|For 200 bucks I would take a punt if I were in the market for a small domestic machine.
They seem pretty enthusiastic and passionate about their coffee which can only be a good thing.
According to their updates they are considering a 240v version. I would imagine there would be more than enough people in Europe interested to persuade them.
This update is going to address our plans for our production schedule, so it applies to everyone. We know itís long, but we wanted to be as clear about everything as possible, so please bear with us. (The second issue is deciding whether to make a 240V international version of the machine, and weíre working on an update about that, too - sit tight!)
They are also supplying finished machines to people in the order of their pledges so you would be some way down the list at this stage. Which means that you will have the benefit of improvements made after the machines have been out in the wild. They have also made it clear that pledges can be rescinded if the lead time is too excessive given the unexpected demand.
We understand that this might be a problem for some of you who have already backed us, and we want you to know that youíre able to rescind your pledge if you rather not support at this stage of the project, and thatís fine - no hard feelings!
200.00 USD = 128.859 GBP

Is £130 going lead to a divorce if it's not up to snuff? Do you want to be a trail blazer or would you rather not take any risks?
There doesn't seem to be enough information on their thermoblock design for anyone to make an informed comment at this stage.
Seems like a cool project to me and a unique proposition.
