If you are reading this, you probably noticed a warning within our espresso machine product descriptions.
The warning has to do with a law called the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, known as “Proposition 65.” Proposition 65 is a far-reaching law that applies to any company that operates in California and sells products in California. Prop 65 requires us to post a warning on any product that contains, or may contain, any of more than 800 elements that the California Air Resources Board considers harmful. Since the espresso machines we sell have brass boilers, we have to comply with this law and post the warning on our website. The espresso machines we sell have been sold and used for years without documented harm.
Roasted Coffee—> Acrylamide can also form in some starchy foods during high-temperature cooking, such as frying, roasting, and baking. Acrylamide forms from sugars and an amino acid that are naturally in food; it does not come from food packaging or the environment.
