The espresso machine that lets you explore

Discover the unlimited possibilities of espresso with this robust espresso machine. Create the taste you love.

Dual, smart temperature sensors

Enjoy an authentic-tasting espresso, every time. This is achieved by the two temperature sensors working together to maintain optimal temperature throughout the brew process.

Even tamping with the portafilter

The commercial quality portafilter has a flat base for level and uniform tamping. How? By having recessed spouts to create a flat base. Its 58mm diameter helps to maintain optimal heat.

Sleek and compact design

The stylish espresso machine has looks as well as performance. The sturdy metal housing makes it sustainable and its compact design means it fits nicely on your counter. Enhance your kitchen space.

1 or 2 shots? Easy dose selector

It’s simple to prepare a single or double shot at the touch of a button. You can programme to your preferred shot size and enjoy a cup whenever you like.

Espresso machine for beginners or experts

Choose from two wall basket sizes. Double wall baskets help give consistent results, ideal for beginners. Or, choose single wall baskets for greater control and full-bodied shots.

Get creative with the steam wand

Your Espresso machine also contains a steam wand to deliver steam or “texture” the milk directly in the pitcher. Perfect to create rich foam or warm milk for cappucinos or lattes, or even dispense water for teas or Americanos.

Enjoy your coffee break

Feel like a pro with the espresso machine that brings dual smart temperature sensor technology to your home. Enjoy every step and taste the difference.

Achieve the ultimate performance

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.

Taste a world of coffee

Which one is your favourite? A fruity Tanzanian coffee? A floral Costa Rican coffee? Indulge your passion with an espresso machine to extract all the flavour in your beans.

Your guide to espresso-based drinks

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.

Espresso machine facts

  • Making espresso is called ‘pulling’ a shot, because of the lever on early machines
  • ‘Espresso’ means ‘forced out’ as hot water is forced through tightly-packed coffee
  • Espresso is so important in Italy that the price is regulated to ensure it’s accessible
  • Brewing espresso takes under 30 seconds - meaning it’s fast and beautiful
  • Espresso doesn’t take a certain type of bean; it’s a way of making the coffee
  • An espresso often contains 50 mg of caffeine per shot: half the average cup of coffee
