The Little Guy is the ideal espresso system for home users who want professional quality. The Little Guy extracts cafe quality espresso shots and textures milk perfectly. The Home Barista Kit comes packaged in a beautiful presentation carry case with all you need to start brewing immediately. Included in the package are an instructional DVD and a quick start guide to help you achieve espresso perfection! The Little Guy will work on a narrow gas flame, requiring the heat source to be focused on the centre of the boiler. Electric stovetops will provide a reliable performance given the full coverage of heat over the boiler base. Careful consideration was given to the optimum heating solution for the Little Guy espresso maker, and induction was chosen due to its accuracy and efficiency.
The Little Guy induction top is an instrument specifically developed to allow The Little Guy to operate in an optimal performance. Why will The Little Guy work reliably on The Little Guy induction top and not necessarily on other induction tops? Over two years was spent working with electrical engineers and manufacturers to create an induction technology that will work with the Little Guy's solid 304 grade stainless steel boiler base. The Little Guy induction top uses a customized sensor system which engages with stainless steel where other induction technology won't. Five cooking settings, independent of The "Little Guy" setting, offer the use of many accoutrements formerly unusable on standard induction cook tops. The Little Guy induction top is versatile far beyond just making espresso with the Little Guy. We highly recommend the Little Guy induction top for the optimum heat source.
