One boiler for two functions: Hot water for brewing coffee and hot water for generating steam. Most household espresso machines including many fully automatic machines come with a single boiler. This means you need to wait for the temperature either to rise from the espresso status to steam for milk frothing or fall after you have finished steaming milk and want to brew your next espresso.
We’ve bundled a kit consisting of a stainless steel naked portafilter and stainless steel tamper that can be retrofitted on all our espresso machines should the Barista come alive in you. Available to purchase as the Barista PRO kit on our website.
