The flagship La Spaziale S40 espresso machine is digitally controlled and programmed via a service card that allows settings to be personalised. It controls brew cycles, records usage and flags up the need for maintenance via a centralised LED display that controls the boiler temperature, warns if coffee grinds fall below optimum, and lets operators know when the water filter needs replacing.
The S40 is available as a semi- or fully-automatic machine with two, three or four group heads, each with separate electronic control. It has a stylish, polished stainless-steel front with contrasting side panels, an economy setting and a power boost facility.
A programmable milk frother with automatic temperature control is an optional extra that combines the benefits of a bean-to-cup machine with the quality of traditionally-made espresso.
