This is a slick and sleek coffee machine that comes complete with special anniversary panels. The pre-heater assembly ensures a consistent 170°F water temperature when the water enters the coffee boiler. When the hot water exits the group, it is replaced with 170°F water to reduce temperature swings. The PID temperature controller uses a special algorithm to further prevent any fluctuations in temperature. The ruby flow restrictor further enhances temperature consistency during the process by reducing channeling and preventing water from leaving the coffee boiler’s saturated area.

The mechanical paddle on this machine uses a valve system, which allows a barista to use low pressure to saturate the coffee before applying the pressure of the entire 9 bars. This provides an extraction that is better balanced with reduced channeling and more control over the pre-infusion.
The dual boilers optimize the brewing of the espresso along with the steam production while the saturated groups offer state-of-the-art thermal stability. The digital display makes it easy for a barista to adjust the parameters of the machine while the water economizer controls the temperature of the tap water for rinsing.
