Slayer Machine Pictures

Well – after someone leaked some cell phone pictures of the machine onto the inter-tubes this past weekend, we figured the cat was out of the bag…and we should let everyone know (officially) that the machine actually exists in the wild.

These pictures are of the pre-production machine we hand built in Seattle early December – and is now being tested in Calgary at Fratello (much to everyone’s delight there). If you’re in Calgary – please give us a shout and we’ll schedule a private test drive ;-)

We’ll be updating the blog more often now with details on what the machine actually does & how it does it.

Let us know your thoughts & enjoy the pix.

    Sorry for being the orig one advertising around the orig iPhone photo, the guy that took it didnt really even know what he had I guess. All it took as a post in the ole’ home-barista forums and it took off like wild fire. I do appreciate more photos though, I look forward to more details and it looks great!

  10. Jason Said,

    Hi guys, we’re blown away with the responses from everyone – thank you !!

    Also, we’re getting a lot of requests to be ‘kept in the loop’ with development details so we’re forming an email list. If your interested in being a part of our ‘friends of Obama’ email updates, pop me a note:

    Hey, My Mom suggested I might like this blog. They were entirely right. This blog, actually made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent looking for this type of knowledge! Thank you.

  20. Bryce Toner Said,

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform. Many thanks!

  21. Jason Said,

    :) Thank you Jim
