Description

Otto 'the little guy' Espresso Stove Top Maker

The Little Guy is an award-winning premium espresso system for home use. The Little Guy has no moving parts, ensuring near zero servicing and perfect performance for the rest of your life.

The Little Guy will work on a narrow gas flame, requiring the heat focused to the centre of the boiler. Electric stovetops will provide a perfectly reliable performance given the full coverage of heat over the boiler base.

We do however, highly recommend the Little Guy induction top as the optimum heat source, offering the most efficient and accurate drive for the boiler, and a great addition to the family!

About The Little Guy

In 2005 in Sydney, Australia, Craig Hiron looked at his iconic stovetop espresso maker and wondered if it could be re-engineered internally so it'd pull genuine espresso shots and texture milk perfectly. Craig's passion for espresso coffee demanded both the shots and the milk texture had to be to the standards of the best cafes in the world.

Award-winning industrial designers,Tiller Design were engaged along with Dr Allan Wallace (a professor of thermal dynamics), mechanical specialists, engineers and a manufacturing agent, Doug Marshall. After four years of research, development, design, tooling and production, the Otto Espresso Maker became a reality.

In 2013 Otto espresso was rebranded as the Little Guy. The rebranding was purely a trademark change. The company ownership, our people and our highly functioning products remain exactly as they've always been.

Our design and build philosophy is simple. We produce products that are the best they can possibly be, with our costs and timelines being secondary to your experience. We make products people who love coffee, food, wine & design. People who happily invest in the integrity of products made perfectly.

Function, ergonomics and aesthetics is key to us, in this order. Made with the highest quality materials available, and produced within 0.1mm accuracy, there are few domestic espresso machines made this well in the world. As a result, design awards have flowed: The Australian International Design Mark in 2008, the Chicago Athenaeum's 'Good Design' in 2011, International Design Excellence Award finalist in 2009 and a German Design Council nomination for the German Design Awards in 2013.

We are 100% Australian owned, dedicated to delivering highly functioning products to the local and international market. All products are designed and developed, ground up by us. The founder, Craig Hiron, is a man who is passionate about helping people make a flat white or latte at home with the same quality as the best cafes they've visited globally. You won't find someone who is more driven about food, wine and coffee equally!

Covid19 Update - Auspost - 23.4.20

We are still dispatching orders on time, yet due to the COVID-19 there has been an insane amount of order volumes on the postal and courier networks, as such please allow up to an additional 5 business days from the Estimated Delivery Date as these networks are congested. In saying that our internal reports are showing 80% of order still arriving on time.

For international orders, the delays are a little greater, as flights out of Australia have significantly reduced and depending on the country, quarantine measure increased.

For those that want a little more information as to why the delays... Well... Due to several reasons such as increase volumes and social distancing rules at sorting facilities, as well as a large part of plane network grounded and most freight travelling via road with checkpoints between state borders.
