Italian Espresso Machines
Espresso machines are composed of many intricate parts. When one of these components breaks or fails to do its job, the espresso machine does not work correctly. Replacement parts must be located to restore the equipment to working condition.
Modern espresso machines are highly automated to save time and produce a consistent result. Restaurants and cafes that cater to the specialty coffee-drinking crowd will often have multi-group Italian-made equipment that can make two to four shots at once. The commercial espresso machine that is constantly in use is most likely to need replacement parts on occasion, solely due to the volume of drinks prepared each day. The elements most sought after for repairs or replacement are:
Replacing Italian Espresso Machine Parts
• Portafilters • Heating elements and related gaskets • Pressure gauges and pressurestats
• Built-in coffee grinders • Motorized pumps • Steam valves and wands • Flowmeters
In addition to the necessary parts that allow the automatic espresso machine to function, there are optional components that can be added to the machine. These include milk frothers and cream whippers that are used to make lattes and cappuccino drinks and pod adapters that allow the machine to handle coffee pods as well as beans. Water softeners may also be used in conjunction with an espresso machine, depending on the local water quality.
