It’s all about getting the best taste. The latest technology is combined with the traditional espresso method to make sure you savour every cup.
Authenticity for the taste of Italy
Beautiful espresso shots are delivered with the help of dual, smart sensors which monitor the water temperature throughout the brew process. They are guided by a smart controller to keep the hot water within the optimum espresso range.
1 or 2? Select your dose
The espresso machine dose selector makes it easy to make one or two shots at the touch of a button and can be programmed to your preferred shot size. Prepare 1 or 2 shots of espresso simultaneously with the 2-spout portafilter.
Rich crema on the top
To create that full-flavoured shot, low-pressure pre-infusion extracts slowly and steadily before the high pressure extraction. This is supported by the 15-bar Italian pump to give all the pressure needed for the desired crema.
Espresso: aka ‘short black’ made with a single shot in the small filter basket
Double espresso: a drink made with two shots of coffee in the large filter basket
Macchiato: a single or double espresso with a dollop of foam added
Flat white: a drink made with 1/3 espresso and 2/3 steamed milk
Cappuccino: a frothy drink made in thirds: 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 foam
Latte: a milky drink made with 1/3 espresso, 2/3 hot milk and a layer of foam
Americano: aka ‘long black’ made with hot water and your shot of espresso
Cafe mocha: a sweeter blend made of 1/6 cocoa, 1/3 espresso, 1/3 milk and 1/6 foam
Affogato: a dessert coffee made with a scoop of vanilla ice cream doused in espresso
What’s crema on the espresso?
The sign of a great espresso is the perfect crema. The crema is the aromatic caramel or rusty coloured froth that naturally appears on the top. How? It’s formed when air bubbles combine with the oils from the grounds and should be even and not too thin or thick.

- Brewing espresso takes under 30 seconds - meaning it’s fast and beautiful
