So you’ve had your eyes on our Instagram. And you’re starting to imagine a custom Slayer with your name on it. Where do you begin?
We’ve got just the place.
All of the info about customizing Slayer is now right here, not more than a few clicks, taps, scrolls, and swipes away. Start with the Custom home, then browse our metal options and wood palette. Oh, and remember to breathe.
Inspiration lives here:
For every sensational product line and piece of kit, there’s – somewhere – a pile of dusty prototypes, a group of starry-eyed beta testers, and an R&D team in need of much R&R. Slayer started right along these lines (plus or minus the vacation time) but, if you’ve followed along, you’ll notice: we’ve come a long way.
“How did we get here?”, we sometimes wonder. The evolution of our favorite espresso machine has fascinated, enlightened, humbled, and amused us. Its stages are many; its process, fun; its result, fulfilling. Now, happily building Slayer V3, we’re remembering the earlier versions and tackling your big question: What’s the difference?About Us
In Eastern Washington State, a new cafe serves espresso and pour-over from a vintage Airstream trailer. Step inside and you’ll see the most uncommon equipment, a machine that matches the rig. Now look at the barista: she’s hardly 8 years old.
You’re at Ström Coffee. That’s Miette. And this is her Slayer.
An espresso machine that reveals all secrets – and a cafe that bares none. Stay close as we seek the facts concerning this fabled beast and its faceless master. And, remember, nothing everything is as it seems.
Behold: rumor realized and myth manifest. The glass Slayer, incarnate, extracts among us.
Slayer’s collaboration with Ninety Plus is no coincidence. Years back, Jason and Steve Holt! (Ninety Plus, VP) spoke for the first time during a casual phone call; two hours later, they knew that they had just ignited a lethal spark.
When Ninety Plus joined us for the 2010 SCAA Event in Anaheim, it became clear that we were on to something. Pulling their Nekisse N2, we all enjoyed such nuance and clarity as we’d never before experienced. And we’ve been collaborating at trade shows around the world ever since.
Eventually, we learned about Ninety Plus’ hushed plans for a new retail concept. Working with them to design a special Slayer was a no-brainer, and the result is stupid-cool.
The SCAA Event comes to Seattle this year and we wouldn’t miss it for the world. Visit us at booth 9016 to sample the show’s best spro, prepared by the featured roasters below.
19 roasters, 3 machines, 1 booth. Rotating guests from all over North America will be brewing their best on two of our new single group machines, while Ninety Plus serves top-scoring espresso from a new, custom 3-group.
