Generally speaking, making espresso at home is a bad idea. Even the cheapest equipment is expensive (and probably not worth buying), and unless you have a reverse osmosis filtration system, water quality will be a problem.
That being said, these new single group Slayer Espresso machines will make you throw all caution to the wind, sell your car, take out a second mortgage, open a catering company, or simply do whatever it takes to get one. I mean, just look at it!
In Slayers’s words,
Slayer 1-group is the professional barista’s dream machine. It’s small enough to sit on a kitchen counter, light enough to carry to a pop-up cafe, and powerful enough to handle the highest demand.
This version 3 machine features a dual boiler, PID temperature and pressure control, and a touch screen interface. The handles and levers are made with gorgeous Peruvian walnut and the temperature is adjustable to a tenth of a degree. In short, we want one.
Anybody have a wedding we can cater?
