7. EKV 6600.0 café profi coffee machine

Whether as a café, espresso, late macchiato or simply with foamed milk – the type of coffee enjoyed is a matter of personal taste. It’s a fact that the coffee bean brew has been the national beverage of the European population since the beginning of the 19th century. Most people nowadays associate drinking coffee with experiencing a unique flavour. The aroma and the diversity of selected coffee beans will tempt you to a completely new culture of enjoyment. The sensuous enjoyment of coffee hence expresses a personal awareness of life.

Control unit and coffee dispenser

The smart electronic system regulates complex brewing processes and the clear optical display guides users through all of the new coffee machine programs, hence making operating and programming the machine child's play, even for inexperienced coffee makers. The various settings, such as setting the brewing temperature, pre-brewing time, volume of coffee beans to be ground and water hardness provide the new product with all that it takes to develop individual flavours. The new EKV 6600.0M coffee machine enables you to experience the special flavour of coffee specialities such as espresso, latte macchiato, cappuccino and lungo.

7.1.3Structure and functioning of a fully-automatic coffee machine

Operating the built-in fully-automatic coffee machines is quite simple since they are operated from the front. They are ready to use in no time at all – it’s all so easy. The panel opens very easily when the bar handle is pressed. The water tank which is filled from the front, the coffee bean box and the main switch are all located behind the panel.

All of the functions of the fully-automatic coffee machine can be set on the control panel. The brewing unit and the adjusting knob for the grinding setting are located behind the service flap.

The height and the general depth of the coffee dispenser can be adjusted at the bottom. The AromaControl knob is used to adjust how strong the coffee is when it is poured out. The collecting bowl collects anything that overflows or drips and is used to deposit the cups. The jet can be used for hot water, for steam to froth milk or for warming up beverages.

7.1.5Steam appliances, semi-automatic, fully-automatic and pad machines

Numerous different systems for “coffee and espresso machines“ are available on the market. The different methods of making coffee applied by the steam appliances and the semi-automatic, fullyautomatic and pad machines are described below.

Steam appliances

Water is heated up in a water tank for this standard type of espresso machine. Pressure builds up when the water begins to boil. This pressure forces hot water through a sieve filled with espresso powder. Disadvantage: the water that makes contact with the espresso power is very hot. This releases bitter substances into the espresso, making it bitter and unenjoyable.

Portafilters /semi-automatic machines

With so-called semi-automatic machines or portafilter appliances a lot is automated, but not everything. Espresso powder must be filled into the portafilter of the machine. Only then is the sieve put into the machine. Water is automatically portioned with a pump at a temperature of more than 98°C, heated up and forced through the espresso powder at high pressure. Semi-automatic machines need to be cleaned manually every time they are used, as oils contained in the espresso powder will otherwise be deposited in the machine. They will become rancid with time and spoil the taste of espresso.

Fully-automatic machine

Everything happens quite automatically here at the press of a button! Coffee powder is automatically ground, apportioned and filled into the sieve (brewing chamber). The hot water is then forced through the sieve and the coffee or espresso will be ready. The sieve will clean itself.

Pad machines

So-called pad machines are coffee machines that make coffee in cup-size portions. Coffee powder is put into the machine as pre-filled pads. The advantage of this type of machine: no portioning is required, since the pad that is put into the machine has already been filled with the right quantity of powder. Disadvantage: the ground coffee in the pre-filled pads loses its aroma quickly if it is stored for any length of time.

7.1.6Keeping coffee hot

Coffee should not be kept hot on the hotplate of coffee machines or on a warmer. The reason: the heat will cause the coffee to re-draw. This means that water will evaporate, resulting in the evaporation of the fine coffee aroma. Coffee will not only lose its flavour; it will also taste bitter very quickly.

7.1.7Where can I get the freshest coffee?

Coffee bought at the small roasteries found in almost any larger town is freshest. These roasteries generally sell high-quality beans which are roasted gently for a long time.

7.1.8What is the difference between coffee and espresso?

Espresso and coffee are made from the same bean but the roasting times are different. Espresso is roasted for longer than coffee. The result: espresso is tastier and has a stronger coffee flavour with a lower acid content. Classic espresso generally comprises a mixture of Arabica and Robusta beans.

However, what distinguishes espresso and coffee most is the way they are made. Espresso is not made in filter paper; it is made in a metal sieve. Within 10 to 12 seconds for automatic coffee machines and within 25 to 35 seconds for espresso machines used on a cooker hotplate, water heated up to 95°C is forced through this sieve. This means that the espresso powder only makes brief contact with the hot water. All of the flavouring but only a little caffeine and few bitter substances are dissolved in the powder. This is why an espresso, which is considered to be a black, particularly strong beverage, only has half as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Section 7 – Page 9

7.1.9How can I recognise a good espresso?

Blend

Espresso experts swear by espresso blends which not only contain expensive Arabica beans, but also comprise a 20% to 30% proportion of Robusta beans. This lends espresso a full flavour and a strong aroma. The proportion of Robusta beans is also vital for the espresso crema. The high content of ethereal oils in this bean makes the crema especially tasty and creamy. When buying, consumers should make sure that the espresso has a robusta bean content of at least 20%. It will then have the typical tart flavour and a super crema. The beans can be blended in specialised retail stores according to personal preference.

Grinding setting

Espresso powder should not be too coarsely ground. The reason: the water would not make sufficient contact with the powder for the flavours and aromas to develop properly. Espresso beans ground at setting one or two are ideal.

Crema

What is also important for a good espresso is the ”crema“, i.e. the foam on top of espresso. It should be a hazelnut brown colour and as thick as possible. A spoon of sugar will stay on top of a good crema for two to three seconds and will only then submerge.

The crema is so important because it functions like a lid to protect the espresso. Precious aromas and flavours do not evaporate so quickly. Instead they are contained in the espresso by the crema.

Temperature

A ready-made espresso should not be served colder than 80°C, as flavours and aromas will otherwise not be able to develop their full potential. This is why connoisseurs drink their espresso quickly in two or three sips as soon as it is served. This is how to get the most out of an espresso.

7.1.10 Initial operation

Before you enjoy your first coffee, open up the control panel with the bar handle and fill up the water tank located behind it with a max. of 1.7 litres of water. The water filter enclosed may also be used. A max. of 300 g of coffee beans must then also be filled into the bean box. Switch on the appliance at the main switch and close the control panel. The clear text display will indicate “deaerate”. The system must now be deaerated (see Section 7.1.11).

Genuine fully-automatic two-cup coffee machine

Thanks to its professional brewing unit the built-in coffee machine is able to make two cups of coffee at once. This saves time, especially when numerous guests are being catered for.

7.1.13 Adjusting filling quantities to cup sizes

Households have different sizes of cups for coffee and for espresso. The fill-up quantity can be adjusted quickly to the respective cup size so that a cup is filled up with just the right amount. Simply place a coffee cup or an espresso cup under the coffee dispenser and press the button for espresso until the right quantity is in the cup. After this, each time the “espresso“ button is pressed an espresso cup will be filled with the same quantity, until a new setting is made. This setting can naturally also be made for the “coffee long” and “coffee” buttons.
