Wouter Strietman is graduate from the Eidhoven Design Academy and he seems to care a lot about Espresso.
He’s work is centered on “redefining the craft of Espresso making”…and his last creation, the ES2 espresso machine, sets the tone :
All parts of this machine are custom made, laser cut and CNC milled. Designed from scratch and perfected till the last detail.
The ES2 features two 250 Watt heating elements integrated in the brew group for ultimate thermal conduction and heat build up. The electrics on this machine are very basic, no PID controllers, no circuit boards.
A machine making great coffee, manufactured to last, with low electrical consumption, I think it would make a good input for a yacht.
Searching for the best folding bike to fit in the Aureus XV, the Compact Maxi Yacht for hedonists, I went through the Strida’s website and discovered their limited edition of the Strida 5.0, the Strida 5.0 SX Limited.
No more searching, I found the good one. This folding bike looks great in its limited (collector) edition, with :
a gorgeous leather seat,by Brooks
The amazing Kevlar belt that replaces the greasy chain, which is much better for your trousers,
Nice lightweight aluminium frame,
Weights less than 22 pounds,
Really compact when folded,
The limited edition features larger 18″ Scwhalbe tires for a smoother ride…wow !
