Vibiemme Domobar Super HX Manual Espresso Machine- 2011 Tank and Direct Connect Model
Known for its history, style, and incredible build quality, Vibiemme has become a coveted machine since its introduction to the U.S. The Italian company based out of Milano, was started by three executives from the legendary Faema company. These men brought along their expertise and patent for the famous E61 grouphead. This commercial size grouphead (named after the year of its invention) is best known for its heavy brass composition for superior temperature stability as well as its passive pre-infusion system. This version of the Domobar series is the Manual Super Heat Exchanger model with both the reservoir tank and the option to directly connect.

Kit Option 2 Includes:
- Vibiemme's exclusive and original E-61 grouphead provides an active flow of water from the grouphead to the heat exchanger in the boiler as well as pre-infusion.
- The Heat Exchanger allows you to brew and steaam milk simultaneously.
- Boiler and pump pressure gauges.
- Use as a stand alone reservoir model (2 L) or make a direct connection to plumb into a water line by simply moving the lever on the bottom of the machine
- Multi-directional steam and hot water wands.
- Large adjustable overpressure valve (OPV) which opens when there is too much pump pressure.
- Small lever on side of grouphead allows user to engage/disengage pump and three-way manual solenoid valve to start/stop espresso extraction
- 2.45 Liter Boiler Capacity
- Full size Parker pressurstat (rated as one of the best boiler pressure regulators) monitors boiler pressure (which directly correlates to the temperature)
- GICAR branded electronic water level control for internal boiler is located in lower right rear corner of machine where there is least heat build up
- Rotary vane pump and commercial-grade motor which are quieter than a vibration pump.
- Heavy vacuum breaker valve
- Power, heat and low water indicator lights.
- Low water level light in middle indicates when water level in water reservoir in rear is low
- Large stainless steel drip tray which can be easily (slides out with pull of handle) removed for cleaning. Grate stays on machine when pulling out drip tray so that it is one step to empty
- Manual three way valve below grouphead allows removal of portafilter handle from grouphead immediately after espresso extraction has terminated
- Three stage power switch allows user to fill internal boiler without sending power to the heating element (prevents damage upon initial start up).
- Before turning the steam nozzle, point the end of the steam wand into an empty container or point it towards the drip tray. This is to get rid of any water that might first come out when you turn on the steam wand.
- When dry steaming begins exiting the steam wand, you can turn it off. You are now ready to start steaming your milk.
- Do not fill your milk pitcher more than halfway full with cold milk
- Make sure the tip of the steam wand is fully submerged before you turn on the steam.
- After you begin steaming, you can raise the steam wand so that the tip is barely submerged. If the tip is submerged too much the milk will begin to squeal meaning it needs more aeration. If you bring the tip too far out you will hear a heavy chirping or sucking sound. This will result in big bubbles and a possible mess.
- You should aim for slight chirping up until the milk reaches room temperature. At that point you can submerge the tip of the wand to one side of the pitcher to create a swirling motion. Continue this until the steaming pitcher becomes too hot to the touch or a couple seconds after you have to take your hand off of the bottom or side (this should be around 140°).
- Professional grade brass portafilters - one portafilter with single spout and single filter basket and one portafilter with dual spout and double filter basket
- Blind filter basket for backflushing
- Plastic coffee scoop
- A cheap tamper (We recommend purchasing a 58 mm Prima Coffee Tamper from the drop down menu above)
- Ability to use the water reservoir or plumb the machine in.
- Heat Exchanger provides on-demand steaming.
- The manual lever has three positions: off, passive pre-infusion, and full pressure.
- E61 grouphead provides further temperature stability from its thermosyphon circulation and metal mass as well as pre-infusion.
- Premium interior components with the Gicar electronic water level control and the Parker pressurstat.
- Exposed E61 groupheads can burn if touched while brewing.
- Heat Exchanger units normally need a cooling flush before brewing
- Plain water backflushing should be done at least once a week. To backflush, use the portafilter's backflush disc. Take out your single or double basket and securely place the blank insert into the portafilter. To perform a plain water backflush, place the portafilter into the group head. Then raise the brew lever all the way up for 15 seconds, and then lower it. Water will forcefully discharge out of the bottom of the group into the drip tray; this is normal. Repeat three to five times.
- Backflush with detergent like Full Circle (see options above) once every fifty extractions.
- Direct water connection requirement: connection must be made to a cold water supply line only.
- Warranty: One Year Limited parts and labor warranty for manufacturer's defects. (Shipping costs excluded)

Compak is a company dedicated to quality and craft. Their newest endeavor is a line of espresso grinders that raises the bar on control and efficiency. Aptly named "Fresh" for its innovative design and functionality, these grinders were created from conversations with baristas around the world and from the experience of a company that has been around for over 50 years. The K-10 Fresh offers a number of innovative features including: the ability to pre-set the the dosing time for a single and double shot to within a tenth of a second, manual push-button doser that keeps time of amount dosed on the digital display, and a completely new dosing system, electronics and control system. Also, the electronic display shows the selected grinding point, a configurable warning to change the burrs, promotional message with your logo, shot counter, and multi-language display.
$48.62Tampers are as diverse as the baristas who use them. Our new tamper meets the needs of almost any barista, whether professionally trained or newly beginning. With its durable aluminum handle and wide, smooth top, the tamper is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably into the palm unlike other overly rounded handles which can press a little too tightly into the hand of the barista, or flat topped handles which can become uncomfortable after extended use.
The base of the Prima tamper is of a hefty 304 stainless steel design. This solid steel base combined with the light, detachable aluminum handle adds balanced weight to the tamper which helps aid the barista in providing an even tamp, shot after shot.
