Otto Espresso Maker- 01.24.08

otto1.jpgI just spotted the Otto Espresso maker on the Appliancist, which luckily has some pics of the gorgeous twist on classic stove top espresso since the Otto website isn’t quite ready, teasing me with an “Otto: the little guy’s coming” message. “The OTTO espresso maker is designed to produce two espresso shots with steam milk. An automatic cut off prevents burning of the coffee grind, and after the perfect amount of coffee is dispensed, the boiler primes itself for steaming of the milk to produce two perfect homemade lattes.”

On how it works, Appliancist says:
“The group cup which holds the coffee in place, when extracting the espresso, doubles as the boiler lid removal tool, allowing the hot boiler lid to be removed for refilling for the next round of coffees. The robust group cup handle and steam control knob also allow the machine to be moved easily when hot. The seals of this stove top espresso maker use DuPont Viton fluoroelastomer, which provides excellent sealing properties as well as unsurpassed durability. Safety valve prevents the buildup of steam pressure inside the boiler past a safe operating point. Large handles are robust and convenient. Coffee is easy to load and a custom coffee tamper allows the operator to tamp coffee grind at a perfect pressure to produce espresso.”

Looks to me like a copy of the legendary and very rare Atomic espresso maker - originally from Italy and then refurbished in batches in Australia. Is it the same guys in Oz making the Otto? Can’t wait to get one!
