Features & Benefits: Coffee
Commercial Size and Style Portafilter Handle
Some of the most crucial elements for producing high quality espresso are influenced by the Style, Size and Construction of the portafilter. Style: This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and is tamped (pressed) firmly into place. Size: The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area. Construction: The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, therefore producing a quality cup of espresso.
Commercial Brewing Group
This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity.
The Gaggia boiler system is very unique. It is designed of highly conductive aluminum with two heating elements. The heating elements are imbedded into the exterior sides of the boiler, providing even heat distribution. Having the highest wattage system available, incorporated into a low volume boiler (3.5 ounces) provides excellent temperature stability and will heat up quicker.
High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light
The Carezza has three rocker arm switches. The one on the top is the main power switch. The middle one is the steam switch that when turned on, will heat the boiler to steam temperature. The bottom switch operates the pump and is known as the brew switch. To start the brewing process just turn on the switch, wait until you have reached your desired volume and then turn of the switch. There is an indicator light that is illuminated whenever the boiler is up to operating temperature.
