Built for those in search of the very best, the ES.1 brings Synesso creative control and temperature stability home.


We pioneered it

ES.1 delivers. With a fuzzy logic control system, our patent pending valve matrix measures temperature, flow rate, and pressure 10 times per second and adjusts the valves accordingly, allowing tight-tolerance control over extraction pressure, temperature, water flow, and volume.

State of the art user experience

Use it your way. Extract shots manually with our paddle actuator or use the touchscreen to deploy your own tried and true recipe. View graphed pressure & flow data, make tweaks, and adjust as needed.

Commercial stability in a home environment

Plug it in and go. Thanks to our valve matrix, the ES.1 eliminates the spikes in power usually associated with maintaining temperature and pressure in a machine this robust and stable.

Easy fill reservoir

No need to remove any parts. Access to the water reservoir is located on the top left of the machine where it’s easy to get to.

Built to last a lifetime

From the stainless steel boilers, to the updatable software platform, to the timeless design – the ES.1 is your new family heirloom.


Synesso was founded by experienced engineers and coffee experts. It remains core to our DNA and sets us apart in the industry. As such, it’s only natural that our new ES.1 was conceived by, engineered, and built by one of Synesso’s founding team members, Research and Development Engineer Eric Schaefer. 

Mentored and taught by Synesso founder Mark Barnett, Eric embodies what makes Synesso…Synesso. True attention to detail, subject matter expertise, ruthless focus on performance and practical solutions that deliver Synesso’s famously tough and reliable equipment. As we say here: no fuss, no gimmicks, just advanced, but common sense engineering and design that owners can trust to perform year after year. A feat that’s still not common in our industry. 


Performance traditionally only available in high-end commercial settings is now available everywhere!

Traditionally, pro-level features were not physically possible without commercial 220v power and particular mechanical components, but the ES.1 uses newly-invented, novel technology that allows it to deliver premium performance and functions using residential power. This sounds simple, but it’s taken years of research, developments and engineering patents to finally deliver a product that’s truly special. 





Family kitchen, roasting lab bar-top, corner mini café, mobile coffee-cart…you name it…the ES.1 fits it.

Enjoy the BPA-free, easy-access, front-facing water reservoir OR use the plumbed-in option. Going mobile? Just drop the water line in to a water source and off you go! The ES.1 creates its own water-line pressure so no need for complicated external solutions when going mobile. 

Water the way it should be: flexible and simple.

We’ve developed our logic, firmware, software, and UI internally for a machine then blends the mechanics of coffee-making with great software. No 3rd-party bolt-on software or control issues here!

This means the ES.1 is future-feature ready with a host of capabilities to come for users. While we’re not ready to share more features now, know that if you can dream it, the ES.1 is built from the ground up to do it!

Solid engineering meets future-ready architecture

The Synesso design philosophy also applies to software. Clean, simple, and to-the-point with everything you need and nothing you don’t. Enjoy an interface with parameters, extraction histories, pressure graphs, and helpful touches that make using the ES.1 a joy. 

No gimmicks, just what you need done well.

Tea deserves the same precision as espresso extraction and the ES.1 delivers.

Save tea-profiles based on temperature and dispense-volume for unique tea and other beverage needs.  The same temperature stability enjoyed at the group-head applies to the tea-spout with settings and precision between 165F-205F.

Goodbye tea-kettle. Hello Matcha lattes!

You don’t have to choose a machine model based on automatic or manual abilities. 

Control your pressure ramps manually OR set to auto-volumetric to let the ES.1 proprietary technology extract it perfectly every time.

You do you.
