Taking its name from the famous stratovolcano that destroyed the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. Vesuvius is a pressure profiling, dual boiler machine that redefines your home brewing experience. This machine offers unparalleled control to the home barista through the stainless steel boilers, a FG304 Gear pump, dot matrix touch screen control and multi-phase profiling. It is impossible to discuss the internals of this machine without calling attention to the exterior. Wrapped entirely in mirror finish stainless steel, the Vesuvius is characterised by a clean aesthetic with tasteful wooden accents on the brew switch, portafilter, steam and hot water levers.
The gear pump has a speed controllable motor unit that allows you to adjust brew pressure and program up to five different profiles that you can use while brewing. The profiles have seven phases each that allows you to set a pressure between 2 and 12 bar and adjusted in 0.2 bar increments. The stainless steel construction under the hood helps the boilers to resist corrosion as well as the ultimate Gicar PID that allows you to control, monitor and adjust each boiler individually.
This unique design has practicality in mind. A height of 16.33" means the machine will fit under most standard cabinets and a 3L water reservoir that actually pulls out of the left side of the machine. This means you don't need to move the machine when you need to refill it. Alternatively you can opt to plumb the machine directly to your water mains, this water is pumped into the water reservoir instead of the brew boiler so your line pressure won't impact your brew pressure. If you choose not to plumb the machine your Dot Matrix will provide you with a readout that monitors the amount of water left in the reservoir.
The Vesuvius can be programmed up to two unique on and off times per day. This allows you to create a unique schedule for your machine that incorporates both weekdays and weekends so it will always be ready when you are. There are also a number of energy saving options that can be selected to reduce the heat of one of both of the boilers after a set period of inactivity.
The nominal tamper size for this machine is 58mm, however you will get the best fit in your machine's basket by purchasing a 58.55mm tamper.
