The drip of coffee and the hiss of steam from the espresso machine in the morning. For many, there is no better sound to wake up to. Coffee makers have been a household staple for many years. Through these years, their appearance has remained largely the same. Now, the team at AnZa has shown that it doesn’t take much to revamp a classic. Their coffee machine, made of concrete and Corian, is a sculpture, a household appliance, and a conversation piece rolled into one.
AnZa: When Interior Design Meets Coffee Machine
This extraordinary creation is the product of a design studio and an espresso repair shop. The team ditches the usual plastics and metals, in favour of materials conventional to interior design but rarely seen on an espresso machine. The bold, concrete body of the machine is a delightful surprise. In contrast, the white ceramic accents softens the sharp angles. For a more finished look, there is also one in Corian. With its white Corian body and wooden and brass parts, this version seamlessly joins the appliance and the countertop.
An Espresso Machine with Solid Performance
The coffee machine is complemented by performance as beautiful as its exterior. The manufacturer has benchmarked technical quality against other high-end espresso machines. The stainless steel boiler has a volume of 300 ml and a 1350 W heating element. Additionally, the single boiler system produces steam at 15 bar. On board you can also find a 15 bar ULKA pump with pressure gauge and 9 bar pressure limiter. Crafted the espresso repair shop that shares the production team’s office, you can be sure that your coffee will be perfect every time.
