The online marketplace offers many variables of machines for you who are looking to buy the best espresso machine for your tastes and needs.
When you choose an espresso machine you are choosing a piece of design.
Often when you are looking around to make this purchase you are specifically looking for a modern coffee machine that with its design blends well with the rest of the appliances in your kitchen. This is an understandable choice because the role of a coffee machine in a kitchen is not only to prepare a perfect espresso coffee, but also to contribute to the decor of the kitchen.
First of all, therefore, it is important to know the types of offers that the coffee machine market makes available.
You can find different categories of espresso coffee machines
The proposals are essentially divided into manual machines, automatic machines and super automatic machines. You would think that a modern coffee machine would have to be one of the automatic or super automatic ones, but this is a common mistake.
In fact, a manual coffee machine, if well made according to the rules of art, can serenely enjoy an aesthetic that is not very retro and indeed tends towards more modern forms.
It is therefore necessary to make a few clarifications on the automatic and super-automatic categories, with respect to their design, so as not to fall into easy misunderstandings.
The design of each coffee machine must “dress” its functionality inside.
These categories of machines, where models often prepare espresso with an integrated coffee grinder, for example, try to make automated functionality their strong point. So by necessity the development of their design is a consequence of the functionality that the specific model will offer compared to its competitors. If, for example, I want to give the possibility of smelling the aroma of freshly ground coffee, I will have to include this function in my machine, and therefore my design will also have to “dress” this part of the machine.
The functions that we consider modern today may not be modern tomorrow.
But what we consider to be an important addition or technological innovation today, will most likely not be so tomorrow. So at the same time, the design that was developed to incorporate that functionality will age just as quickly. So, in an unfortunately short period of time, we may find ourselves with a machine that no longer has the sophisticated design we fell in love with.
It is similar to the principle of the old CD players: their whole design revolved around the technological innovation of the CD, and then once that innovation was overtaken by mp3 files, all the solutions invented to support the CD became vintage and almost useless.
Manual machines have internal mechanics that do not age
Choosing a professional manual coffee machine instead is something that goes beyond this form of aesthetic obsolescence, because its refined design is nothing more than the fruit of years of improvements and interventions of an artistic and artisanal nature, made by passionate studies that keep alive the original designs of the first models of espresso machines, and that truly give the best unmistakable aroma of coffee.
In the case of Pontevecchio machines, this uninterrupted path of passionate study and innovation has led to a perfect combination of sinuous lines, which hide behind so much simple beauty the traditional functionalities, which allow to prepare our favourite drink at 15 bar of pressure, keeping its precious organoleptic properties intact and its wonderful and perfect aroma.
In fact, today those who are looking for a modern coffee machine to enjoy at home coffee of the highest quality, can find what they are looking for in the offers of Pontevecchio parterre.
The design of Pontevecchio manual machines therefore does not risk aesthetic ageing
Our manual coffee machines are presented in three models, which are Export, Lusso I and Lusso II, and all of them offer sinuous lines and design that lead them to fulfil their objective of preparing the best of espresso coffees at home and to make your coffee corner in the kitchen even more beautiful and precious.
Whatever the use of your kitchen, Pontevecchio machines are what allows you to be satisfied with the performance and satisfied with the aesthetics. Whether it is a domestic kitchen for private or family use, whether it is that of a bed and breakfast that must offer the best in hospitality, these lever machines are the best choice.
The Export model is the most minimalist, totemic
The Pontevecchio espresso coffee machines Export model are those with the most minimalist slimmest design, which encloses in its lines essentiality and elegance. Its shape is statuesque and almost totemic, and it is precisely in its essentiality that its modernity emerges. Modern design by its very nature makes simplicity and lack of ornamentation one of its strong points.
Each Export model is completely mechanical, with a single mechanical body and a single electrical unit: simple, functional, elegant and performing. This model also comes in a wide variety of colours, making it even more modern: not only is the design driving this direction, but also the possibility of choosing very original colours.
The Lusso I model is more robust and present, monolithic
The Pontevecchio espresso coffee machines model Lusso I, on the other hand, have a design that is still modern but less slender, and instead more robust and reliable. This aesthetic is therefore less totemic and more monolithic, and the machine declares its presence in the kitchen with more personality. Like the Export model, this one is also completely mechanical, and has a single dispensing unit that ends elegantly with two metal spouts. There is an elegant pressure gauge on the front of the machine to check the water pressure and to check that it is working properly inside the boiler. This element is a contribution to the modern look of the machine, which therefore has a “talking” design, communicating with its user as it fulfils its primary role of preparing the best espresso coffee according to tradition and rule of art. Thanks to this feature it is possible to prepare coffee just when the water in the boiler has reached the optimum pressure.
The last two elements of this model that make it modern in design are the dual wands: one dedicated to steam and the other to hot water, both of which can be activated in real time. A modern design is not only pure aesthetic gratification, but also and above all utility.
This model is also offered in different colour variations: in this way its monolithic shape finds a harmonious setting in the kitchen that chooses to house this prestigious machine.
The Lusso II model adds even more features
The third model of Pontevecchio lever machines is the Lusso II, whose number stands for “two groups”. This model aesthetically takes the guidelines of the Lusso I model, enriching them and integrating new features.
Like its predecessors, this model is also fully mechanical, and therefore highly reliable, and has a double hotplate that makes it possible to prepare up to four espressos at the same time. Therefore, its solid design, dry in its lines and pleasant in its appearance, hides inside a very complicated network of brass pipes that are the beating heart of the machine and that guarantee unparalleled resistance to time.
The Lusso II model is the most suitable for bars and holiday farms
This model, more than the others, is perfectly suited to those catering establishments such as small bars or holiday farms that may sometimes need to make several espresso coffees at the same time.
In fact, this model is also available in different colour variants, so that it can fit harmoniously into the furnishing style of the kitchen or bar, enriching them and never imposing itself with its presence.
Choose a machine with a modern design, but above all one that doesn’t age.
In order to choose a modern coffee machine, it is therefore important to always turn to a historical and reliable company like Pontevecchio, which creates its models trying to respond to modern canons with its lines, but which has never forgotten the roots of the tradition of espresso coffee. This double attention has created and creates machines that are not only modern, but that remain modern with the passing of the years, because they are not afraid of technological evolution. The mechanics integrated in Pontevecchio lever coffee machines do not age, but rather improve, and therefore the design forms that contain them do not fear aging.
