Nowadays, espresso machines are not a rare find– from the corner of an office to the kitchen of your average joe (yes, that was a joke). These convenient devices are a morning staple for most households all over the world, making it relatively difficult for espresso machine manufacturers (especially new ones) to stand out from the rest of the competition which continues to grow larger as time passes by.
However, this not the case for the AnZa Concrete Espresso Maker, a daring yet innovative brutalist creation whipped up to existence by designers from Montaag, a San Francisco-based design company with a taste for the unorthodox and unique.
The AnZa Concrete Machine is as unusual as it gets, but for all the good reasons. The artistic espresso maker screams innovation with its signature concrete-textured body which breaks out of the usual fancy and sleek design that has been commonplace in the coffee maker industry for too long.
The hand-cast blocky aesthetic of the AnZa Concrete Machine is paired with an elegant combination of porcelain touchpoints, steel, and hints of brass to create an intriguing clash of textures and tones that will surely please the creative eye.
Quality in Every Cup
Fortunately, the functionality of the AnZa Concrete Machine is not sacrificed for its striking design and aesthetic. Ever reliable features such as a porcelain portafilter, pure white steam knobs, a black steel drip tray, and a crystal-clear water tank made out of glass is styled to the highest artistic level possible in the realm of espresso machine technology.
Supported through financial backing from willing donators all over the world, the AnZa Concrete Machine currently has a stretch goal of $195,000 – which will allow the designers behind the revolutionary espresso maker to complete an app purely created for the AnZa Concrete Machine. The planned application will have many smart features such as temperature-control and a pattern-recognition system which will adjust to the user’s daily drinking habits.
