On Thursday, February 2, Everybody’s Coffee will host the Seattle-based espresso machine company Slayer as they unveil their newest espresso machine to the Chicago coffee community! Slayer is a leading manufacturer of cutting edge espresso machines and is well known in the coffee community for creating beautiful machines with proprietary technology. Their newest espresso machine is no exception. As its name suggests, Steam is designed to steam milk to a better texture and consistency than traditional boiler-powered steam wands found on every other espresso machine. For more information, visit Slayer’s website.
