For baristas who prefer the speed and consistency of a fully automatic brewing center along with the precision of manual steaming and frothing, the Franke Evolution 2-Step is the perfect fit. Capable of brewing 90 double shots of espresso per hour, this machine is popular in cafes, casual and fine restaurants and hotels. Plus, the Evolution comes with free installation and training from certified technicians, as well as a comprehensive 1-Year Preventative Maintenance Program to replace worn parts and extend the life of your machine.
As its name implies, this Franke espresso machine can make a cappuccino or latte in just 2 easy steps. Step 1 is as simple as pressing a brew button for a single or double shot, and for step 2, just press the Autosteam button to activate the frothing wand. Since the Evolution 2-step brews at the touch of a button, even the most inexperienced users can make a cup of great espresso. However, learning the nuances of proper brewing, steaming, and frothing will necessitate more in depth training and practice regimens. Users can be directed to the following articles for detailed descriptions of the brewing and frothing processes, but hands-on training is a must for the best results.
The Evolution 2-step features an Autosteam system with an independent steam wand for precise and efficient frothing and steaming. Austosteam provides optimal steaming and frothing consistency, with a built-in temperature probe to automatically shut down when your milk reaches 160oF. The pivoting stainless steel frother will live up to the expectations of even the most experienced barista, but is easy enough to operate for novices.
6 dual functioning programmable buttons make this Franke espresso machine capable of producing any number of different coffee products. Accessing each button’s additional function is as simple as pressing the “shift” button, and the Evolution features an illuminated LCD that boldly displays each operation. Plus, Franke’s chip-card technology safeguards against data errors and allows the machine’s optimal settings to be restored at any time.
2 heavy-duty precision burr grinders provide nonstop performance, and with each hopper capable of holding 2.8 lbs of coffee, the Evolution can brew at its highest output without constant refills. Each hopper is made of strong, see-through plastic so users can check bean levels without disrupting operation.
Like our other Franke espresso machines, the Evolution 2-step features a stainless steel cup warmer to maximize temperature stability for each drink.
The Evolution 2-Step Standard comes with a 220v plug.

If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!
