OverviewBack to Top
The Expobar Brewtus IV is a dual boiler Commercial and prosumer espresso machine equipped with a vibration pump. Two copper boilers let this Expobar dedicate one exclusively to brewing and the other to steaming, frothing and dispensing hot water. New to the fourth generation of the Brewtus line is a dedicated switch that will allow you to turn off the steam boiler and operate with just the brew boiler. Doing so will result in quicker warm-up time as well as yield lower operating costs in the long run.
The Brewtus IV is also outfitted with a Gicar-build PID (Proportional-Integral-Differential) controller that will let you monitor and adjust brew boiler temperature. As with all Expobar machines, the Expobar Brewtus IV comes with a chrome-plated brass E-61 brew group that has been proven to excel at maintaining stable brewing temperature. For commercial-grade steaming and frothing capabilities, the Expobar Brewtus IV is a solid choice.
Please Note: Regulations for commercial use vary between states. Be aware of your local requirements. Machines carrying an NSF approval are labeled as such. Please visit our policies page for warranty information.
