The Black Eagle VA 388 is well suited for those looking to more better define the taste of their coffee focusing on specific temperatures. The Black Eagle attracts specialty coffee bars who are serving single origin coffees or high volume houses, where temperature stability is a priority.
Like the Aurelia Wave T3, Black Eagle utilizes Nuova Simonelli's T3, three step heating process for temperature precision even during high use circumstances.
Black Eagle is available in two dosing styles: They are volumetric and gravimetric. Volumetric measures dosing by amount of water and the Gravimetric model measures dose by weight in the cup.
Low profile with beautiful exposed groups and design, the VA33 is a refined and elegant machine including the delicately curved feet. Notably sturdy in weight, the Black Eagle is designed to be a lasting investment.
For operation and programming there is a main digital display with brewing timers at each group. For product evaluation and information screens with shot timers at each group. Black Eagle comes standard with cool touch wands. If you would like the option of frothing wands, you may want to consider the Nuova Simonelli’s Aurelia Wave T3 or Victoria Arduino’s Eagle One which will offer you two heating as well as two frothing selections.
Maintenance expense for either the Gravimetric or Volumetric Dosing models is like any traditional espresso machine model. The steam wands on Nuova Simonelli and Victoria Arduino machines for most requires rebuilding only once a year. You may incur additional expense when replacing scales if ever needed but it is an electronic part that is not effected by normal wear n' tear. It is however a sensitive device and can be easily damaged.
