The Coffee Grinder â€“ we have discussed coffee grinders here in the past and defined what a weight measuring coffee grinder can do. Now Iâ€™m going to tell you a seldom revealed astonishing fact; the quality of the coffee grinder directly affects the taste and crema of the espresso! For instance...
OverviewBack to Top
The Expobar Brewtus IV-R is one of the most advanced semi-automatic espresso machines available to the prosumer and light duty commercial market. This model features two independently operated boilers, one for brewing and the other for steaming. By having two boilers, result in greater brew temperature stability and superior steam pressure.
Exclusive to the Brewtus IV models, is a dedicated control switch that lets you deactivate the steam boiler and operate just the brew boiler. Exercising this option will significantly decrease heat-up time; in fact, the Brewtus IV-R can go from a cold start to 201 degrees, ideal brewing temperature, in about 15 minutes. If you decide that you want to froth some milk, flip the steam-boiler control switch and in approximately 10 minutes the steam boiler will be ready to steam. This smart system can lower operating costs and result in quicker warm-up time, since you won’t have to wait for the steam boiler to heat up.
Like its predecessor, the Brewtus IV-R features a Gicar PID (Proportional-Integral-Differential) controller and rotary pump. The PID control lets you monitor and adjust brew-boiler temperature to suit your preferences. Further contributing to the Brewtus’ heat stability is the chrome-plated brass E61 brew group with thermo siphon system. The Expobar Brewtus IV-R is equipped with a commercial rotary pump for smooth, quiet operation; it is recommended for high-end home use.
Note: The Expobar Brewtus IV-R does not have an on-board water reservoir. It is designed to be directly plumbed into a water line.
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.

AverageJo aswered:It's been a few weeks since I received my Expobar Brewtus IV-R. A manual in ENGLISH was included with my new machine, HOWEVER the downloadable manual that appears on the Whole Latte Love website in SPANISH was not included with my new machine. These are two different manuals. The one in English... more
Sanfam aswered:As the flow rate required by this machine is relatively low, you'd be ok with 1/4" hose feeding the machine.Â We supply all machines with a brass adapter that converts the 3/8" female BSP fitting to a more usable 3/8" male Flare fitting. With regard to water regulators, you'd be best setting the... more

brianw aswered:Is there an installation manual available in english that provides instructions to a plummer for maiking the water supply available? Maybe a drawing or picture of an installation? It seems that water supplies for ice makers, etc are in boxes behind the fridge and this will be a supply line behind... more
Maggie aswered:If you click on this link http://www.wholelattelove.com/policy_landing.cfm#shipping and scroll down just a bit, it will give you the information on how to drain the boiler. We definitely recommend draining the boiler before moving, especially if it is going to be stored for any length of time... more
James aswered:I tried these instructions and it didn't drain but a couple of ounces of water from the steam wand and steam head. And of course, this is a two tank machine, so these instructions would only drain the steam tank, not the coffee tank, at best. By the way, I am not storing at all - just moving, if... more
Maggie aswered:You can absolutely use a separate reservoir with no issues. Just make sure that, when you do plumb it in somewhere, that you install a water pressure regulator on the line going into the machine. It needs to be no more than 40 PSI.
A aswered:Daniel, Because commercial situations are all very unique, I would suggest calling Mark Jackson in our commercial sales department. He can be reached at 1-888-411-5282, option 1, then option 2.
mjackson aswered:Helen, Certainly there are many choices. I think since you have such a great machine you should consider a grinder that will compliment your selection. I would look at the Baratza Vario. It is an amazing grinder for the price. Next I would consider the Mazzer Mini. If you really want a special... more
A aswered:David, Any kind of filtered water will help prolong the life of a machine and help prevent against scale build up. I know a lot of people have plumbed machines into RO water systems and had no problems.
