As we enter the final stretch of production tweaks for Stagg EKG, we’ve released a select few EKG prototypes into the wild. This gives us a chance to gain incredibly valuable feedback from both at home users and baristas on what they like, and what we can still improve upon. Although our La Marzocco user testing in Seattle is complete, you can still catch a sneak peek of EKG in Santa Cruz, or San Francisco at these cafes:

Verve Coffee Roasters, Santa Cruz, CA

If you are in Santa Cruz, Verve is currently testing our most recent prototype of Stagg EKG during their brewing classes.


Four Barrel, San Francisco, CA

Four Barrel is also putting an EKG through its paces here in San Francisco during their weekend shifts.


La Marzocco Flagship Store – Four Barrel guest roaster

Four Barrel was the guest roaster at the stunning La Marzocco store in Seattle. Four Barrel’s shift ended August 8th, so you’ll have to travel down south to Four Barrel HQ to catch EKG!


We’re incredibly thankful to have the opportunity to work with these cafes. Gathering user testing information from these roasters and baristas helps us understand how we can improve the overall user flow, durability, and special features for the optimal brewing experience.

If you’re in San Francisco or Santa Cruz – stop by these cafes and see if you can sneak a peek!
