[quote="Balthazar_B"]I wouldn't be surprised if HB members were >95% of the backers at this point. I think I was #12.
There are also a number of Coffee Snobs from down-under that I know have backed. I'm #35 for an aluminium Robot.
It wasn't clear on the Kickstarter page that the only water contact areas are the stainless steel piston, stainless steel filter basket and the silicone seal. The aluminium referred to is the body and base only. I included a comment on the Kickstarter page to clarify this and Paul has responded to confirm that "there is no aluminium contact with the coffee or water whatsoever. The alu parts are just the frame. The water only contacts the stainless steel and a small FDA approved silicone seal". This should satisfy those that have concerns about aluminium contact.

And I was #4! Barista in retro green. I've been waiting patiently for this...time to get back into espresso at home.

I'm the 6, only because the shipping cost stopped me at first

I'm #16 and #130 wouldn't let me order 2 at the same time so I created another account
