EspressoStrietman designs and develops espressomachines for home use.

The ES machines enables you to influence the espresso making proces, by making the technique visible and letting you be in control.

EspressoStrietman is created and personalised by Wouter Strietman, an espresso fanatic with a lot of knowhow and expertise.

He wants to share his knowledge and make you an espresso craftsman.


The espressomachine for home use has become a square push-button box.

The technique is totally hidden which makes it difficult to feel any attachment. It is an automised proces, you are a total outsider. Influencing the extraction proces is very difficult.

The coffeebean itself is a product of nature, this means it will always change, it is never the same. You have to adjust yourself to the bean, over and over again. The modern home espresso machine however won’t let you!


The decision to build espressomachines is born out of love and frustration.

Knowing very well what the perfect espresso should be like and knowing what part the espresso machine should play.

I found out that the modern home espresso machine is not capable in fulfilling my needs.

I missed the thrill of extracting espresso.

I began to search for a delicate approach, trying to find a technique that harms the coffeebean as little as possible. A machine that will give you all the control you need.

A machine that gives you the freedom to extract your custom espresso.


The ES2 is becoming a product which is capable of achieving the high standard set up by Epressostrietman. It is an ongoing challenge, designing / testing / assembling / dissambling / redesigning and reassambling.

EspressoStrietman is finding out what it means to be an espresso pioneer.
