Fiorenzato La Bricoletta Elegance Espresso Machine
A clear winner for the espresso enthusiasts and for all low-volume coffee shops (up to 200 cups per day)!This Bricoletta is designed with a water tank or direct water connection with a rotary pump for a very competitive price! The Bricoletta sports a very solid, thick gauge stainless steel frame which is overshadowed by its one-of-a-kind polished, stainless steel body.
Beautifully designed and polished stainless steel body
The little lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds
The heat exchanger allows you to brew and steam at the same time (not recommended on any heat exchange machine with under a 5 liter boiler) or immediately after each other (recommended)
2.2 l water tank removable from the top for easy cleaning, with rechargeable water softener to reduce limestone dregs.
Gicar brand brain unit is one of the top notch brain units available. It helps regulate the water level in the boiler so that there is enough water kept over the heating element. When the heating element is exposed to air, it can become damaged.
Rugged stainless steel frame for longevity - we sell a lot of machines, and we found the Bricoletta to have one of the best frames for its class in the business
Industry known E61 grouphead provides exceptional espresso extractions - the Faema E61 grouphead has hot water from the heat exchanger pass through within the grouphead as opposed to just heat transfer through metal attached to the boiler
Professional stainless steel braided hose to directly connect to a water line - not the cheaper teflon plastic tube
Drain hose for drip tray to allow water waste directly into your drain
Rubber feet adjustable to maintain proper and level position
Boiler pressure gauge properly positioned for easy reading on front panel - this gauge allows you know when the machine is ready for brewing. However, once warmed up, it can make espresso after espresso until the water tanks runs out.
Copper boiler durable for commercial applications and placed horizontally for even heat distribution to cup warmer on top. In addition, the lower half of the side and back panels remain cool.
UPGRADED FEATURE: Multi-directional steam wand and hot water wand for ability to move forward, back, right, and left (not shown).
Four hole steam tip provides powerful steaming performance for large quantities of milk. Optional 2 hole tip available for lower volumes of milk. This optional tip does take a little longer to froth your milk, but is is the best tip to make that perfect microfroth. Hands down!
Non-compression steam and hot water valves - operators of the Fiorenzato Bricoletta only need stop the knobs on the valves once the steam or hot water stops exiting the wand. In other words, the knobs should never be turned to the point where they stop.
Passive stainless steel cup warmer - cups can take up to 2 hours to heat on top of any machine

Boiler bleeder valve (a.k.a. vacuum breaker valve) prevents vapor lock and allows the machine to be placed on a timer. If placing machine on a timer, please make sure to plug in the timer first, then a surge suppressor, and then the machine as timers do cause small surges that can affect the electronics of any espresso machine.
