Simply espresso maker
(11/Feb/2018)
The Newton is a minimalistic espresso machine with a range of well designed features. Below are some of the functional and aesthetic design elements the Newton is becoming known and awarded for.

Non-electric
 
Designing the Newton as non-electric makes it very portable and robust. There is basically no maintenance or cleaning required, and there are no pumps or internal parts or connections to cause problems or become faulty. 
 
The lever-press operation also means the Newton is silent to use - great for making coffee at any hour of the morning or night without waking the house. 
 
8-10 Bar Pressure
 
The high quality seals, piston design and leverage system consistently provides the user with the ability to generate high water pressure required to produce espresso coffee. The pressure can be controlled in a variety of ways - the force applied to the handle, the quantity of coffee used in the basket, the tamping pressure, and the coarseness of the grind. These variables gives the user complete control over the extraction process and allows for a very customisable result.
