AURELIA II T3

Aurelia II T3 is the new espresso machine which guarantees superior performances in terms of accuracy, extraction quality, flexibility and consistency of results; for these benefits it is dedicated to the best professional baristas. The innovative T3 technology is at the base of its results, since it establishes new reference standards for temperature accuracy in water supply. Three different temperature parameters (water, group, steam) act on the brewing temperature on each group head; this means extreme accuracy, regardless of the workload or environmental conditions. The barista has always the maximum flexibility and control of his brewing.
