Budan is a manual espresso which eliminates the complexities of a conventional espresso machine.

Espresso is an essential element to good cup of Coffee, be it cappuccino, Latte and most other coffee beverages.

Espresso is a thick concentrated extract of coffee which is made by passing hot water through densely packed powdered coffee under pressure. Espresso machines have a boiler which generates steam and creates enough pressure to make espresso. A complicated mechanism which needs regular maintenance and is prone to breakdowns regularly.

Handpresso is a manual pressurising espresso maker which uses a hand pump to create pressure and needs hot water from a kettle externally

Aeropress has a two chamber piston system to generate enough pressure to pass water through the densely packed coffee in bottom. Water is added externally from a kettle.

Electric kettle is a key requirement to boil water to about 95-100 degree and then added to handpresso or aeropress as they don't have a inbuilt heater element.

Frother is needed to create foam on low fat milk as it is later added to the Espresso to create Cappuccino or Latte.

A one stop solution to your perfect coffee. With features that are needed to make a perfect cup of cappuccino or latte you are equipped to be a barista on your own.

Drip pan integration 
The drip pan sits on the body in a dedicated chamber, easy to take out and dispose away. The pan is covered with perforated cover which lasts as a semantic to keep the cup on.
