Londinium coffee roasters
This is the machine we looked high and low for and couldn't buy. So we made it. A commercial lever machine for evaluating espresso roasts accurately, consistently, and easily, yet with a radically reduced form factor so it blends nicely into a domestic kitchen rather than completely dominating the space as commercial lever machines do
LONDINIUM I is designed to be on all day, every day, yet it maintains the correct idle temperature when a shot is not drawn for many hours. The 7Kg commercial lever group is guaranteed to be...
If you are fortunate to live in an area where your tap water is not hard (if limescale deposits accumulate in your electric kettle/jug you have hard water that must not be used in LONDINIUM I) you do not need to use these water softener cartridges in your LONDINIUM I
It is worth noting that even though you may not have hard tap water (as defined above) you may still have other impurities that will negatively impact on the taste of your espresso, most commonly chlorine. In this situation you may choose to use these cartridges as they also contain...

The same group design as LONDINIUM I, although also available with twin spring option on a group by group basis
A 14 litre copper boiler with a 4000W element as standard, or the optional high output 7500W element for rapid recovery in the busiest retail coffee operations in the land - no waiting around for the boiler to recover pressure after you have drawn off a lot of hot water to fill a teapot or similar
The piece de resistance is the design of the dual fuel model (gas/electric) which has been crafted to ensure that the burners will not...

The iconic ‘Ancap’ espresso cup. Manufactured in Italy with hand applied decals, then kiln fired a second time to seal the decal for years of vigorous use in commercial environments. The thick wall porcelain with the deep high quality glaze distinguishes them clearly from cheap imitations. The thick wall ensures the espresso retains its heat, and the small surface area of the cup ensures the crema forms dense & deep, not being able to disperse. No pitting in the glaze where the handle joins the body of the cup, as is often found on low quality cups.
This second edition...
The LONDINIUM tamper redefines what you understand a tamper to be. Just 37mm high. The handle is made from solid wenge hardwood. The base from solid brass. This evolution of accepted tamper design removes all the unnecessary adornments, making it easier to tamp level and with greatly heightened levels of feeling over the amount of pressure you exert on the coffee
Man has been making tool handles out of hardwood for a long time, and we still think it is the correct choice. Whether its high summer or the depths of winter hardwood is never too hot or too cold...
Do you know what 16g of coffee looks like? Neither do we, that’s why we use fine scales every time we run a new coffee.
Fine scales remove one more variable from the espresso equation. These scales will quickly pay for themselves by significantly reducing the amount of coffee you waste, and dramatically improve the taste of your espresso. You can easily taste the difference in your espresso when you change the dose by as little as 2 grams, hence the need for precision. Two AAA batteries and a 200g calibration weight are included. The scales are accurate to...
