Lovingly craft your espresso by hand, since nothing tastes more delightful than a sweet espresso shot pulled with your own force. With a meticulous workflow, and control at every step, really get into the morning ritual. Caffeinate yourself with care, and enjoy the best tasting espresso you’ll create.

The Cafelat Robot is the solution to a fully manual espresso machine with no reliance on electricity. Rediscover the joy and simplicity of creating coffee with such daring complexity. With the ability to make espresso in any circumstance, the absence of electricity does not excuse a subpar coffee experience.


The Robot is Cafelat’s take on a manual espresso machine, with a cute, fresh design. Composed without any plastic or electronic components, you can be sure that this is a machine built to last a lifetime. Available in 4 different colours, it’s sure to complement any setup.

Cafelat was founded by Paul Pratt. Not a stranger to the coffee industry, the concept of Cafelat was concocted in 2008 with like minded individuals. The objective being accessories for both the home and professional barista. Having achieved the mission, Cafelat has grown into an industry name, with adding more and more products to explore the world of coffee.

The Cafelat Robot is their take on a manual espresso machine. Able to create cafe quality shots with a lot of force, this machine is designed for the espresso enthusiast. With removable spouts, you have the option of a bottomless shot or able to split your shot with ease for another friend to enjoy. With sturdy construction and extensive testing, it’s able to easily withstand 9 bars of pressure, and it’s not until 14 bars of pressure are applied that you risk breaking the robot.

With optional accessories, the Robot is truly customizable. From the paper filters for simplified cleanup, to the pressurized basket for older or improperly ground coffee, the perfect cup is achievable.

  • Completely manual operation
  • 2-in-1 portafilter (bottomless or spouted configurations)
  • Dose 12-18 grams of ground coffee
  • Yield of up to 45ml of espresso

Do I need to preheat the portafilter?

While the instructions do say that preheating is not necessary, we do recommend using some hot water to preheat to ensure that there’s temperature stability with lighter roasted coffees.

It says 58mm basket size. Does this mean it’s compatible with all 58mm tamps?

The Cafelat Robot is only compatible with the included tamp, or the Cafelat Robot Leveling Tamper.

What’s with the design of the handles?

The handles are designed to hold the included tamper for a clean and fun look to your work station. If you’re not a fan, there are the Cafelat Robot Mittens that you can install in the robot’s hands.
