The Vibiemme Domobar Super Digital now has pressure profiling, so you’ll be able to control the brew pressure (flow of water). It also has a new digital touch display to use the pressure profiling as well as other settings. This machine operates on 110 Volts.
The Vibiemme Domobar Super Analogic can operate using a water tank/reservoir or can be directly plumbed to a water line. The espresso machine comes with a stainless steel braided hose to plumb the machine into the water line.
In comparison to the Vibiemme Domobar Super Electronic Digital, this version features manual operation instead of electronic operation through the digital display. For example, starting the machine up as well as preparing coffee involve manually lifting the lever instead of selecting icons, although the settings being changed will appear on the digital display.
This machine features dual copper boilers, one for espresso extraction, and one for steam, each controlled by PID. The boiler for water is 0.5 liters, and the boiler for steam is 2 liters. You can pull shots and froth milk at the same time.
An E61 thermosiphonic circulation grouphead is 58 mm, and is made in chromed brass. It’s constantly heated with circulating water, and it has a manual lever to the right for coffee dispensing. A lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch that allows you to do pre-infusion of your coffee puck prior to pulling your shot. (Please note that true pre-infusion requires the direct water connection whereby the water pressure from the waterline creates that pressure.)
Machine features a 3.5-inch digital touch display that has:
Pressure profiling: An exciting new upgrade to the VBM Domobar Super Digital! You will have the opportunity to control the brew pressure through control over water flow when you are extracting your espresso shot. Moreover, this is done on the digital touch display by choosing the extraction curve for espresso. 10 profiles are available for selection.
Programmable switch on/off times: You can tell the VBM Domobar Super when to turn on in the morning and when to shut off at night.
Water tank level sensor: Located on top of the water tank. You will see an LED light when it is time to refill the tank.
ECO Mode: Use this to decrease the espresso machine’s temperature when idle to save energy. After 2 hours of not using the machine, the shutdown symbol will show up on the display.
Additional settings: Select your ideal espresso dispensing temperatures, check the under or over-extraction, and access various quick-start functions. Additionally, check the meter sessions, intercepting any faults or alerts.
Machine comes with a manual, a plastic tamper, a coffee scoop, a group brush, and single, double, and blind filter baskets.
ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressure-stat or the wiring inside.
WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as lime-scale.
DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.
