Newton Minimalist Espresso Maker

By: on October 14, 2017

I wonder if the Newton lever-press espresso maker is so named because it exemplifies the scientist's laws of motion or because Sir Isaac just loved him a strong cup of coffee. Or maybe the manual, minimalist wonder is named after a different Newton altogether. Olivia. Thandie. Fig.

The forthcoming machine from Newton Espresso is designed to percolate "clean, simple" coffee. No pumps and no internal parts / connections to wear down or break mean you'll have your morning caffeine nearly maintenance- and cleaning-free. The trade-off, of course, is that you'll have to press it yourself.

But additional Newton Espresso returns on your elbow grease input include:

  • Silent operation, so you can brew at any hour of the day or night.
  • <
  • 8 to 10 bars of pressure, thanks to some high quality seals, the piston design, and leverage system. Users control pressure with the force they apply to the machine's handle, the quantity of ground coffee they put in the basket, their tamping pressure, and grind coarseness.
  • A wall mountable design. The Newton has a relatively small footprint to begin with, but takes up even less space screwed into a stud next to the fridge. Or the bed.
  • Portability. Pack the little Newton in a bag and take it anywhere.

For me, Newton's final piece of gravitational pull is its manly, modern look. If you're on board, check out the espresso maker's Kickstarter campaign, and pledge for one of your own through October 24, 2017.
