The Little Guy Espresso Maker isn’t just a mid-century masterpiece meant to sit on a shelf, it’s an awarded producer of stellar pro-level shots and powerful milk steaming. With a 24g portafilter, a commercial-grade milk steaming wand, and the ability to yield 60ml of rich, velvety espresso, this is a espresso maker to fall in love with.
With this surprisingly powerful brewer, you can pull up to 60 ml of balanced espresso that rivals that of commercial espresso machines. Though the pressure maximum is just over 3 bars, this brewer maximizes that pressure to produce espresso that even pros are impressed with.
But not only is the espresso great, the milk steaming is too. The steam wand functions just like a commercial steam wand, allowing you to make smooth, creamy steamed milk and latte art.
“This is a serious bit of gear. The espresso shots are excellent and there’s loads of steam pressure for texturing milk.”
— Scottie Callaghan, the World Latte Art Champion in 2006
Basic The Little Guy Instructions:
- Fill the boiler with water and turn up the heat
- Add 24g of espresso grounds to the portafilter and attach
- After 8 minutes, the water will boil and the espresso will extract
- When the shot’s complete, clean the portafilter and enjoy
The brewer itself is made with 304-grade stainless steel that’s durable, simple, and easy to look at. It’s compatible with gas and electric stovetops, as well as The Little Guy’s own induction top that’s specifically engineered to be compatible with stainless steel (most induction tops are not compatible).
This simple, durable construction doesn’t include many moving parts, wires, or small pieces. This makes it not only easy to clean, but also a lifetime buy that’ll provide espresso shots for decades to come. The compact design also makes this espresso maker portable and a travel case makes it easy to take the brewer anywhere.
This bundle includes a variety of espresso-specific accessories that allow you to start pulling shots right out of the box, including two portafilters, a coffee jug, a nylon tamper, and a silicone tamping mat.
