.
Nigel is offering a beautiful machine that does not require a ton of force like most lever machines. It uses standard parts and even has a full size portafilter in a kit small enough to still travel with. No mess to deal with like the espressoforge, and no intricate process like the flair. Grind into your portafilter, preheat water and dump it in, flush, and fill with hot water again and it's ready. Just like most lever machines, you probably won't want to use this machine every single morning, but it is certainly something you will use on the weekends and when showing off to friends.
Put me on the list!
