At first glance, it’s not hard to see that the Sayer Espresso is a visionary's espresso machine. In 2007, a few accomplished industry professionals believed they could manufacture and design an espresso machine here in the U.S. that could extract better flavor than any other machine coming out of Italy. They accomplished both. There is a lot to say about the Slayer Espresso but we will break it down into two isolating points. One is the pre-brew system. This is the feature of the Slayer Espresso that makes it stand alone as a precision and elite profiling espresso machine. The other is that the Slayer espresso is externally and internally customizable in color and material, an important feature if you have an emotional vision about your coffee. The machine is programmable for consistency and ease of use. It also operates manually as a featuring platform for professional baristas. Like you and your business, the Slayer Espresso is innovative and stands alone. We hope you will take the time to reach out to your preferred local service professional or our Slayer coordinator here at the ESN. We would love to talk about your dreams and how the Slayer Espresso can help you achieve them.

Customizing Your Slayer
We always start with your vision; the little idea that’s only yours. After that, we get to work because there is a lot to think about when it comes to customizing your Slayer Espresso machine. We will help you maneuver through metal options, paint colors, wood accents and your design ideas. The options are almost limitless, so we hope you’ll put our ESN Slayer coordinators to work. We will remember your vision and your budget and do our best to make everything become a reality. Below you will find step-by-step instructions for customizing the Slayer Espresso machine. Begin by viewing the "Start Here" tab. For personal assistance contact the ESN at (509) 558-8081.
Start by selecting from one of the following three categories. The categories are: "Acrylic Window or Glass Body," "Advanced Customization," and "Classic Black." If you will be customizing either the interior of your machine (i.e. boiler and/or spar) and/or adding an acrylic window or glass body, select the "Acrylic Window or Glass Body" option. If you are not planning on customizing the interior and/or adding an acrylic window or glass body, but still want to customize exterior features of your machine, select "Advanced Customization." "Classic Black" is for those wishing to purchase the Slayer Espresso without customization.

Select this option if you wish to showcase the interior of your machine. This option allows you to customize both the exterior and/or interior of your machine.
- Acrylic Window and Glass
(See "Materials" Tabs)

Customizing Your Panels
If you have decided on "Advanced Customization" or "Acrylic Window or Glass Body," your next step would be to consider the back and side panels of your machine.
Back/Side Panels Color/Material I & II
For the body of your Slayer Espresso (back and side panels), please choose one from the following options:
- Customizing back AND side panels with the same color or material: Select an option from "Color/Material I" only: Leave the "Color/Material II" on the "No Thanks" option.
- Customizing back panel OR side panels only: Select an option from "Color/Material I" only. Leave the "Color/Material II" on the "No Thanks" option.
- Customizing back and side panels with different colors/materials: The ESN equipment selection process is set-up so that if you choose to customize your side panels differently from your back panel you will receive a discount on your second color/material choice. After selecting from Color/Material I, select from Color/Material II. Only options of a lesser price will be available to you. If you desire two types of the same option (powder coat in two colors or two different types of metal), select the same option in both Color/Material I and II.
After checkout, an ESN coordinator will contact you to help you personalize your selections.
Your Slayer Espresso machine can be painted, in almost any color, and on almost every part of the machine.
