The charm of expertise
Precise and reliable, it is much more than a simple espresso coffee machine and gives an extra touch to the barista. It is a stable, consistent, and volumetric machine. Fit for specialty coffee shops. In the continuous research for a consistent result in the cup, many baristas tested and confirmed how much the volumetric system is better in achieving a constant product compared to the manual mode. The volumetric system of the Black Eagle ultimately responds to these needs. We wanted to create a machine for specialty baristas: We made it volumetric with maximum temperature stability that helps the barista in their everyday job. Our goal was to create the best relationship between barista and customer. The architect Viglino designed it with a delicate approach, with more curves and asymmetrical elements, making the product 49 centimeters high.
Black Eagle and World Barista Championship. The future continues.
Victoria Arduino is always ready for new challenges, just like the World Barista Championship that since 2015 chose the Black Eagle to be the official machine for the competition. Seattle, Dublin, Amsterdam, Boston. A special VA388 Black Eagle for every edition of the WBC that rewards every barista that makes history with an extraordinary cup of coffee.
In a coffee machine, the temperature has a vital role because it strongly influences the quality of the espresso coffee. A stable temperature guarantees consistent and excellent results. But how? Even in this case, after applied researches and experiments in collaboration with exceptional baristas, we were able to find a solution that lets the user control every single parameter. That is how T3 is born, a technology that allows the user to set three temperatures: brewing, water infusion, and steam. What is the result? Accuracy control of the dispensed water means stable temperature and a high-quality result in the cup. All this is also thanks to an electronic system composed of temperature, PID, and pressure probes.
The TFT display, with a rotary switch menu, permits the barista to have full control of the machine. Every group has its display situated right above it and provides the user information about various data like the steam, coffee and group temperatures, brewing times, and amount of liquid in the cup.
