Two machine series, assembled by hand in Seattle, feature patented methods for preparing espresso and steaming milk. Slayer is the recipient of “Best New Product” awards from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (Slayer Espresso Single Group) and World of Coffee (Slayer Steam). We are an official SCA member with deep roots in coffee and continued efforts toward the advance of our industry.

This facility is our headquarters for all operations, including Production, Sales, Service, and Marketing. We frequently host trainings, tours, and community events, and would love to accommodate your visit whenever possible.
