The Black Eagle by Victoria Arduino is a precision espresso machine offering two very different operating styles. Select between volumetric dosing which offers digital programming for roasts profiled by water volume or the new unique gravimetric dosing technology for roasts profiled by shot extraction weight. Also, known in pre-production as the VA388, the Black Eagle features precision temperature control, referred to as T3 technology. T3 technology was first introduced at the “World Barista Championship” (WBC) on Nuova Simonelli’s “Aurelia II T3″. The Aurelia II T3 is often confused with the Aurelia II and Aurelia II Digit however, the Aurelia II T3 espresso machine is about giving the barista or operator the ability to dial in or set brewing temperatures. For years, baristas have struggled with temperatures swings often experienced with traditional espresso machines. These temperature variances are caused by several different factors, in which many can be corrected manually by the barista, however these variances are challenging when consistency of product is desired. The T3 technology was designed to aid the barista by simply eliminating brewing temperature fluctuations. The Aurelia T3 and now, Black Eagle with T3 technology are unique not only because they offer temperature control but control is available on individual groups. This means unique coffee houses specializing in the traditional espresso experience may profile and offer more than one coffee roast.
