Feature Details

Milk Container/Refrigeration

The Evolution 1-Step comes with a self-cleaning refrigerator that can store up to 6 liters of milk at a constant 41° Fahrenheit. The compressor refrigerator includes an integrated pump that is controlled electronically to deliver fast and precise doses of milk to the Evolution’s dispensing system for seamless brewing and frothing. Franke’s MilkSystem is also programmable, so you can choose to dispense steamed or frothed milk before, during or after the coffee. In addition, this Franke refrigerator has adjustable temperature control, and a level indicator to let you monitor its capacity.

Programming Options

All of the Evolution’s 6 programming buttons have multiple functions that can be accessed by pressing the “shift” key. With virtually unlimited programming options, this Franke espresso machine lets users customize the amount of coffee to be ground, amount of water to use, and frothing and steaming options as well. Plus, Franke’s integrated intelligent chip cards give users the ability to restore the machine to its optimum settings and correct computer errors without having to service the machine.

Grinder Capacity/Grind Settings

To maintain continuous brewing, the Evolution 1-Step comes with 2 low-noise precision burr grinders. Each of the Evolution’s see-through bean hoppers can hold more than 2.8 lbs of coffee, and allow you to monitor your bean levels without interrupting operation.

Cup Warmer

All of our Franke espresso machines feature a stainless steel cup warmer to increase temperature stability for each pour.

Steam Wand

If you prefer not to use the milksystem's automatic dispensing, Franke’s Autosteam system puts world-class frothing and steaming at your fingertips. The multi-directional stainless steel frothing wand has a built-in temperature probe to stop frothing when your milk temperature reaches 160oF, so you get fast, consistent drinks every time. With a precision steam wand and an independent hot water dispenser, you’re in full control of the Evolution’s hot water system and steaming potential.

Electrical Options

The Evolution 1-Step Standard comes with a 220v plug as well as a 110v plug for the included refrigeration unit.


Daily Maintenance

    • Franke designed the Evolution with easy maintenance in mind. To maintain the highest standards of cleanliness, follow the machine’s LCD commands for automatic cleaning and rinsing cycles. The integrated MilkSystem is also capable of automatic rinsing and cleaning, and can be programmed to rinse after each use or after an assigned period of time.
    • The dispensing head itself can be cleaned and removed easily, and on occasion you should remove it and wash it by hand or in the dishwasher.
    • In addition to the Evolution’s automated cleaning routine, it is important to wipe away milk residue from the manual frothing wand after use and briefly press the steam button to get rid of any milk that may have accumulated inside.
    • As part of your cleaning regiment, the 50-puck capacity dump box must be emptied when the LCD prompts you to do so. This, along with refilling your bean hoppers when empty, will ensure your machine is prepared for the next day's work.
  • At the end of each day, it is important to clean the MilkSystem using Urnex Rinza to remove residue. The brew group and other brewing components should also be cleaned daily using Urnex Cafiza tablets.

Periodic Maintenance

  • Although this machine is able to automatically rinse and clean the MilkSystem after each use, it is recommended that you clean away excess milk from the inside and outside of the included refrigerator on a regular basis.
  • The majority of periodic maintenance should be carried out by trained technicians. As outlined below, all major maintenance to keep your machine running in top shape can be covered by the Prevenative Maintenance plan.
