General info



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.


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.


The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.


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

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.
4.number of drinks


For machines which accept coffee capsules/pods, each one can create a different drink, including teas and hot chocolates. More types of drink available gives you a greater range of choice.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously

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.
