    Absolutely ASININE price ~ incredulous, ridiculous, and many more derogatory words I am unable to pronounce. This one is better: https://www.amazon.com/Flair-Espresso-Maker-Manual-Press/dp/B06X916JM8?tag=hg-lever-espresso-20

    Excellent review of a ridiculous device. And, they now have it at $529.

    Something tells me most of James’s patrons are product manufacturers. Must be funny when a manufacturer wins a giveaway of his own product…

    I simply would not be able to go through all that to get my espresso fix a few times a day, especially not first thing in the morning. Perhaps if I was intending to procrastinate from some other impending creative deadline. 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Hi Jim, 
    thanks for the review, just found it accidentally (guess youtube did suggest it to me, o.O didn't stumble across you before :).
    I do wonder if you happen to know Ross with his Rossa etc ( http://www.portaspresso.com/page1001.html )? He has a quite similar concept, and also put a lot of work and finetuning in his machines… It also has an optional pressure gauge.. …similar price range as the Aram. Similar to the Aram, 1-2 Preheating cycles would be necessary when the cylinder is cold.

    There was another south-corean product PREXO available via indiegogo crowdfunding ( https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/prexo-the-most-affordable-espresso-maker-ever#/ ) , but he did'nt make the 2nd crowdfunding round so I've not heard anything new for a long time, which is a shame, as the product is a low-budget version (45$) of these products, but works ok. I am one of the lucky owners, just the filter basket is not in its optimal final state and thats a shame, as it's of plastic and has some drawbacks (stability and cleaning). Also won't be able to withstand 9bar, so it's wise to brew more in the 5-7bar range.

    $495? you’d be better off getting a basic electric machine for that money

    I bought my Aram Espresso maker several months back and have been using it consistently since then. Yes, it's on the pricey side, but so far I think its worth every dollar, the build quality is great and I thoroughly enjoy the user experience. The pre-heating is an issue, but if you pre-heat it while you grind your beans this isn't much of an issue, and while it takes time to heat up, it will also hold the heat as well, so if you're in habit of making multiple shots of espresso you don't notice it much. The extraction and pressure vary greatly according to the dosage, grind size, roast, and quality of the bean, but that's part of the fun, discovering the properties of each bean and its roast. Once you find the right grind size for the bean and roast it's easy to get a good extraction, tweaking the grind size can achieve much greater pressure without over extraction. It does work best with 22grams, anything less than 20 and you tend to lose pressure.

    I'm not an Engineer but for $500 this thing looks, sounds, tastes, feels and smells like a huge rip off build quality seems ok maybe even a little better with the materials they've used but you could probally even guess that temperature and press would cause trouble with it. Time plays a huge factor in this and I dunno about anyone else but I don't have that either.

    Expensive, cumbersome to use and hard to get water to optimal temperature; I can't see how it can justify a $500 price tag.
    It may be portable, but factor in a grinder ànd a hot water source, this thing is not practical for most people.

    For the same price, I can keep a small superautomatic machine in my car.

    I think the biggest issue with this product is that it's priced to compete with the Gaggia Classic Pro. I can't imagine there are many people who value portable espresso enough to take the Aram, with all the compromises it brings, over a Gaggia and an Aeropress.

    Celsius is the wrong way to measure temperature because Kelvin.

    That's a beautiful manual espresso maker. I love the simplicity in the design and the screw top would be my preference over a lever style. I've been watching your videos lately and I really appreciate the honesty you bring to your reviews. As someone who lives in a VERY small home and doesn't yet own a real espresso maker (I have a Nanopresso) I'd love to see a comparison review of picks for a budget friendly/small espresso maker. Something that'd be good for a first time buyer who's just getting into espresso, but not something that's going to eat up a bunch of real estate on the countertop.

    Would you be able to review the Varia Multi Brewer? It’s a seemingly astonishing concept of combining a French press, pour over, and moka pot, but at a sticker price of about $180. I’d like to see if it’s even worth it, me being a frequent moka pot user and interested in the pour over method.
