AnZa is an espresso machine that uses materials seldom found in kitchen appliances—concrete and Corian. The result is both an espresso machine that brings life to any kitchen and an unparalleled conversation piece. Born out of a passion for good coffee and boredom with the default espresso machine vernacular, the AnZa brings new life and love to your countertop.
The coffee world has undergone rapid change over the past few decades. In spite of industry innovations, little change has occurred around the aesthetics of espresso machines. The Montaag Products team, composed of designers who have worked on a variety of products for both Fortune 500 clients and early-stage startups, sought out another option. The result is the AnZa espresso machine, produced in two variations: one, brutalist concrete, and the other, an elegant white Corian.
"When we began this project, it was a creative endeavor to explore what an espresso machine could feel like through the use of completely honest materials," says Montaag Designer, Andrew Smith. "But after the positive feedback, we have been working towards scaled production."
The team releases the new production machines after four years of testing and refinement, ensuring that the machine is both beautiful and functional, delivering high-quality performance with every shot of espresso. The new AnZa machines offer more than a strong cup of coffee and distinctive profile. The concrete and Corian models will be equipped with connectivity, giving users remote access, IoT integration, and the ability to program machines to fuel espresso habits.
