Vibiemme Domobar Super HX Manual Espresso Machine - Tank 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 the reservoir tank.

- 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.
- Removable 3.8 liter pour-over water reservoir.
- 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
- 1.8 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
- 41 watt vibratory pump ("vibe" pump) rated up to 15 bar with air valve bypass
- 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)
- 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.
- Warranty: One-year parts and labor provided by US distributor.

One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.
$53.00Hario's stainless steel water kettle, the V60 Buono, has been spotted popping up in coffee houses and the kitchens of baristas for some time now. A detailed search on the web will reveal, for the moment at least, that the Buono seems to be widely accepted as the most useful pouring kettle available. What makes this kettle so popular amongst pour-over enthusiasts? Several reasons stand out.
First, the thin pouring spout enables greater pouring precision as well as a slower, more consistent and controlled rate of pour, both of which are very helpful in achieving a precise, prolonged extraction.
Second, the stainless steel construction and large 1 liter capacity contribute toward keeping up the brew temperature for the duration of the entire brew cycle.
Third, the ergonomics involved in the design of the kettle help to make using it much easier. This may not seem like much, but if you're brewing large batches of coffee and pouring for three or more minutes per batch, doing several batches of coffee will quickly become a chore if your kettle doesn't cooperate with you.
Combine all of these facets with the fact that the Buono is manufactured by Hario, a very popular name in the coffee-brewing community, and the kettle's popularity is easily understood. For best results, combine the Buono with a V60 Dripper or Chemex to get a truly exceptional cup of coffee.
$2,865.00When it comes to serving freshly brewed coffee in a commercial setting, one key dilemma has continually arisen. How can a commercial, high volume coffee shop make quick, fresh coffee without sacrificing quality? The solution has been either (1) to slightly sacrifice quality by making a large amount of drip coffee every hour or so, or (2) to preserve quality but to slow down production and possibly lose a potential profit with single-cup brewing (V60, Chemex, French Press, etc.). The brewing process that the Bunn Trifecta is built upon could be the answer to this significant dilemma.
The Trifecta has been anxiously awaited by the coffee community since Starbucks bought the rights to the Clover brewing system and took it off the market. At a fraction of the price of the Clover, the Trifecta could be the next-generation coffee system. The process is incredibly simple and efficient without sacrificing quality. It can be compared to a Syphon Brewer in its use of total immersion, constant temperature, and agitation of the grounds.
First, the hot water completely saturates the freshly ground beans resulting in a French Press like immersion. This takes advantage of the total extraction of beans that can only take place in full immersion brewing systems.
Second, Air is injected into the pressurized chamber which agitates the grounds. This further enhances extraction by exciting the grounds and water as they interact with each other.
Third, at just the right time (before over-extraction can take place), the pressurized air presses the coffee through a metal filter into the waiting cup. Similar to the Aeropress, this added pressure further enhances the extraction process and ensures a full-bodied flavor in the coffee.
