The Eileen line of presses was designed in honor of the great Eileen Gray - 1878-1976, Architect and designer of furniture and ornamental objects. The Eileen was built as a professional coffee maker, specifically designed to withstand the exacting conditions of busy bistros and cafés and restaurants. As a result, the Eileen coffee maker incorporates a number of new handling and safety features. The Eileen is equipped with a square, no slip santoprene coated handle for sure gripping, and the solid stainless steel body protects the glass from being bumped and knocked in a busy environment. Elegant design, and practicality all in one!!
