The Little Guy Espresso Machine
Meet The Little Guy the wonderful pint-sized espresso machine that wins friends and devotees everywhere it goes.
Designed here in Australia by coffee fanatic Craig Hiron, The Little Guy is based on the timeless Atomic, beloved since its creation in Italy in 1946. Craig set out to recreate the Atomic's legendary aesthetic while completely renovating the interior, designing from scratch an entirely new, innovative and excellent way to brew beautiful espresso through a stovetop machine.
The Little Guy is simple, classy and a pleasure to use, and produces espresso-style (we can't call it espresso, although it's tempting, because it brews with less than the standard 9 bars of pressure) coffee and steamed milk on par with the better home espresso machines on the market at a fraction of the cost. It's small, portable, easy to use and clean and comes with a guarantee as well as unsurpassed service and support.
The Little Guy works by replacing the electric pump found in a typical espresso machine with steam. It's simple enough, but making coffee on The Little Guy is an experience unlike anything else. It's a little bit slower than other methods, but worth it in every sense. Brewing with The Little Guy is a pleasure: a return to the great coffee tradition of brewing, tasting and sharing.
Years of research and development went into the design, evident in the unsurpassed style and functionality of the stovetop percolator originally called since dubbed 'the little guy.' The Little Guy has won prizes and awards all over the world including at the Australian International Design Awards and the International Design Excellence Awards in America. More importantly, the coffee is fantastic. An espresso or a latte made with The Little Guy is every bit as good as one from an espresso machine. Yes, really.
The Little Guy comes complete with a tamper, DVD guide, two Italian designed latte glasses and a stainless milk jug, all packaged in a robust travel case. As Little Guy fanatics, for the full and glorious experience we also recommend the matching Little Guy premium tamper and naked portafilter handle
We think The Little Guy is amazing, and once you see it action we're sure you'll think so too.
