The Sanremo Verona RS was the 2014 UK Barista Championship machine used by all the competitors.
The Sanremo Verona RS takes even bigger steps into temperature stability. Warm water feeds the larger, insulated PID controlled stainless steel boilers behind each group, plus the addition of PID controlled heaters in the group head metalwork. The result is temperature stability to +/- 0.2C guaranteeing impeccable temperature stability, perfect coffee extraction and greater efficiency.
Another great new feature of the Sanremo Verona RS is the inclusion of soft pre-infusion. Here, a two way valve allows the barista to programme for water to be pumped to the group head at 3 bar pressure, before ramping up to standard pump pressure (usually 9 bar). The inclusion of this additional control makes to the baristas ability to manage extraction outstanding.
The Sanremo Verona RS now has individual displays located over each group head. The displays provide information on espresso shot time as well as real time group temperature. The main machine display maintains its position on the right of the machine, but is now larger and offers the barista even more feedback. Information such as individual group boiler set temperature, steam boiler temp, water level, along with vital programming and management tools.
Aside from the technological advancements in the Sanremo Verona RS, there has also been enhancements to the build quality. Group head boilers have been enlarged and are now constructed from high grade stainless steel, giving an even more desirable finish. The copper pipework has been insulated for greater temperature stability and thermal efficiency.
The improvements made to create the Sanremo Verona RS has made this machine a serious competitor in the speciality coffee industry and should be considered the front runner in a high end coffee bar.
