If there’s a cooler looking coffee machine out there than the Kees Van Der Westen Speedster espresso machine I’d like to see it!
The distinctly automative look of the Kees Van Der Westen Speedster dates back to 2008, a redesign of a machine by the same name from 2001.
Kees Van Der Westen Speedster price and availability
The Kees Van Der Westen Speedster sells for 5,250 Euros. Colour options include stainless body parts in “Mirror 8” high gloss finish, or aluminum panels filled with black powder coating, both for no additional cost. The side panels can be made in any colour you want, for an additional 128 Euros.
There is no international network of distributors, so either you pick one up from the factory in The Netherlands, or you can talk to a few selected coffee makers to investigate a purchase. In Australia it is Toby’s Estate, Morgan’s Coffee, and Oomph Coffee.
