Unique to the Velasca Prestige is the ability to choose between one of three levels of pre-infusion to soak your grounds prior to extraction. Espresso: Classic Italian espresso, topped with rich crema with robust body and flavor. Espresso Lungo: A longer, lighter drink with more volume than a traditional espresso. Ideal for fans of American coffee. Ceramic Burr GrinderCeramic is the material of choice when you want precise grinding with minimal heat transfer.
Ceramic burrs last longer, and won't rust if any moisture gets into the bean hopper. The Velasca's grinder has 10 settings ranging from extra fine for crema rich espresso to coarser grinds ideal for lighter American style long coffees.
One-Touch Milk Drinks and Hot WaterThanks to the auto-frothing milk carafe, the Velasca Prestige can produce several milk specialties at the push of a button. The unique system froths milk twice before dispensing to ensure ideal temperature and texture. For easy and hygienic cleaning, the machine is equipped with a dedicated button to rinse the milk circuit after each use. For added simplicity, the carafe is dishwasher safe and can be stored in the refrigerator when not in use. To dispense hot water, the milk carafe can be replaced by a dedicated water spout that fits into the front of the machine.
Cappuccino: A three part drink consisting of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam. Baby Cappuccino: A 50/50 blend of 2oz of frothed milk and 2oz of espresso, perfect for after dinner indulgence.
Milk Foam: Frothed to perfection, ideal for doppios, hot cocoa, chai lattes, and other delicacies.
