Victoria Arduino Black Eagle Espresso Machine 3-Group
The Specialty MachineVA388 Black Eagle is the espresso machine for all those who dedicate their lives to coffee; who study, research and experiment every day to transfer a real coffee experience to the cup. This is the official espresso machine for the World Barista Championship 2015 to 2017
High technology for espresso coffee extractionSolid, consistent and precise. The new VA388 Black Eagle is much more than an espresso machine; it is an enhancement of each coffee blend and an expression of every barista.
The technology that ensures maximum temperature stability of the espresso machine.
In a professional coffee machine, temperature plays an extremely important role, as it strongly influences the quality of the espresso. A stable temperature provides an excellent and repeatable result.
But how? Again, through studies, research and experimentation, as well as working with the best baristas, we managed to find a solution that provides for the control of every single parameter. Thus was born T3, a technology that allows the barista to set three temperatures: for the brewing group, the water infusion and the steam.
What do you get? Control of the water supply’s thermal accuracy that results in temperature stability and ultimately in a perfect espresso. This also comes about due to an electronic system, with probes for temperature, pressure and PID, which manages each variable.
VA388 Black Eagle, the beginnings
A coffee machine for the specialty coffee shop, a machine that is stable, consistent and volumetric. In the continuous search for a constant result in the cup, many baristas have verified and demonstrated how the volumetric system allows them to obtain a significantly higher quality repeatable product compared to the manual system. The volumetric version of the VA388 Black Eagle addresses this need and goes beyond. We wanted to create a coffee machine for specialty baristas, making a volumetric model with the greatest temperature stability to help baristas in their daily work. We wanted the new machine to improve the relationship between customer and barista. The designer Viglino adopted a soft style, with more curves and asymmetrical elements, in a product 49 cm high.
GRAVITECH. The solution to obtain a perfect brew ratioWe did not want to offer a technology to “explore”, but a system that can instantly solve the problems of a coffee shop. Gravimetric technology is just that: it guarantees a perfect espresso coffee made with maximum precision by ensuring total control at all stages of extraction. The barista just has to set the weight of the liquid in the cup for each blend. Simple, right?
Today, gravimetric technology installed on the professional VA388 coffee machine means that each espresso coffee can be made with the same ratio, ensuring a consistent brew.
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.
* GRAVIMETRIC TECHNOLOGY.
Gravimetric technology gives users a higher level of consistency and control over coffee brewing with maximum precision.
Baristas can set the weight of ground coffee and liquid in the cup for each blend.
* GREAT CONSISTENCY.
THE ESPRESSO BREW RATIO.
The brew ratio is the relationship between the weight of ground coffee and the liquid in the cup.
There is no ideal brew ratio. It varies for each coffee and depends on the baristas goal. Today gravimetric technology in the VA388 Black Eagle means espresso can consistently
be made with the same brew ratio.
Brew ratio = grams of ground coffee / grams of coffee in the cup
THE NEW FORMULA FOR CONSISTENCY
1. Baristas set the weight of coffee in the cup.
2. Gravimetric technology in the VA388 weighs the cup and the volume of extracted liquid.
3. Software manages the entire coffee brewing process with maximum precision and barista can see the principal parameters on the group head display
In the last six months before the official launch of Gravitech four baristas tested this technology in their coffee shop world wide. Here the presentation: Colin Harmon (3fe – Dublin, Ireland), Miki Suzuki (Maruyama Coffee – Tokyo, Japan), Oskar Garberg (Johan&Nistrom – Stockholm, Sweden) and Ross Brown (Browns of Brockley – London, United Kingdom). They worked with the VA388 BE Gravitech and in these videos we show you field test results.
