Fiorenzato Colombina Espresso Machine
Unlike similar units in the high-end dual purpose single boiler category, this is the only model known to have an automatic water refill of the internal boiler. On other similar machines, the operator must always run water through the steam wand to insure that the internal boiler is filled – to avoid damage to the heating element due to lack of water. On the Fiorenzato Colombina, the auto water refill circuit monitors the water level in the boiler and refills it as necessary. If the water reservoir empties, the machine will shut the power to the heating element. Therefore, this machine can be left on ALL day (a surge suppressor is recommended).
A fully polished stainless steel body throughout makes this a prize for many homes. Full sized commercial handles (single spout and dual spout included) are used on the thermically-balanced grouphead for maximised temperature stability. Large removable drip tray for easy disposal and cleaning. Small rubber feet to maintain stability throughout. Single gauge on the front panel indicates pump pressure during espresso extraction (only).
Ergonomically designed steam knob with star shape. Easy-to-use lever on grouphead allows control over pre-infusion – down position is off, and up and forward position engages the pump to push water through the grouphead. A passive cup warmer tray on the top with a removable cover for refilling water reservoir (3 litres) – cups can still be placed on cup warmer as there is a separate cover is on top of tank. Water reservoir is easily removable for cleaning or refilling. Spring-activated low water shut-off switch protects the machine when the water reservoir is near empty – a feature not found on similar machines!
Multi-directional wand used for both hot water and steam. Three-way manual grouphead solenoid valve allows the quick removal of the portafilter handle once the espresso extraction is terminated (lever in down position completely). Dual purpose, single boiler machine – boiler has two modes (coffee or steam mode). In the coffee mode, you can extract espresso through the grouphead or get hot water from the wand for tea, hot chocolate, etc. In steam mode, you can continuously steam/froth your milk as the boiler automatically refills. this allows you to steam until the water reservoir empties. To go from steam mode to hot water/coffee temperature mode, you do need to run hot water through the steam wand to bring the temperature back down.
Copper boiler is 0.8 litres. High-wattage (1350 watt) heating element for continuous steaming power
Three thermostats for temperature control: coffee, steam, and safety. Powerful 41 watt ULKA vibration pump
