In 2016, 1st-line pressed ACS, the manufacturer, long and hard to replace the plastic tubes with stainless steel tubes. In fact, we refused to order additional machines until this change was made. This was not to say that the plastic tubes which are better insulators and are easier to replace, were bad, but we thought why not have stainless tubes with a machine in this price range!

Starting in June 2016, 1st-line will carry the Vesuvius Version 2 machines with the stainless upgrade of the internal tubing from plastic as well as some other upgrades: bottomless portafilter added, new stainless sensor on the steam boiler, and steam boiler safety valve. Look on our upgrades tab!

The Vesuvius by Ambiente Espresso (also known as Elcor, ACS, or M&G) is one of the world's first prosumer, computer-controlled double boiler espresso machine with an E61 group and is one of the espresso machines closest to repeating that of the results of a lever espresso machine.

How? You can program 7 different pressure profiles during the espresso extraction. For example, start off with a light pre-infusion of 3-4 bar for 5 seconds, then ramp up to 11 bar for 4 seconds, then the remaining pressure profiles can diminish the pressure. One can also do the reverse.

The Vesuvius has its water reservoir hidden inside the left side panel. Unlike many other espresso machines, no need to refill from the top where cupboards get in the way or where the cups on the cup warmer tray need to be removed.
Features:
  • HX on/off option: Allows you to choose whether you want your coffee boiler be connected to the HX's steam boiler or get water directly from pump. Helps with temperature stability.
  • E61 commercial grouphead: With lever action activation of the espresso extraction.
  • Dot matrix touch display: For programming the PID temperature as well as the pump pressure profiles.
  • Celsius or Fahrenheit programming: Through the touchpad.
  • Dual stainless steel boilers: Insulated for power preservation and heat retention.
  • LED heating lights: For the brew and steam boilers.
  • Power management system: To control 110-120 voltage regulation to each boiler.
  • Built in programmable timer:
  • Five pre-set 7 step pressure profiles: You can change the pump pressure profile up to 7 times within the espresso extraction.
  • Low water alarm:
  • Steam and hot water wands: Multi-directional, No burn.
  • Large 1.7 liter pull-out drip tray: Can be removed for easy cleaning.
  • 3 liter water reservoir: Accessed through the left side panel.
  • Electronic switch: Makes it easy to change from reservoir to plumbed mode or vice-versa.
  • Adjustable feet: To lower or raise the machine.
  • Easy access to drain the boilers.
  • FG304 gear pump and speed-controllable motor unit:
  • PID temperature controller: For both coffee and steam boilers.
  • Accessories included: Single spout portafilter with single cup basket, Double spout portafilter with two cup basket, blank basket for backflushing, braided hose for connection to water line (in plumbed in mode), and drain hose for draining drip tray.

Review: I'm a wholesale roaster soI wanted this machine in order to use it to pull shots with my blends and imitate various other machines my customers use. Let me start by saying I am someone who values function over form. I can admit when I see a Slayer or Speedster (Speedo?) espresso machine that they are attractive machines. However, all I care about is what's in the cup after the shot is pulled. So here I am with an e61 borg cube / steam punk love child. Shipping- the machine was packed in a wooden... More details
