Dual Boilers
Separate boilers eliminate the wait single-boiler machines
require when switching between frothing and brewing. Boiler
heating elements never touch water: they are located on the
outside of the boiler for superb brew temperature consistency
and burnout-resistance. Quick heating boilers reach operating
temperatures in at least 6 minutes.
Drip-free system with 3-Way solenoid valve
A 3-way solenoid valve virtually eliminates drips by instantly
reducing pressure in the brew group when the pump is
switched off. The filter holder can be removed immediately after
brewing without a messy spray of coffee grounds.
15 Bar pump
Self-priming water pump comfortably supplies the 9 bars of
pressure that perfect espresso demands.
