If you are reading this, you probably noticed a warning within our espresso machine product descriptions. Here's why we have to put it there.
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.
