The Vesuvius is a beautiful pressure profiling home espresso machine with stainless steel boilers. Its high polish stainless steel exterior immediately catches your eye. Along with the stainless steel exterior, it comes by default, with beautiful wood-accented accessories and accents. These accessories even include a stainless steel tamper and a bottomless or naked portafilter, for free!
The Vesuvius will become the centerpiece of your kitchen, not only for its looks but for its abilities. A built-in seven-day timer gets your espresso machine ready for your next excellent beverage! You won't have to call in the electrician either - the Vesuvius plugs right into any normal US 15-amp outlet in your kitchen.
Stainless Steel Dual Boilers & Tubing
Internally, the Vesuvius has insulated dual boilers made of stainless steel. The stainless steel dual boilers have easy-access boiler drains for service and storage. The stainless steel dual boilers aren't the only thing that will last you a lifetime. All stainless steel internal tubing is a major plus! Not only will the stainless steel tubing prevent scale, but also condensation. Dry steam (lack of condensation) will help you make beautiful latte art with perfect micro-foam!
5 Pressure Profiling Settings
There are 5 pre-set pressure profiles, controlled by the touchscreen located above the hot water wand. Each profile has seven steps where you can set pressure at that point in your shot. A major plus to pressure profiling is full control over pre-infusion. Pre-infusion is the act of applying lower pressure, usually at the beginning of pulling your espresso and under 4-bar. This pre-infusion can help reduce fines migration and channeling. If you're buying quality coffee - pressure profiling will help you get the best out of your coffees! One more thing we like to try is longer shots, at lower pressures, to see what effect it has on our coffees. Experimenting with pressure and flow is much easier on a pressure profiling machine!
Direct Plumb or Reservoir
Switch between direct plumb or the reservoir with one switch. You're never stuck with one water source! The three-liter tank, located on the left side of the machine is much easier to fill. Most home espresso machine fills from the rear - making it a little difficult when under your cabinets. The Vesuvius is also equipped with a low-water alarm so you'll always know when to fill the reservoir.
No-Burn Joystick Arms
It's super easy to use the Vesuvius espresso machine. Pressure profiling might give you ultimate control over your espresso, but what about steam? The Vesuvius has smooth joystick controls accented by beautiful wood. They aren't just for looks! The no-burn steam arm, as well as hot water wand, make it super easy to get high-power steam in an instance!
