With 15-bars of pump pressure, this super-automatic espresso machine's innovative brewing system allows for creating an infinite variety of coffee drinks from just one machine. Simply turning the dial either right or left changes the strength and consistency of coffee by either increasing or decreasing the water pressure moving through the grounds. The espresso maker automatically grinds the right amount of coffee, tamps, brews, and dispenses used grounds into an internal dregdrawer, all at the touch of a button. The Black and white touch screen technology is an exclusive innovation available for the Talea Touch. Thanks to its graphic display and icons, you can prepare coffee and your favorite drinks with minimal effort, in just a few minutes. Sensitive Touch Technology not only gives the machine it¿s up-to-date look, but it also makes it easier to use. The special icons give clear, instant details for each function. In addition, the espresso machine's adjustable built-in ceramic disc grinder provides a more even grind, allowing for perfect dosing and blending, plus it operates considerably quieter than stainless-steel grinders. The unit's OptiDose system has an adjustable 7- to 10-1/2-gram doser for regulating the amount of beans to grind per serving, and its aroma system injects hot water into ground coffee to maximize flavor extraction. Especially convenient if a guest wants decaffeinated espresso, the espresso machine comes with a pre-ground bypass doser. Simply pour the pre-ground decaffeinated or flavored coffee into the pre-ground coffee funnel without having to empty the beans in the grinder. The espresso machine also supplies a stainless-steel pannarello attachment for steaming milk or dispensing hot water, as well as a stainless-steel boiler system with rapid-steam technology, which means no waiting between frothing milk and brewing espresso.
