Bench Testing at the Factory: First Look at the Concrete Shell

Hello, everyone!

Today is an exciting day for the AnZa team. For the first time we can show you the production ready concrete Anza enclosure and top plate. These images show elements of the machine that will be shipped to our AnZa backers in the coming months.

Production Machine Achievements:   As we have shared along the way, it has been a complex process taking the highly customized prototype machine and translating it to production. From machine tooling to material handling, the AnZa has always been a unique product that requires careful consideration. We thank everyone for your patience as we worked with our production partner to achieve the quality we set out to meet. As the images below show, we are pleased with the way the concrete finish is shaping up, as well as the quality of the brass lid with engraved icons. For our Corian backers, stay tuned for more images as they come in.

We have also moved from a hose-fed water tank to an integrated system utilizing a one-way valve. This was an unexpected but happy upgrade for the AnZa.

A Note on the Portafilter Handle & Electric Cord:   Eagle-eyed AnZa fans will notice that the handle and electric cord in these images look a bit different than our earlier prototypes. Not to worry: the ones in these images are placeholders for testing purposes. Handles for your actual orders are being made to specification (wood for Corian and white ceramic for concrete).

As always, we thank everyone for your support throughout this process.
