General info

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
Generally, a larger capacity boiler with a higher wattage will be able to recover and replenish quicker. This is useful if making many coffees at once.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

42120cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
7.width

240mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
8.Uses ground coffee
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.

Components

1.Has a steam wand
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has a commercial steam wand
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
3.Has cup warmer
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Has integrated filter
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
2.Has a removable water tank
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.

Features

1.Has a pre-infusion function
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
2.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Expobar Office Semi-Automatic
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
