Features of the Expobar Office Pulser Espresso Machine
The Expobar Office Pulser espresso machine offers superior heat stability utilizing brass that has been chrome-plated. Maintaining a heated temperature at a consistent level is central to producing high quality espresso. The portafilter sits inside a brew group constructed of brass that has been plated with chrome. The very popular and essential thermal siphon is vital in circulating water in a consistent manner to enable it to remain hot at all times. You never need to run a “blank shot” through to determine if the water is heated.
The boiler is made of all copper and can hold 1.8 liters of water. The system uses an internal heat exchanger that keeps the brewing water and the stored water separated. This allows the flexibility of dispensing hot water whenever the need arises, while being able to brew and steam at the same time. Users will find this especially useful when entertaining a gathering of friends and family or in those cases when this espresso machine is used in a commercial setting.
The three-way solenoid valve is another great characteristic of Expobar Office Pulser espresso machines. It relieves the pressure on the water when the brew switch has been turned off. This is important for two reasons. First, it dries the coffee out so it won’t drip and, secondly, it makes it easier to knock the coffee from the portafilter. The water is then deposited into a drip tray.
Being that you never want to use a cold cup to hold that wonderful espresso liquid, it is a delightful feature that this machine provides a cup warmer. It can actually hold up to 14 cups of espresso. The heat used to warm the cups comes from the “left over” (known as residual) heat from the boiler. It is recycled, as it were.
This model also provides a steam wand and hot water dispenser. Having a hot water dispenser is a great way to heat up cups or offer hot water for a drink of tea. Both the hot water dispensing wand and the steam wand are high enough and long enough to be able to pivot in any direction for maximum ease of use.
The controls on the Expobar Office Pulser espresso machine are easy to understand and use without any assistance from an instructional manual. You simply turn on the switch to the main power and the boiler will begin to fill with water and warm up. There is a temperature “ready” light and when it goes off, that is your signal to start the brewing process.
This model of espresso machine serves a very functional purpose. It offers stainless steel housing and can fit easily under a cabinet with a height of 16 inches. It is only 9.5 inches in width.
Users have attested to the fact that this machine has a relatively low cost considering its top-of-the-line construction and effective design. Its accessories include a portafilter made with brass and plated with chrome, a tamper, a 7-gram coffee scoop, and both single and double shot filter baskets.
