There are many practical reason why people will want to get their hands on the Strietman ES3 espresso machine, but most people will be slave to their eyes when making a consumer-based decision. Absolutely gorgeous, the Strietman ES3 machine is mounted to the wall as though it were an art piece. It certainly looks like one. Made out of birch wood and copper, it has a sculptural aesthetic that adds a decorative touch to its surroundings.

Designed by Wouter Strietman, the Strietman ES3 espresso machine comes with a hefty art-worthy price tag of $1700. Yet the cost is justified through its use of temperature controls, something many coffee aficionados will appreciate more than its looks. This is achieved through a built-in electric water heater.
