The Little Guy | Stainless Steel Espresso System

The Little Guy Coffee Machine was created by the award-winning barista and serious coffee enthusiast, Craig Hiron. The inspiration behind it's design was to pay homage to and improve the world-famous Italian 'Atomic' stove-top coffee machine, invented by Giordano Robiatti in 1947.

After 4 years of research, design, testing, tooling and production - Craig and his team of high-level engineers and manufacturers first launched The Little Guy in 2005. First launched as the Otto Espresso Maker, Craig and the team re-branded to the 'The Little Guy' in 2013, purely for trademark purposes.

Made with the highest quality materials available, The Little Guy Coffee Machine is a true coffee lovers 'must-have', exampling the best aesthetic, function and ergonomics a stove-top espresso maker has to offer. Picking up numerous national and international design awards throughout the years, The Little Guy has generated much buzz in the coffee community.
