In the early 1990’s, espresso machine engineer Ennio Berti resigns from one of Italy’s major espresso machine manufacturing companies.
He believes the world is ready for a coffee revolution - a commercial quality domestic espresso machine. Starting at the very end of the process (the perfect cup of coffee), Ennio works back to create the ultimate espresso machine. Everything about it is meticulously redesigned.
The boiler construction is built with a lead free brass end plate to increase thermal retention, and then an insulated thermal boiler wrap for protection against copper oxidation and ultimate heat stability therefore consuming less power. The thermosyphon system layout is completely re-configured. Cool touch steam and hot water wands are incorporated.
While the competition reduce their production costs with less expensive parts, and cutting corners, Ennio's machine is built with commercial grade components regardless of cost. He creates a visually stunning machine that soon becomes a classic.
• Built in every way to replicate the commercial espresso machine experience by utilising the very best in traditional machine technology.
• Starting at the very end of the process (the perfect espresso coffee), the engineers work in reverse to create the ultimate espresso machine.
• The boiler capacity of 1.8 litres has been matched to the thermosyphon system allowing the balance of the espresso machine and the ability to texture perfect milk, optimizing perfect espresso extraction of 92 degrees, without delay.
• The Giotto PID V3 is a visually stunning machine. It’s build quality never compromised. Regarded by coffee lovers, worldwide as a classic icon.
