Each Robot is handmade, assembled and tested in Hong Kong by Paul Pratt, it is then packed by Cafelat Team, this is how the brand ensure what has been packed in each and every box.
The Robot is a small, high-quality manual coffee maker that makes real espresso. It uses a few parts, no complicated electronics and only premium materials like stainless steel - IT IS COMPLETELY PLASTIC-FREE.
What do I need to be able to make coffee with the Robot?
All you need is ground coffee, some hot water from a kettle and you are all set.
The Robot has no boiler or heater inside, so you will have to manually fill it with hot water prior to brewing.
The whole process is simple and takes just a few minutes -- no need for any capsule machine and less plastic waste for the landfills.
What drinks can I make?
The Robot makes espresso shots only. You can then drink as straight espresso, add water to make an americano or even make milk drinks if you have a milk steamer.
You can use fresh ground coffee with the professional basket, or you can use pre-ground coffee using the pressurised basket.
Fresh ground coffee from a coffee grinder such as a hand grinder or an electric grinder. Blade grinders will not work. Fresh coffee is to be used with the professional filter basket.
Pre-ground supermarket coffee (e.g. the solid bricks) can be used with our pressurised double wall basket. Pre-ground coffee such as this only really works with the special pressurised basket.
It might take some time to practice, but the Robot gives you the tools to produce great espresso shots.
There are 2 versions, Regular and Barista.
They are essentially the same except that the Barista has a pressure gauge system which measures the actual pressure inside the basket during extraction.
