Independent Boilers + Pressure Profiling
One-year parts & bench labor do to defective parts,
The new Vesuvius-SST (ASTV - All Stainless Tubing Version)) has all stainless-steel tubing. The Vesuvius by M&V is one of the world's first prosumer, computer-controlled espresso machine with an E61 group.
It delivers true pressure profiling via its FG304 gear pump and speed-controllable motor.
The Vesuvius is operated completely through its PID touch pad display, which informs you of the current temperatures of the boilers, the pressure, and if you are running it off the tank, the amount of water left. These machines all come inside a wooden crate and are bolted to the base of the crate. We then strap the crate to a pallet to ship them.
The Vesuvius has a unique placement for its water tank; the machine has the tank hidden behind the left side panel, which can be accessed by opening up a simple latch and tilting to the left on an angle making it easer to add water to the reservoir.
Under the hood, brewing is handled by an FG304 Gear Pump and dual stainless steel boilers. The brew boiler holds 0.8 liters of water with a 1,000 watt heating element, while the steam boiler holds 1.5 liters of water and has a 1,400 watt element. The stainless steel construction helps the boilers to resist corrosion and each boiler can be controlled individually with the PID. Dual boilers help to ensure temperature stability and allow for simultaneous brewing and steaming. Both the steam and hot water wand feature no-burn insulation to prevent accidental burns and the Vesuvius has a commercial style 3-hole steam tip for frothing milk.
The Vesuvius' pressure profiling capability can be attributed by the FG304 Gear Pump. This pump has a speed controllable motor unit that allows you to adjust brew pressure. You can program up to five different profiles that you can use while brewing. The profiles have seven phases each that can be set to a pressure between 2 and 12 bar and adjusted in 0.2 bar increments. When you find a profile that works best for the espresso coffee you're brewing, you can save it while still having four remaining profiles to program. You can also use the Gicar PID temperature controller to adjust and monitor brew temperature to your liking along with being able to program the temperature offset between the brew group and the brew boiler.
In addition to robust brewing options, the Vesuvius also boasts a wide array of quality of life features to seamlessly integrate it into your kitchen and your schedule. At 16.33" in height, the machine will fit under most standard cabinets. Unique to its design is the fact that the 3 liter water reservoir actually pulls out of the left side of the machine. . Alternatively you can opt to plumb the Vesuvius directly into your water line to avoid refilling it entirely. When plumbed, incoming water is pumped into the water reservoir instead of the brew boiler so your line pressure won't impact your brew pressure. If you choose not to plumb the machine, the Dot Matrix display will provide you with a readout that monitors that amount of water left in the reservoir
Depending on when you get up in the morning, or when you plan on enjoying an espresso., You can program up to 2 on and off times per day. This allows you create a schedule for your machine that incorporates both weekdays and weekends so it will always be ready when you are. There are also a number of energy saving options that can be selected to reduce the heat of one or both boilers after a set period of inactivity. You can also have the machine enter a standby mode or shut off entirely.
