Italian Espresso Machines Are Built to Last
They are all designed with stainless-steel bodies, nickel-plated copper boilers and brass portafilters. These heavy-duty materials reduce the likelihood of oxidation and can withstand any type of bump, bang or other minor injury that may occur in a commercial kitchen. Most of these machines are available with either semi-automatic or fully automatic control panels to reduce the labor needed to make a shot of espresso. Some of these features include automatic coffee grinding and measuring, self-adjustable water levels and an electronic sensor to gauge the correct water temperature.
