Hello there all
Im starting this topic about my new ES2 prototype. Looking forward to hear what you all think of it.
It is only making coffee for some days now, I m still finding the machine out, but one thing is for sure, it is a whole step forward in comparison with the ES1.
It will be a wall-mount machine
The machine is making some serious espresso. But because of the hand lever it can also extract some beautiful light roasted coffee ( filter roasts) when you push at 4/5 bar with a 60 sec extraction on 84 degrees or soo, done that with Jeff from Caffenation Antwerp, worked beautiful.
It has a very small water tank / open boiler, only 150 cc or so. From cold it heats up in 6 minutes, and once it reaches the required temperature it is very stable. I m still tweaking it, but I ve got good hopes I will get to a 3 degrees temperature differential, when the lid is on top. It has an adjustable temperature regulator, which can be set a the required temp.
It uses only 500 watt.
Sorry, I still have to make the drip-tray..it will come
As you can see, it is a espresso-only machine. I will work out the steam mechanism from the ES1 later, maybe next year, but that will come as a loose component, which can fit next to the ES2
