Introducing the Crossland Coffee CC1

Always on the lookout for new gear, we were excited by the prospect of a new entry-level machine being shepherded through development and into production by Bill Crossland, who previously designed the La Marzocco GS/3. Over the past year, we were lucky enough to play with different iterations of this machine, give general feedback on the basic functionality and beta test a final production model in our store for the past couple of months.

You know that we believe there’s a market for every machine, and while those operating in the upper echelons of espresso machine nirvana might find the CC1 a bit utilitarian, we love the fact that it effectively addresses some of the long term issues of machines in the under $1k class — namely, easily maintained temperature stability.

Watch as Bill gives a functional, spec-based overview of the new CC1, which is now available for pre-order.

  1. Hey guys

    This looks great…. I know you don’t ship tp Europe right now but do you know if or when it will be available in the uk?


    1. I’m not sure; I know Bill is focusing right now on launching in the US and don’t know what (if any) plans he has around international models. I’ll post if I hear anything.

  2. Looks like a slick machine, but I’m a little hesitant to purchase a machine that does not have a proven track record (like the Silvia). What will the warranty/service after the purchase be like (I live in Western Canada)?


  3. kat,

    just ordered this machine under order nbr 79368, is it possible to have it wired to 220v? thanks and this will be my first manual machine. when can i expect delivery?

    1. Hi Bert!

      We cannot change the wiring on this machine, unfortunately, as the CC1 was specifically converted and the wattage was changed to accommodate that. So sorry we can’t offer that to you.

      I have checked in with Bill to confirm that we are on track for shipping out this week; I will let you know if anything has changed.

  4. Are we able to see some shots pulled from this machine? Possibly comparing it to the Silvia as far as shot consistency goes and steaming? I am going to be making a purchase in the next couple weeks, and this would really be helpful as I’ve pretty much narrowed down my choices to these 2 machines with a Preciso grinder.

    1. We shot a crew review video last week that I will be posting this week — you will be able to see the shot and steaming, but we do not do a side by side comparison. Likely will do that later.

      1. Just saw the video up! Thanks!

        I think my decision has been made for me… For the price it seems this one over a PID’d Silvia is the way to go… You guys going to have a package price on this with a grinder and accessories by chance?

        1. You have the option to add a grinder and it comes with a cleaning supply accessory package free, but no packages right now on this model.

  5. Please, your opinion on this machine vs silvia w/ pid?…also it looks like on your web you get not only a free starter kit, but also a free bottomless portafilter…is this true??

    thank you,


    ps looking to buy by wednesday!

    1. It has more programming than the Silvia with PID; also has a different method for water delivery so you don’t run the risk of burning out the boiler if you’re not careful.

      Yes, it currently comes with a free starter kit and the bottomless PF; if you purchase a grinder at the same time, there is a $100 discount on your grinder, as well — the eligible grinders are listed on the product.

      Let me know if you have any other questions –
