Bar is a stylish and compact new bean-to-cup coffee speciality machine from Melitta that can deliver up to 150 espressos or 90 cappuccinos per hour. Measuring just 460mm high x 560mm wide x 500mm deep, Bar uses a large-format graphic display that provides information on how full the grounds container is and when the automatic cleaning programme is due to start. Features include two bean containers, a special chute for decaffeinated coffee, and a hot water outlet for teas. The HACCP-compliant machine uses a solid metal piston, a precision grinder, an aroma-enhancing micro-sieve and a system that chooses the best pressure for each type of coffee. There are six variant models, including the 1W-1G (with milk frother and one grinder), the 1C-2G (with steam, milk frother and two grinders) and the 1C-2G Barista (with steam and two grinders).
