Looks simple and highly portable. It's nice to see the market warming up for all these similar type machines.

And in other news McDonalds restaurant management become increasingly confused by a trend of customers with strange looking lever contraptions bolted to their car dashboards appearing at drive through windows politely asking for a cup of hot water.... 8)

Maybe a return to a golden age of both low tech and high tech espresso!
It would be nice to see some decent espresso pours on the promo shots, though...

Damn. You beat me to it!

But how that happened is espresso porn that should not be televised.

I think that wooden base, if the cutting board I keep in front of my machine is any indicator, is going to look like crap in about 3 months of daily use. If you don't clean it with detergent the coffee stains are never coming out, and if you clean it with detergent the, assumed, oil finish is going to disappear quickly and stain irreparably anyway. It looks nice but it's impractical, but then they are obviously marketing to people who are going to backpack this thing in on a hike just to make espresso next to a waterfall... so hey, who needs practicality!

Looks nice, but will probably brew under temp unless there is a way to preheat the device. I don't see any way to do it easily with this one.

Ya these things seems to be a trend. "Hey look, this thing doesn't have any cords!" Let's disregard the fact you still have to use some form of energy to heat the water, and you're probably going to waste just as much if not more of said water pre-heating, brewing, cleaning, etc. Whats the issue with things that plug in? Is anyone seriously taking this thing hiking?
