The company has selected the coffee machines belonging to S9 series which are recognized for their efficiency and high performance.
S9 La Spaziale: efficiency and high performance
La Spaziale S9 series is inheriting the outstanding reputation of the well known S5 which has been successfully on the market for 7 years now. The S9 coffee machines offer a renewed body aesthetics and maintain avant-garde functions and technical features.
The most important aspect of these coffee machines is the electronic boiler temperature regulation, that is to say the electronic temperature control which is set directly on the control-panel, through a led display visualizing the delivery temperature at any time. The precise and sensitive adjustment of the operating temperature of the machine is essential when you want to grant an optimal and constant result in the cup with any coffee blend used.
The machines belonging to S9 series can be equipped also with some optional functions which increase their efficiency, thus meeting the different requirements of the professional operators. For those who use different coffee blends, for example, the S9 allows to control and set the temperature of each group in a different and independent way (ITC). Another function available is an additional steam wand with built-in sensor (MAT) for the automatic milk emulsion with temperature adjustment. Furthermore, La Spaziale has developed for these models an automatic system to set a service scheduled maintenance program, such as for example the wear control for the group-heads to service and the control of water softening or of softener cartridge replacement: all these service functions are programmable on the machine through an external display.
Here are briefly some of the features of the S9 series:
- Electronic with automatic dosing setting (EK version
- Electronic boiler temperature control
- Boiler temperature indicated by led display
- Automatic operating temperature boost function
- Control of malfunction alarms.
