Since the first Slayer machine launched in 2008, these other-worldly espresso creations have become more of a fixture in posh coffee houses around the globe. In addition to offering controllable pressure during extraction, Slayer’s machines are equalling as striking in bodywork as they are in technical power. Craftsmanship is key to the brand, building each and every product by hand in Seattle. This small and nimble team continually evaluates their development process, tuning into trends in the exploding coffee industry.
In an ever-DIY world, the team at Slayer now creates more in-depth customizations of materials and finishes, transforming their machines into true works of art for some of the most notable coffee houses to date. Below are five of the most eye-catching renditions:
“Fratello Coffee Roasters & Analog Cafe custom yellow 3-group Slayer with polished X’s, Bamboo Brew and Steam Actuators, Portafilter Handles and Cup Tray.”
“Black on Black–custom 3-group Slayer with matte black body, hubs, actuators and hardware contrasted with black nickel X’s.”
“Blue Bottle Coffee Co.‘s new Slayer is inspired by the 1973 Citroën SM.”
“This V3 machine, headed to Indonesia, comes with the works: 2 groups, grained/nickel-plated body, matte black Xs, cup tray, hot water, and pre-brew timers.”
“Ninety Plus Coffee‘s custom Slayer is the kind of machine that we love to build: beautiful design for a killer concept. A serene white powder-coat contrasts beautifully with black cherry handles and actuators. For our second leather job to date, we paired oxblood leather with white stitches and a chromed trim”
