    9Barista Ushers In a New Generation of Actual Stovetop Espresso

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This looks interesting, shame about the price, at a quoted almost US$400, that's approaching Aust $600, I can see it approaching A$1000 by the time it hits our shores, guess it will just be a matter of time before it's copied by the Chinese at a fraction of the price.

    Wow! What a cool piece of engineering, that would have to take the cake of the smallest dual boiler HX machine on the market.

    That is clever.

    Take a simple device that needs improving and make it way better than you could imagine. Temperature and pressure problems fixed, no more wet towel to cool the top chamber either.

    I've made a gazillion moka pots in my life, even toured Europe with one in the 90's and you could get "good" with practice and effort, this should produce consistent great though.

    Looks like a Bacchi upgraded with a HX.

    Have to admire the engineering and design effort behind this wonderful little unit though.
    Can imagine that it will appeal to a lot of very geeky CSers...

    Yelta, The cost to UK customers is GBP295, so I don't think the cost shipped to Australia (Sydney) from the 9B online shop would be that high - AUD1000. I'd put it roughly $A580-6oo landed - assuming direct delivery that bypasses customs (I've yet to pay GST etc on any of my many overseas purchases).

    UK unit cost is GBP295
    Less 20pc VAT GBP246.
    Landed cost (incl shipping GBP35) GBP281
    Conversion at today's market rate AUS546-550
    Assuming Visa / PayPal retail exchange rates and fees, add roughly 5-6% - AUD580-600.

    The unit would want to be damn good for me to pay $600 for a stove-top coffee pot, no matter how flash. Might consider IF it lives up to the marketing hype. The inventor has a model with a steaming wand on the drawing board, that will be interesting.

    Update from Tom Playford of 9B, answering an email enquiry re cost.

    "Hi Bernard,

    Thank you for your interest in 9Barisata!

    To keep things simple - we change the same price worldwide. So it’s £295 inc VAT in the EU and £295 ex VAT everywhere else. So the price you see on the website is correct, 9Barista is £295 ex VAT + shipping if delivered to Australia.

    GBP is very week at the moment and AUD is strong. You’re getting a good deal on that sides of things.

    All the best

    Tom"

    I'd imagine circa $500-600 street price in Oz. Problematic market though. The Little guy tried twice and couldn't gain sufficient traction and it offered steam for milk as well.

    In theory, I think it looks like the 9Barista might better nail espresso though.

    ....or to put it another way, we just add a 20% surcharge to anyone not in the UK because we couldn't be arsed setting things up fairly and couldn't give a toss that you'll end up paying two lots of VAT/GST on it...

    Sorry Tom, but I'll wait until one's available in Australia and send the VAT component to an Aussie company in the form of a of a sales margin. You can sell it to them wholesale at a discount.

    Sure. My post wasn't a criticism. I've got a Bacchi and they are a great piece of kit, jut not so convenient. Whether I'd swap this for my Flair for long-stay travel purposes....not so sure....but I'd think about it.

    I didn't take your post as such Barry.
    Was just my observation after reading the manufacturer's info, that's all...

    This has been around for a couple of years I think. Not sure how long itís been in full production though. It does look very cool, but I donít think thereís going to be a huge market for it. I have a The Little Guy Espresso maker which I love. It works slightly differently, but also achieves a high quality espresso AND has really good steam. Itís not my main espresso machine, but it just about could be as itís only limitations are making multiple coffees - 1 large or 2 small coffees at a time is it really.
    The new brew device that Iím more interested in is the Varia. Definitely keen to check one of them out.
