Illy’s semi-automatic Espresso machines have always been synonymous with style and compact design—perhaps that’s the reason why they are considered such hot property in the kitchen. They have got automated self-priming pumps, automated boiler temperature controls, and activation switches to control the pump. The activation switches are controlled by you—that’s what makes them semi-automatic. The start-up is really fast; Illy’s semi-automatic Espresso machines are known to produce coffee within two minutes and steam within four minutes, making them convenient for quick snack times. The performance of the semi-automatic Espresso machines depends on the range you choose from; the entry level machines in the sub 1000 USD range are the single boiler- dual use types which have thermostat controls to be set manually alternately for brewing coffee and for steaming.
Above the 1000 USD price point, you get a decent single boiler heat exchanger, which allows you the luxury of steaming and brewing at the same time. And if you are looking for performance and power, then go for the dual-boiler Espresso machines for satisfaction to your soul. Illy’s semi-automatic Espresso machines are a hit among coffee connoisseurs for the reason that they allow you to control the water flow for every shot of coffee that you make. Sturdy commercial components, superb styling designed with chic Italian touch, and wide range of retro-colors are what make the Illy’s Espresso machine an enthralling piece of art. Speaking of features, there’s lot more than just meets the eye. It holds a filter basket for the ground coffee aficionados, as well as E.S.E roasted coffee pods. All-metal housing and brass boiler designed for excellent heat retention, state-of-the-art electronics for perfect control of steam and coffee temperatures and automatic trouble-shooting functions is enough to sweep you completely off your feet.
Illy’s Super-automatic Espresso machines pack a lot of brains in the way they deliver water to your coffee. Just load the portafilter with coffee, place it in your automatic machine, and walk away after pressing the button. Typically, four pre-programmed brewing options—one short, two short, one normal and two normal, provide you the leisure of selecting the type of coffee you prefer, mild, medium or strong, in addition to selecting the coffee temperatures. Triple-insulated thermal containers keep the milk chilled and fresh for as long as eight hours at a stretch. For those who are recognizable with illy’s merchandise line be acquainted with that the blends are characterized with three premise colors. Dark-roast has black wrapping, medium-roast always features red wrapping, and decaffeinated is recognized by a green packaging.
The Super-automatic grinds the whole bean coffee and carries out all the dosing and brewing by itself, letting you free for carrying out your household work. Ultra- silent ceramic disc grinders with auto-stop grind your coffee beans to the perfect size for excellent taste. Additional attachments in some super-automatic models include three steam directions for simultaneous brewing of cappuccino and latte.
Premium versions of Illy’s Super-automatic Espresso machines offer separate nozzles for milk and coffee, as well as one touch cappuccino system for a hassle-free preparation of cappuccino or latte. Standard features that are a hallmark of all Illy super-automatic Espresso machines are easy-to-remove trays for easy cleaning, removable water tank with water-purifier attachments, and additional cup-warming trays.
Illy’s iperEspresso machines are the classic example of style marrying functionality. One touch convenient control, user-friendly LED lights for guiding the user, auto-frothing pannarello wand for the café-style quality, all come wrapped in a visually stunning durable ABS plastic body designed for you by Luca Trazzi, the world-renowned Italian architect. It intended to work only with Illy iperEspresso capsules, the iperEspresso machine allows no contact between the coffee and the machine, thus bringing across a clean system. The iperEspresso moves away from the conventional one-stage Espresso systems with its patented two-stage process designed to achieve perfection in brewing the richest coffee ever made.
