Final Prototype

Hi everyone,

We wanted to post another quick update for of you all showcasing some photos and videos of our final prototype in action. This prototype is currently going through the tooling stage where each individual part and mould is prepared for production. 

As always thank you all for your ongoing support!

Hi all,

Firstly we wanted to thank you all for your ongoing support throughout The Porta Presso project.

We do understand that the project has taken a lot longer than both yourselves and we anticipated and we do apologise for this. However, that being said we do want to stress that we have been doing everything within our means to complete this project as soon as possible without jeopardizing the final result. This project has proven very challenging for our team of experienced engineers, developing new technology is always challenging and as we have learned it is very hard to foresee difficulties that may be faced along the way and anticipate the overall time frame.

In hindsight, we were optimistic with respect to our timeframes by presuming that everything would go according to plan and that we would have few setbacks. However, we would like to stress that all timeframes we have given have been a collective judgement and were what we thought to be realistic for us to achieve based on our knowledge at that stage of the project.

What developments have been done since our last update?

A number of both major and minor developments have been made since our last update. These include altering the material that several parts are manufactured out of. We found that the material we have been using for many parts simply could not withstand the pressure required to extract the coffee, and after producing multiple coffees these parts would begin to buckle under the pressure.   To ensure the longevity of The Porta Presso, although increasing the costs of production, we have opted to use more durable materials to ensure that they will be able to withstand the required pressure.

We have also opted to reduce the bean, milk and water container sizes down to one coffee per replenishment.  This has allowed us to significantly reduce the overall size of the unit, as well as speed up the overall time required to make a coffee, drastically improving the user experience.   We have narrowed the assortment of coffees that can be created down to the three most popular coffee types, a latte, a long black/Americano, and a short black/espresso shot.  We concluded that the differences some coffee types, i.e. a Latte, Cappucino and Flat White were so minuscule that it did not justify the increased requirements to include these.   We feel that the coffee types we have selected cover all of our bases.  

Another change we have made is the decision to separate the grinder from the main unit. We came to this decision as due to the size and shape of the product, the stability of the product was causing concerns during the grinding process.   The grinder, which is very heavy, was located on the top of the unit and was significantly impacting the stability of the unit.
Separating the grinder from the main body also reduces the size of the unit significantly, our prior decision to shift from our original design of a manual grinder to an automated grinder increased the overall grinder size. 

The new grinder will remain lightweight and portable and have the ability to function solely off the battery power, the principal difference being the fact that this is now optional.

We envision the consumers will be able to opt to keep their grinder plugged in at home and can simply grind their beans directly into the filter basket and then insert this into the main unit at the same time as filling up the milk and water compartments.  On the contrary, if you want to take your grinder with you this is also an option.

We want to reiterate that this trade-off was made after weeks of deliberation.  However, we concluded that the portability of the unit and speed of the brewing process was favoured over the grinding function especially due to the availability of pre-ground beans.

Where do we stand at this point in time?

Currently, we have a 3D printed version of what we hope will be the final prototype that we look to have manufactured in roughly 2-4 weeks time (end of June/beginning of July). From here begins the tooling phase, where each individual component is tooled and prepared to be manufactured. We expect this to take 1-2 months. After tooling is complete we will move into pilot production where a production run of 100 units will be produced, the purpose of this trial production is to test the production run and ensure that everything functions correctly and the final product is the best possible version. Extensive testing will then be carried out on these machines to ensure quality and durability. We expect this to take 2-3 months. If trial production is successful and we decide to continue to full production with no changes, then the units produced during this pilot production run will be shipped out to our backers chronologically.  Following trial production, we will commence mass production. We expect this to take 2-3 months.

We understand that this project is taking a lot longer than we all anticipated and we apologise for this. We want to place emphasis on the fact that we have done everything possible to get your Porta Presso to you as soon as possible and maintain the highest quality product.  We have a full team of experienced engineers and designers working full time on this project. We are completely aware and understanding of the fact that some of you may not be willing to wait any longer.

Unfortunately, Indiegogo does not allow backers to be refunded after the completion of the project due to the nature of crowdfunding campaigns being that a project is either completed and backers are shipped their reward or the project cannot be completed but all the funds raised have been spent trying to complete it. Although Indiegogo will not let us process refunds at this stage (we are working on an alternative solution for those who purchased through Indiegogo and wish to be refunded), we are able to process refunds for anyone who placed their order through our website directly.

We would like to offer this option to anyone who did so and does not wish to continue waiting until production. If you wish to be refunded for this, your order will be cancelled and you will not receive your Porta Presso upon the completion of the project.  But we thank you greatly for your support in getting us to this point.

To avoid disappointment, please do keep in mind that if you opt for a refund you will not be able to purchase The Porta Presso again at your discounted price.

We thank you all for your continued support throughout this journey and can not wait to show you all the final product.  This has been a big learning curve and has provided a great experience for our entire team and we can not wait to show you the final product.

2019 Update

Hi all,

Happy new years!

In our last update we talked about how we have been redesigning The Porta Presso to be fully functional off battery power alone, without the need for the C02 canister that our original prototypes required. we are pleased to let you all know that we are currently assembling our first prototype with this new design. This will allow The Porta Presso to function from battery power alone so that it can be used to make a fresh coffee anywhere and anytime. We have also introduced a power socket to the design to allow users who do have access to power but may be out of battery to simply plug The Porta Presso into a wall socket or cigarette lighter. Images of how the power socket will look can be seen on the new renders at the end of this update.

We have a great team working round the clock to oversee production and are more excited than ever to deliver The Porta Presso to our amazing backers around the world.

We’ve made so much progress over the last couple of months. as you all know, High quality and effectiveness is of utmost importance to us, and we’ve been working diligently to ensure everything we’re doing will deliver the best experience.

We encountered an issue with the milk container and pipeline.  While the milk container is easily removable and dishwasher friendly, the pipeline and flow sensor can not be easily removed and as milk is easily metamorphic, even with cleaning cycles in play, this would make it incredibly difficult to pass the food grade certifications.  Thus, we have modified the design to make the cup a storage container for the milk and integrated a secondary storage container to allow the consumer to make two cups of coffee without the machine needing to transfer the milk from the milk container into the cup.

Since our last update, we have taken a lot of steps to get The Porta Presso closer to shipping.  We have finalised our new MD and ID design which is a major manufacturing milestone. Renders of the new design will be presented at the end of this update.

Having already manufactured prototypes with our old design we have gained some valuable information. At this point in time, we are currently assembling the first of our new line of prototypes. Going forward, our timeline has our second prototype with our new and improved designs scheduled for March, our third prototype scheduled for May and our trial production run to commence in June. This will be followed by our first production run as well as shipping in july..

Below are some pictures that will hopefully get you as excited for the release of The Porta Presso as we are.

Thanks again,

The Porta Presso Team

Progress Report

Hi all,

over the last couple of months The large majority of the work that has been done has been on screen design work and electronics engineering.

On the design side of things, we have put in a lot of work into redesigning both the exterior and mechanical design of The Porta Presso. It was necessary that the exterior design was adjusted alongside the internal changes that we have made. The render below shows our current design that our most recent prototype has been made from.

A lot of time has been spent redesigning the internal structure of The Porta Presso to support a fully battery powered unit that does not require any gas as a source of energy. With a key focus for us being portability, The Porta Presso needs to be both lightweight and small in size. The removal of the original C02 canister system has meant an increase in battery size that has involved a lot of planning, design work as well as hands-on testing to ensure that the most appropriate battery is used, and a good balance is found between battery size and the unit housing size. Whilst it is important that the battery has enough power to produce the required cups of coffee, this cannot be in excess as this would be an unnecessary size increase. 

With portability being a top focus our new prototype has been designed to produce two cups of coffee. at a later stage we do look to conduct tests to potentially increase the amount of coffees per PREPARATION.


As always, thank you to everyone for your ongoing support.

Brianna Ellin

Hi everyone,


As always thank you for for your ongoing support and here is an update as we continue to progress with The Porta Presso journey.


On a side note, over the past couple of months we have made great progress in sourcing our own beans.  As you may or may not be already aware, the process from soil to palate of the coffee bean is vital and can have an important influence on the coffee flavour.  Thus we have done everything we can to ensure that you love our coffee as much as we do. We have sampled beans from every variety, farming practice, terroir, roast profile, blend, to ensure we have the highest quality of beans.   For those of you who aren’t familiar of the process of a coffee bean and how each of these stages influences the taste here is some insight:


  • Even before the plant that bears the coffee fruit has begun to grow, there's a very important factor that will influence the crop - the variety. It's not merely Arabica vs Robusta. Within the species Arabica, there are dozens of known varieties and more being discovered and created with time.

  • Then there is Terroir. Terroir is one of those lofty terms that can alienate some people, but really, terroir is just influence of where the coffee is grown. We all know that coffees from Kenya generally taste pretty different to coffees from Brazil. We also know that coffees from nearby areas can have similarities. These are the results of the influences of terroir.

  • The practices of the farm where the coffee is grown will have a huge impact on the taste of the coffee you drink. Everything from the use of chemicals to planting patterns & pruning regimen are ultimately going to affect the nature of the crop.

  • One particularly important farming practice is picking. Much as with other agricultural crops, coffee is best when it is picked at optimal ripeness, but of course, coffee cherries don't ripen at a uniform rate. This means that for the best results, cherries must be picked by hand, by labourers who are trained to pay attention to the ripeness of the fruit they are harvesting.

  • Once a coffee cherry is picked, the coffee seed has to be dried before being transported and eventually roasted by a roaster. The ways that this is done can vary widely and can have a huge influence on what the coffee finally tastes like.

  • The roaster helps to realise the full potential of the coffee by carefully crafting a roast profile that will suit that set of beans. This isn't as simple as light or dark. The roaster has to fine tune variables like roast time, temperature change, rate of rise, drum speed, air flow & cooling speed.

  • Last but certainly not least, brewing is the final stage in the process from soil to palate, which does certainly play an important influence on coffee flavour.


Taking all of the above into consideration we feel we have narrowed it down to a few different blends which we think are among the best coffee beans in the world.  We will be offering a variety of different blends with The Porta Presso to suit peoples’ different tastes.


The last couple of months of The Porta Presso machine development have been both rewarding and incredibly challenging. During our testing phases we have encountered challenges around the quality of the coffee not being up-to the standards we have set ourselves.


We have been able to single out the main contributing factor to this being that the C02 being used to generate pressure, although it does its job, it tarnishes the overall flavour of the coffee produced which was a concern as quality coffee is our primary objective.


This is an unfortunate result in the development of The Porta Presso and we have since had to have some of the primary compartments re-designed and manufactured for further testing.


the porta presso team has finalised a solution which we have proved to be feasible and are now underway with further testing.   We feel that the decision to move forward without the C02 concept will ultimately be for the best, and will produce a better end result. This will mean that users will not need to continue to replace C02 canisters and instead will only need to simply recharge The Porta Presso which is a huge cost saving to the end-user of the product. We are mindful of the fact that many people have already ordered their Porta Presso with C02 canisters and we simply plan to refund all orders where the C02 was purchased individually and where bundles were purchased, we plan to compensate in an extended bean subscription. If you feel unsatisfied with this resolution, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can look at an alternate solution. Since revising the initial design, we have made quick progress and are currently running the heating chamber until we reach 9 bars of pressure (this is the commercial optimum pressure).  Once the desired pressure is achieved we open the valve to the portafilter basket, extracting the shot. We then run the shot from 9 bar down to 3 bar which takes around 20-30 seconds. Once the shot is extracted, the remaining 3 bar of pressure is used to aerate the milk. The resulting temperature we are receiving from both the frothed milk and the extracted shot falls between 40 - 50 degrees  This is extremely positive as the milk is reaching 60 degrees initially and once cooled slightly and mixed with the shot, this falls to a drinkable temperature. We are now integrating customisability into this process.


Constant 9 bar of pressure is common in most coffee machines. The way The Porta Presso is currently designed means that the hot water being fed through the coffee grinds begins the pour at 9 bar of pressure, then drops off to 3 bar. A leading espresso machine brand uses the same pressure system as a positive feature. This curve in pressure results in a fuller flavour extraction by being less harsh in the final stages. This variance in pressure we believe will become a sought after feature of The Porta Presso.

PortaPresso Timeline.001.jpeg

We have since opted away from frothing milk through channels in the side of the cup and have replaced it with a fixed steam wand.  Thus reducing parts required and also the potential for failure. From multiple tests, we have found we can position the steam wand at a fixed height to achieve a coffee similar to that of a flat white to a cappuccino.Ph


We look to reveal the final Porta Presso design in a video, showcasing both the interior functionalities and exterior aesthetics. We look to have this out to you in a later update prior to going into tooling and full production.


Photo shown is from one of our milk frothing tests and had no coffee added.

We also understand that some backers addresses’ may have changed since placing their order for the Porta Presso, and consequently we will be emailing everyone to confirm all shipping details prior to the dispatch.


Thank you all

Getting there...

Hi all,

Thanks for your continued support and thank you to everyone who gave us their feedback and voted for their preferences with regard to the LCD screen interface from our last update.

Following our last update, we have made great advancements in the development of The Porta Presso.  


Since our last update, we incorporated in the ability for the user to adjust The Porta Presso grinder settings to adjust the size of the grinds.  As with any coffee grinder, over its lifespan, it will eventually wear with use. By being able to adjust the grind settings it will allow users to simply adjust the settings slightly, making the grinds finer if the grinder starts to wear instead of needing to fully replace the grinder.


The Porta Presso team have made vital progress with the portafilter basket height adjustment to allow it to seal off the tamp. We have redesigned the portafilter basket slide in order to achieve a better seal when straining the coffee grounds. This involves a manual tab that is pushed across when inserting the basket. This slide pulls the basket in the extra 5mm and then screws it up onto the seal. When removing you slide it back the other way and as you do it will release from the seal and force itself out 5mm for better grip to remove the basket easily. Not only does this design allow us to fully seal off the chamber to allow us to generate the pressure required but it also acts as a failsafe to ensure that the portafilter basket will never come out unintentionally.  

The image below shows the two current manual adjustments of The Porta Presso. The coffee grind adjustment (top) and the seal adjustment (bottom).  Please note: this is a rendered image for engineering purposes and is not an image of the final exterior aesthetic of The Porta Presso.


Everything needs to be sealed off efficiently to ensure that during the espresso brewing process the coffee is able to be abstracted at the optimal 9 bar of pressure.  This has been an important phase of the development to ensure that the coffee produced is of high quality. To optimize this, we focused on the seal design for both the lip and ring seal around the portafilter basket along with the O-ring between the cup and cup collar to prevent any leakage.

We have also re-engineered The Porta Presso cam system which developed excessive wear during the previous tests.  A new motor will replace this initial system, which was finalized before sending off the remaining parts to our prototype manufacturer.  To house the new motor, we have expanded the backpack slightly. This is a better resemblance of what the final product will look like, and cut in from the top. This is subject to change, as this may be able to be scaled down with production materials.


After refining our designs, we had our updated parts manufactured and a new Porta Presso prototype created.  The key parts in the new prototype have been machined in aluminium in order to withstand the operating conditions and allow us to conduct extensive testing.

Bellow a diagram of The Porta Presso's new test rig with both the valving and heating chamber external to the machine housing. This is to allow for a complete run-through of the brewing process but also giving us the ability to work on one component at a time allowing us to improve each aspect one by one. Once we are happy with the standard at which each individual element operates then we will work on incorporating these parts back into The Porta Presso housing.


All the parts for The Porta Presso prototype are now functioning and all aspects of the system work individually, we can successfully grind beans, boil water, extract coffee and froth milk.  From here it is refining each element, inserting everything into The Porta Presso housing and then beginning our tooling/manufacturing process.

What have we been up to?

Since our last update a lot of work has been done with The Porta Presso’s development.

We have finalised the manufacturer that we intend to use to produce our final product. After liaising with multiple different manufacturers we have found the most appropriate one to work alongside our team with the production of The Porta Presso units. The manufacturer we have chosen have a commendable background in the coffee industry and we pride them on the quality of their products, thus making them a good partner for us.

In our last update we were heading into extensive testing with our test jigs to allow us to generate accurate test results and test multiple functions of the device. The Porta Presso team has been hard at work putting a lot of time into this with our main focus being on generating enough pressure to extract the coffee at an optimal setting and the heating/frothing of the milk.


One of the main problems we had originally anticipated was not being able to generate enough pressure. However, we were pleasantly surprised when our first test jig generated such a substantial amount of pressure that it blew out the joints of the test jig.   This test jig was manufactured from prototyping material, not the material to be used in final production however we have since redesigned the test-jigs with more durable materials to enable us to undertake further testing and achieve the required 9 bars of pressure.


The process of heating and frothing the milk has been tested, with the team originally aiming to replicate settings such as amount of froth and temperature off a standard New Zealand cafe latte. From here we look to expand and include settings for other common coffee types.  The results from this were also very pleasing and our design has been confirmed to be feasible.


Next Steps:

While we are yet to encounter any major setbacks, we have found that every stage of the testing process is taking longer than originally anticipated.  We have made it clear that we won’t settle for anything less than the perfect espresso coffee and as a result we have found ourselves investing significant time into the testing and calibration process in order to achieve this.  This has also lead to the need to get custom parts redesigned and re-manufactured as they weren’t as perfect as we wanted them to be. We noticed this trend early in the development phase and in order to operate in the most timely manner, we have honed and manufactured multiple slightly different parts for the same purpose and tested this on a trial and error basis for all aspects of the machine.  This has not only saved us a lot of time, but it has also enabled us to determine which methodologies are most appropriate.

With more custom parts being manufactured as we speak, over the next couple of weeks we look to combine each element of the brewing process, which are now individually functional, into a single device.   Following this, next month we look to have all of these individual elements working cohesively and inserted into The Porta Presso’s housing. From here, we look to refine the user interaction process to ensure it is beautifully functional and easy to use.  We will thereby move into further tooling and overall interior and exterior refinements to ensure everything is working to the high standards that we have set ourselves.  


Tooling goals:

Although our ultimate goal during the upcoming tooling phases is to ensure The Porta Presso produces a coffee of high barista quality we have also set ourselves smaller goals that we wish to accomplish, these include but are not limited to;

  • Overall size: Where possible getting rid of excess space and strategically position internal components to keep the size of The Porta Presso as small as possible to ensure it is as portable and as convenient as possible.

  • Noise level: Although every coffee machine is going to make some noise during the brewing process, where possible without taking away from quality we look to minimise the noise created.


Have your say:

Our design team has been heavily focused on the electrical interface and how users will interact with The Porta Presso through use of the built in LCD screen. We have designed multiple different display options and have since narrowed it down to 3 different types that we envision being a good fit for The Porta Presso with each different option having its own advantages.


Design 1: 100% touch screen controlled with no buttons. This option would have the user simply tapping on the LCD screen to select their options.
Advantages compared to other designs include it being easy to select the option you want by simply tapping on a picture instead if having to scroll through the options until you get to the option you want to select.

Design 2: Three physical click buttons and no touch function. This option would have users navigate through the settings menu and select their options via the use of physical buttons that they would click.
Advantages include that the overall machine would be more durable not having to rely on the touch function.


Design 3: A singular multi purpose rotatable button and optional touch screen. This button would be used to power on and off The Porta Presso as well as being able to be rotated either way to select options. Touch screen will also be available with users being able to swipe either way to select options.
Advantages include the possibility of having more information about each coffee visible on each screen because not all the coffees will be needing to be on the same screen.



Although these designs are only rough at this point our design team will be working hard on them at the same time our engineering team works on the physical components.  We welcome your opinion and if you wish to have your say and give us your feedback please feel free to click here to be taken to our website where you can let us know your thoughts.  While this is completely optional we would love your input as this will be taken into consideration when finalising our design and user interface.


Thank you all for your ongoing support.

Hi everyone,

We’re in the process of refining every aspect of The Porta Presso.

Everything thus far is on schedule.  Thanks for your ongoing support.  Please note that extensive engineering has also since been completed on the mechanical side of the PortaPresso however this information is confidential at this stage due to intellectual property protection.  

It’s not too late yet.  If you know friends or family who would like to purchase The Porta Presso, direct them to our website where they can purchase the device for a pre-order price and also purchase add-ons such as additional cups and beans.  

Over the past few weeks we have been working on developing the software to interact with the hardware. We can now operate the valving and selection process via our test components. We are currently using 3 separate buttons to make the desired coffee selection. The first button is “select/enter” for when you chose your desired coffee. The second button is “next,” this scrolls through options.  The third button is a “back” command, say your on the select number of shots stage but you want to change what coffee you selected it allows you to move back and do so. Three buttons give it a minimalist look and can sit flush with the machine housing. Throughout the selection process, prompts will be displayed on a LCD screen along with the current choice. We are aiming for a balance between something like a GoPro where there isn’t enough selection prompting, while still maintaining the minimalist look and not over complicating the selection process.  Once prompted with the select coffee screen and with the use of the next button, you can scroll through your various coffee types. This selection is on a loop so if you keep pressing the next button you will eventually come around to the start of the list again - as shown below. When happy with the choice the user presses the select button which will take them to the select shot selection.

Once Coffee and shot selection is made you will be prompted with the option to start the coffee making process while maintaining the ability to go back and change your selections. When start is selected the appropriate settings for the choice will be sent through to the motor. The motor controls how much water and milk is used along with frothing time and valve selection. While this is happening another motor controls the tamp and grinding settings beginning the coffee making process.

The Porta Presso has been designed with an autonomous inter face in mind. Wanting the user to be able to select the desired coffee, start, the machine. and step away without any other input required (e.g. grinding, tamping, frothing).   As seen on the mock-up below. 

Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 6.58.05 PM.png


Cup Detail:  The cup now has a pattern that matches the ‘backpack’ of the main body when it is screwed on. This makes it more intuitive for the user to properly line the cup when screwing it on.  As seen on the mock-up below. 

Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 7.05.57 PM.png


Adjustable Grind Setting:  We have added the grind density adjuster to the side of The Porta Presso, it was strongly recommended we had the adjuster by our coffee mechanic. This adjuster allows the user to fine tune the density of the grind creating the optimum coffee. By having this manual it removes the need to add any extra motors or circuitry keeping The Porta Presso as small as possible.  As seen on the mock-up below.


Screen Shot 2018-03-04 at 6.49.41 PM.png


This week we have been focusing on refining our test jigs to allow us to generate more accurate test results and test multiple functions at the same time. We consulted with an external espresso mechanic who gave us feedback on the overall system, test jigs and mechanical function.  The outcome of this was very positive.  The results from the test jig prototype will be included in our next update.

Thanks for your continued support.

Grinder Development

Hi all,

Over the past two weeks our team has been hard at work developing The Porta Presso’s grinder and compactor component.

We had originally envisioned that The Porta Presso would have a manual grinder integrated into the body. However, recent testing has concluded that using a manual grinder was not optimal in achieving a barista quality coffee. After trying multiple different manual methods the result of grinding beans manually always ended with the grinds being both;

  • Extremely inconsistent: With the manual grinder the beans that were ground first would become finer than the rest and thus would fall to the bottom where the blade was located. Resulting in those same beans continuously being ground with the top layer of beans not getting ground sufficiently.

  • Overall the grind was not fine enough: Meaning that when boiling water is pushed through it with pressure to make the coffee shot it would go through to fast resulting in a weak watery coffee.

  • Time consuming: An impractical amount of time and energy was needed to use the manual grinder.

As a result of this, to ensure that The Porta Presso will be able to produce high quality grinds and ultimately make a great tasting coffee we have opted to integrate an automated grinder that will be powered by a lightweight motor. Using an automated grinder allows The Porta Presso to accurately and consistently grind beans to the optimal consistency at ease for the consumer.   

See photo below for a comparison of beans ground with our automated grinder (Left) compared to a manual grinder (Right).

What's next?

Since adopting an automated grinder into the device, our team has been working on an innovative means of integrating the tamping unit to work alongside the new grinding unit.  This tamping system will cater for the sizing constraints of The Porta Presso, ensuring that it remains compact and lightweight.  The manual aspect of the tamping system has also been honed throughout this process and we have since opted to automate this aspect, overall automating the entire device for user convenience and eliminating room for human error during the brewing process.

We are exploring three potential tamping models, all of which will be tested and revised over the next week to ensure we settle for the most appropriate and effective model.  The results from these tests will be included in our next update.  


Thank-you for your continued support.

Indiegogo Success

Hi everyone,

With our Indiegogo campaign recently coming to an end we wanted to say thank you to each and every person who has backed The Porta Presso's campaign! We are pleased to say that we have raised over 100% of our set target! Everyone who backed our campaign on Indiegogo will be receiving their Porta Presso before anyone else. For those who missed out on our Indiegogo offer you can still pre order The Porta Presso here at a discounted pre order price!

We are now two months fully underway with Global Design & Production who are currently engineering the compressed air system to enable it to exert the optimal amount of pressure to froth the milk and pump the boiled water effectively around the device. Our previous R&D determined this to be the most technical aspect of the project, however, due to extensive research we have been able to navigate thus far without any difficulties.

Thanks again to everyone for the support, we are very excited for the upcoming months and hope you all are too.
