    The Mirage is a single boiler espresso machine that uses the traditional thermo-siphon system to heat the groups.  Brew temperature control is provided by restrictors, either static or adjustable, located at the top end of the thermo-siphon system.

    The Spirit is an espresso machine consisting of a mult-boiler structure or a boiler for each coffee group and one for the steam boiler.  Spirit's features include:

  • the latest technology for brew temperature stability
  • a unique pre-infusion system, similar to the lever group machines, ensuring pressure builds slowly in the coffee bed thus preventing channelling and maximising crema
