The passion project of Paul Pratt and his obsessive exploration of the mechanics of espresso, the Cafelat Robot incorporates a wealth of engineering expertise while drawing design inspiration from the 1950's to create a lever espresso maker that is as playful as it is powerful.
Beautifully well made, simple to operate, and designed to delight home baristas of all skill levels with exacting performance, the Cafelat Robot is a work of functional art that you can confidently put to use and proudly leave on display.
Available in your choice of powder-coated colour, and with your choice of professional or pressurised basket.
