Coffee machine makers and design have been in a happy marriage for years. As a product that takes up significant counter real estate, it's always in full view and thus has got to look good. From the professional stainless wonders to the Formula 1 engine machine, we've seen plenty of beautiful caffeine contraptions, but the wall-mounted Strietman ES3 might take the cake as the coolest one we've ever set eyes on.
Made in the Netherlands out of copper, wood, and brass, the Strietman ES3 is a fully-manual espresso machine that uses an Italian method from the 1950s that relies on a lever to compress a column of hot water through the grounds. Since you have control over the lever, with some practice you can customize your method to optimize your brew.
