Superb home espresso, latte, cappuccino Dual boiler coffee machine. Very easy to use E61 coffee machine with hot water and steam valves. Near commercial steam and hot water capability
E61 style espresso machine
Manufactured by ACS Advanced Coffee Solutions - Elcor, Napoli, Italy
can be programmed via 7 segment pressure / time steps per “profile” . 5 profiles can be stored
you could have a simple program to for e.g. have 2 bars - 10 seconds, 8.5 bars - 60 seconds.(obviously you will manually end befor 60 seconds!!) you can use this profile as you would a standard e61 machine and end the shot once your desired volume of coffee has been achieved.
you can then experiment with more advanced profiles once you have “dialled in” your beans
Machine has been plumbed in via everpure claris ultra water filter. Can easily be plumbed in or used via water tank. hoses included as per picture.
with this machine the tank is still used even when plumbed in, but in this case the tank is automatically filled as required. this is similar to other machines such as the Decent where pressure is always controlled by the machine pump and sensors as opposed to an older style e61 machine where pre infusion pressure is via water line pressure.
I currently have this and a lever coffee machine at home and have been told we do not have space for the 2 machines, hence the reluctant sale. :-)
This is my hobby, I am not a dealer but will try to answer any questions you may have
I do not have the original crate to ship this in and therefor would like to have it collected where I can demonstrate the machine to the new owner,.
Please ask prior to bidding - I would deliver it personally and demonstrate for petrol money lets say up to 80 miles of Ilkeston (Derby / Nottingham)
If required I will package i up and send via courier, a quick search is showing £60 via UPS but I would prefer not to do this!!
collection would be from our house in ilkeston - Trowel end of ilkeston, Derbyshire. 10 minutes from J25 or J26 M1
this is also advertised on coffee forum so may end early if no bids have been received
please ask if i could add extra photos or answer any questions
I will quote 7 days despatch but could be same day depending on where you are etc
If you want to concentrate most of the things you’ve always wanted to have on your coffee maker, the Vesuvius is the one you are looking for. The Vesuvius is the result of two years of development and collaboration and is currently the machine “prosumer” more innovative that the market can offer.
Ability to control the infusion pressure by creating a curve formed by 7 control points. For example, we can emulate the profile of a traditional lever machine by setting standard parameters; 4 seconds at 2 bars, 10 seconds at 12 bars, 6 seconds at 10 bars, 4 seconds at 8 bars…
5 storable profiles
ECO mode configurable on both boilers or only on the services one, completely configurable.
Touch screen display that allows you to view all the parameters of the machine.

DISCOVERING ACS VESUVIUS
ACS Vesuvius is a double boiler espresso coffee machine that can be placed in the Prosumer segment and can bring the gourmet coffee experience directly to your kitchen. The luxurious exterior in stainless steel and wooden inserts and the expertly crafted interior offer quality, beauty, and reliability.
ACS Vesuvius features a hand-made external body that stands out from other coffee machines for simplicity and taste. The vertical lines and the precious solid wood handles combined with a reflective stainless-steel surface create a minimal and elegant look obtained only through the most meticulous design. A very particular feature of the ACS Vesuvius is the absence of knobs, gauges, switches that usually clutter the outside of most coffee machines. ACS Vesuvius has been specially designed to make the presence of the buttons obsolete. The touchscreen display located on the front of the machine may appear complex at first glance but the use is very intuitive. The display interface is customizable in color and contrast. The display shows the day, the time, the temperature of the brew group, the pump pressure and the temperature of the steam boiler, the filling level in the water tank and the selected pressure profile.
ACS VESUVIUS FEATURES
ACS Vesuvius has a system for regulating the temperature of the boiler and the steam boiler through the digital display. ACS Vesuvius allows the possibility to manage the steam and supply functions simultaneously thanks to the double boiler system. The boilers are made of stainless steel with an additional layer of insulation designed not to disperse the heat. Using the touchscreen display, users can adjust the temperatures for each individual boiler. Maintenance and descaling operations are facilitated by integrated drains easily accessible by users. The coffee boiler contains about 0.8 liters while the steam boiler has a capacity of 1.5 liters.
All internal pipes are made of stainless steel for the prevention of scale and condensation. In this case, dry steam and the absence of condensation contribute to creating the conditions for obtaining wonderful latte art with perfect foam.
The main functionality of the ACS Vesuvius is the ability to control the extraction pressure in a complex way through the advanced pressure profiling system. Pressure profiling is easily accessible via the device’s digital touchscreen. Through simple steps users can build and save a maximum of 5 profile settings with the possibility of programming 7 pressure levels within each profile. Each of the 7 stages can be uniquely programmed for pressure setting and duration (in seconds). This function is also very useful to activate the pre-infusion or the possibility of exerting a lower pressure (below 4 bar) at the beginning of the coffee extraction
The advanced pressure profiling system of ACS Vesuvius is managed with the support of the FG304 magnetic gear pump capable of operating reliably within a pressure range from 2 to 12 bar. The pump is powered directly by the tank and this avoids the user the need to reduce the inlet pressure when connected to the water network. The transition from the tank to the water supply takes place with a single switch. The three-liter tank, located on the left side of the machine, is much easier to fill. ACS Vesuvius is also equipped with a low water alarm that warns the user when it is necessary to fill the tank.
