Hello All, We’re currently up to Order 670 which is over 400 machines shipped! That now puts us at 74% complete for batch 1. While we didn’t quite hit our goal of 80 machines last month, we did ship a record 77 units! We think we can hit over 80 this month, so that continues to be our goal to get all units out by July and straight into batch 2. Check out this behind the scenes timelapse video of Ross building an Argos! After this stage of building, the machine goes into quality control and testing which is the next video we’ll post this week. Video: Building an Espresso Machine | 5 Minute Time ..read more

Hello All, Really sorry for the much overdue email update! We’re currently up to Order 559 which roughly equates to 345 machines shipped! This puts us at 60% of the way through batch 1. While this may not sound encouraging, keep in mind that 41% of these units have shipped this year alone.  We’ve recently plotted some data to track warranty issues relative to units shipped as well as how many we’ve shipped per month.  The returns due to warranty issues tracks with the early issue of the steam manifold o-ring which has been addressed for several months now. If you haven’t run into any ..read more

Hello All, We’re currently up to Order 391 which roughly equates to 235 machines shipped! Throughout the last few months we’ve had a handful of machines that have had some issues come up during the QA. It’s taken us some time to resolve them, but we’ll be focusing on getting those out in the next week so that we’re shipping out units in order again. The past month has been a bit all over the place. A significant focus was placed on getting a better workflow established for repairs. Most of these were early units with small oversights that we’ve found ways to overcome in our latest assembly pra ..read more

Happy New Year! Things are going well despite some minor hiccups. We’ve now shipped 146 machines (~order #238). We’re still working on improvements to get a consistent weekly output but that should come soon. We have no known issues with the new LEDs which is a great sign thus far and a huge relief. A list has been put together of the people who ran into issues with the original LEDs and we will reach out to you all to see what your preferred method moving forward would be. We can either send you all 3 of the new style LEDs to swap in since they have a semi-transparent lens with colored LED i ..read more

Happy Holidays Everyone, Great news, we’re finally getting into a groove! Both of our full time hires started last week and we were able to get 21 machines out the door! Some end up shipping a little out of order if they get caught in QC but we’re up to 91 total machines shipped which equates to order 00164. We’re currently on track for 25 this week with several people out for the holidays and next week we should be up to 30. Staffing: All of our new hires have started and are picking things up quite quickly. Onboarding is a difficult process when there’s still so much to figure out and optimi ..read more

Hello All, Shipping Updates Unfortunately shipping has taken a hit the past few weeks while we work on some much needed growth. We’ve currently shipped 70 units, have 25 ready to be boxed, and 12 waiting on the new lights. While we were delayed with shipping due to hiring and organization efforts, we did however pre-build a huge stock of sub assemblies in preparation for our new lights. We currently have 75 boiler assemblies built and pressure checked, 50 boiler caps, 140 steam manifolds, 100 steam wands + valves, and 58 piston assemblies. Staffing: We’ve recognized the need and hired 3 full t ..read more

Hello All, Shipping Updates: We’ve currently shipped 41 units and have made some strategic changes moving forward. I was hesitant to send out the overseas units since there’s a lot more to get right with paperwork for customs but glad to say that those have all gone out.  Hardware Updates:  We’re always making small improvements to the Argos based on our own experiences and initial customer feedback.  Some springs would get a very thin layer of corrosion due to free irons on the part after processing (this is normal). We’ve started passivating all springs in house using citric a ..read more

Hello All, Shipping Updates We’re currently up to 31 units shipped! I was out last week which meant no machines shipped but progress was still made with QC. I’ve got 7 more machines on the bench being tested this morning. CE Cert The certification lab has finally finished verifying that all of our parts are in compliance with RoHS and REACH material requirements which is necessary to achieve CE certification. We’ve received the final documentation and will now start shipping internationally. This is a huge milestone that took 6 months to complete and we’re glad it’s out of the way! Patent Our ..read more

Hello All, We’re finally shipping again! Shipping Updates We’ve shipped 22 units and are starting to get into a groove! 32 more machines are already built and sitting on the shelf. A few units are being tested and checked for quality each day and shipped out as they’re completed. We’ve spent the past two weeks updating a lot of these previously assembled units to include our recent fixes for issues that were popping up after shipping. All shipped machines with these known issues have also been fixed and sent back to customers. So far, our updates seem to have resolved the prior problems that ..read more

  Hello All, I know it’s been difficult to remain patient while we sort all of this out but we would rather get as many anomalies sorted after the first round of shipments before continuing to send more units. The good news is that things are looking promising from here. Bumpy Roads While our new side panels have a much cleaner fit than the originals, they had a tight squeeze between the front and back covers. We’ve had some Argos owners contact us about a corner that would get pushed out from flush from time to time during regular use. After re-confirming with our drawings, our supplier ..read more
