The VA388 Black Eagle is the espresso machine for all of those who dedicate their lives to coffee; who study, research, and experiment every day to bring a meaningful coffee experience to the cup.
With gravimetric technology, the weight of the liquid extracted is measured directly in the cup. The data is therefore much more precise and, more importantly, is not affected by other factors, such as the shape of the filter, the tamping force on the coffee, the condition of the showerheads and more. The barista always has full control of each delivery, the quantity in the cup is always programmed and any difference between one delivery and the next is eliminated.
Total control of brewing time and liquid weight in the cup
Above the group head there is a display that allows baristas to monitor parameters such as brewing time and weight of the cup. This combined with Gravitech gives baristas the highest level of consistency and control over the coffee brewing process giving maximum precision.
Technology that ensures maximum temperature stability
T3 technology allows the barista to set three independent temperatures for the brewing group, the water infusion, and the steam. Giving control of the water supply's thermal accuracy that results in temperature stability and ultimately in a perfect espresso.
The VA388 “talks” to the barista and shares all the information provided by the T3 and gravimetric systems. The LED display gives the barista all data in real time to offer the customer the best espresso. The display for each group shows the barista the temperatures of the steam boilers, the coffee and the group, the delivery time and the amount of liquid in the cup.
