With its distinctive design, its Italian flair and the unmistakable hissing and knocking, Schaerer Barista looks and feels like a classic portafilter espresso machine, but it has a secret. We made it so easy to handle it is almost entirely automatic, leaving you with the most pleasant part of the show: time for your customers.
Grinding and tamping are optimised for consistent top quality. The exact quantity of coffee released in the portafilter is automatically calculated, and a perfetto espresso is brewed every time. The machine has two separate grinders, one for each of the brewing units. The process is also automatic: beans are ground, powder is filled in, without coffee powder being lost, and tamped into the filter, and coffee is brewed and dispensed at the touch of a button.
Using Schaerer Barista is simple and intuitive, there is no need for specific skills to operate it like a pro. Everyone can be a barista. The automated operation only requires that the portafilter be inserted and removed, and grounds emptied, which also constitute the most scenic espresso-making gestures, typical of an Italian bar atmosphere. Milk foaming, another characteristic routine, is either manual or fully automated. This leaves the operator time to speak with the guests and to offer side orders such as a slice of cake or a croissant.
