Notes
Kees van der Westen (Espressonistic Works B.V.) is perhaps, as David Schomer of Seattle's Espresso Vivace attests, the greatest espresso machine artisan in the world. Looking at their unique, chrome devises is like taking a carnival ride. They are rare machines (often only a hundred are produced of each line, such as the Mistral) and found only at places very serious, almost obsessive, about the aesthetics of good espresso. The Mistral line is now under La Marzocco, but these machines are truly more Kees van der Westen than La Marzocco.
