Earthy Espresso Makers

Montaag's Functional Espresso Machine Design Features a Concrete Concept

— December 17, 2014 — Art & Design
Unlike the shiny stainless steel espresso machine design you may be accustomed to, the Anza Machine by Montaag has an earthier esthetic. The re-imagined espresso maker looks like a concrete block with porcelain, brass and quarts details. A car cry from the common industrial look, the Anza Machine is almost Flintstone-like.

The espresso machine design has other vintage elements including a knobbly sink tap. The minimalist machine was a collaborative effort from Montaag and Kanen Coffee founder Sam Kanenwisher. Kanenwisher built the machine while Montagg handled the design aspects. The result is an espresso maker that is both an artistic visual piece as well as a functional addition to your home or cafe. Two models are available: one concrete and the other Corian with brass and teak.
