Elsewhere on the show, Zachary Carlsen sits down with John Buckman, CEO of Decent Espresso and talks about their brand-new home espresso machine.
The Decent Espresso machine, now shipping its beta models, comes equipped with advanced tech that promises to give the user unparalleled control of pre-infusion time, temperature, pressure, and flow-rate. The design is striking in its simplicity and the sturdy ceramic drip tray and water tank give it a nice heft. One notices that there are no analog buttons on this machine as it’s all controlled digitally through a tablet.
Buckman and his team spent years developing the Decent Espresso machine and a number of components and barista tools in their Seattle lab. It’s a thoughtful piece of gear and one we’ll be keeping an eye on as they roll-out their first-gen models early next year.
All this and much more on this week’s episode of the Sprudgecast, fueled by a splash or three of the Finca El Injerto Grand Cru Cold Brew from Stumptown Coffee and producer Arturo Aguirre.
