Introducing the Black Eagle Maverick, our most intelligent and user-friendly coffee machine to date.High technology for espresso coffee extraction
Solid, precise and gravimetric. The new VA388 Black Eagle Gravitech is much more than an espresso machine; it is an enhancement of each coffee blend and an expression of every barista
Total control of brewing time and liquid weight in the cup
Gravitech gives users a higher level of consistency and control over coffee brewing with maximum precision. Baristas can set the weight of ground coffee and liquid in the cup for each blend. The display group shows the principal parameters: brewing time and weight in the cup.
The innovative system that prevents burns
Thermal insulation guarantees the barista’s safety; and not only that, but better and easier cleaning and therefore greater hygiene. The new “Cool-Touch” thermally insulated wand avoids annoying burns and can speed up cleaning the espresso machine.
All the espresso machine’s information displayed in an LED
The VA388 “talks” to the barista and shares all the information provided by the T3 and gravimetric systems. The TFT display gives the barista all data in real time to offer the customer the best espresso. The display for each group shows the barista the temperatures of the steam boilers, the coffee and the group, the delivery time and the amount of liquid in the cup
Here we will take you through our journey, what inspired the Maverick concept and how we brought our creation to life. We’ll take you through the key stages of the machine’s development, from the inside to the outside, before touching on some conversations with the baristas, those Mavericks that have turned the humble cup of coffee into something beyond a form of art.
GRAVITECH. The solution to obtain a perfect brew ratio
We did not want to offer a technology to “explore”, but a system that can instantly solve the problems of a coffee shop. Gravimetric technology is just that: it guarantees a perfect espresso coffee made with maximum precision by ensuring total control at all stages of extraction. The barista just has to set the weight of the liquid in the cup for each blend. Simple, right?
Today, gravimetric technology installed on the professional VA388 coffee machine means that each espresso coffee can be made with the same ratio, ensuring a consistent brew.
With gravimetric technology, the weight of the liquid extracted is measured directly in the cup. The data is therefore much more precise and, more importantly, is not affected by other factors, such as the shape of the filter, the tamping force on the coffee, the condition of the showerheads and more. The barista always has full control of each delivery, the quantity in the cup is always programmed and any difference between one delivery and the next is eliminated.
