WHY DO WE LOVE SPEEDSTER ESPRESSO MACHINE?
- Completely new look with higher precision and control.
- The Steam Boiler is capable of pre-heating the water with equipped heat-exchanger.
- Fully new developed double boiler system in stainless steel.
- Shot timer, installed in full view, right next to group.
- Total consumed power (Watts) can be diminished by retracting an electric bridge at the centre solid state relay: whenever the heating element of the coffee boiler is activated, one of the steam boiler elements is now automatically de-activated.
- Intuitive operation by lever. Group lever offers manual and automatic infusion.
- Self-bleeding group.
- One separate PID temperature controller for each boiler, displays in full easy view.
- Energy saving Eco mode on each temperature controller
- Two hot water temperatures under one switch
- Energy saving hot water system. Some cold is added to the hot water, so less heated water is needed. This mix provides a steady, non-spattering stream with the correct temperature to prepare Americanos.
- Drip tray adjustable in height.
- Stainless steel filter holders
- Slow automatic infusion process, with step-less build-up of pressure to full extraction mode.
- Progressive pre-infusion cylinder. Even with the pump running a spring loaded piston absorbs first rising pressure on coffee to allow for a longer initial saturation of the puck.
- Wide choice in filter baskets, both sizes as types.
- Rubber group gaskets remain flexible forever, do not become hard or brittle.
- Membrane type group screen, very nice dispersion, less coffee sucked up by discharge of pressure at end of extraction. Remains clean longer.
- Heat neutral polymer dispersion block, no loss of heat, no baking on of oils and fats, remains clean longer.
