As much as I love a classic...
pump driven machine, there is nothing quite like the manual espresso maker experience. Each unit is unique in its design, method, and manufacture, but all of them aim for the same outcome: a proper shot of espresso. Over the last few years I've had my hands on quite a few manual machines, and have come to appreciate them in all of their glory. Yet, one machine that doesn't get a lot of attention in the United States is the Polish designed and built, Kazak Rota.
Constructed mainly of metal and brass it's truly a premium option fitting nicely into the same market with the big names of Flair and Cafelat. Yet, its got some unique design characteristics that aim to give the user even more control and consistency than the competition. For example the ability to control when the water begins contact with the coffee puck, which is a small but useful variable. Yet the question remains, is the Kazak Rota an under performer or just under exposed? Well, that's what I'll be getting into in today's video so if you're a manual espresso fan or just a lover of unique coffee gear hit play on the video above and let's brew this.
