A more sustainable espresso machine for a healthier cup of coffee

We are currently developing a coffee machine with a new design based on three fundamental pillars: achieving the highest energy efficiency, using unleaded materials that do not leave traces of heavy metals and boosting connectivity to the Internet.

HIGH-ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Optimising the coffee-brewing process while aiming for a smaller environmental impact by minimising its carbon footprint and minimising the energy consumption it requires to work by up to a 50%.

CREATING A HEALTHIER COFFEE

By using new and innovative materials that are better for our health, like low-lead brass, the new Iberital machine almost completely avoids the presence of traces of heavy metals in beverages (reduction in levels of lead in the water below 0.05mg/l and in nickel below 0.1mg/l).

EASY OPERATION AND CONNECTIVITY VIA ITS ELECTRONIC INTERFACE

The machine provides for continuous monitoring and automated control in order to optimise functioning. The machine can be accessed remotely thanks to a telematics platform with Internet connection that enables the management of technical values and the interconnectivity between the barista, technical support, the coffee roaster, and so on. This connectivity also provides us with the opportunity to design new services, content and apps associated with the machine and the coffee experience in general, continuously improving our products.
