The Speedster is an extreme machine. With impeccable design and styling, large dual PID controlled boilers, precise pre-infusion and saturated group heads extremely precise temperature stability.

Technical Specifications:

  • Shot timer, installed in full view, right next to group.
  • Total consumed power (Watts) can be diminished by retracting an electric bridge at the centre solid state relay: whenever the heating element of the coffee boiler is activated, one of the steam boiler elements is now automatically de-activated. This brings down total wattage with 900 to 2.200Watt. (Standard max wattage is 3.100.) Yet hardly any effect can be noted in capacity. Heating up from cold will take a bit longer however. The bridge on the centre SSR is standard deleted on 115Volt machines.
  • Intuitive operation by lever. Group lever offers manual and automatic infusion.
  • Self-bleeding group.
  • One separate PID temperature controller for each boiler, displays in full easy view.
  • Energy saving Eco mode on each temperature controller, for nights and/or weekends.
  • Two hot water temperatures under one switch: pulling toggle switch up gives boiling hot water, toggle down supplies mixed cold&hot water.
  • Energy saving hot water system. Some cold is added to the hot water, so less heated water is needed. This mix provides a steady, non-spattering stream with the correct temperature to prepare Americanos.
  • Drip tray adjustable in height.
  • Stainless steel filter holders with KvdW POM handles.
  • Slow automatic infusion process, with step-less build-up of pressure to full extraction mode. This allows a finer grind, creating more surface, so a higher yield in the cup, less chance on channeling, preventing fines to travel down.
  • Progressive pre-infusion cylinder. Even with the pump running a spring loaded piston absorbs first rising pressure on coffee to allow for a longer initial saturation of the puck.
  • Wide choice in filter baskets, both sizes as types.
  • Rubber group gaskets remain flexible forever, do not become hard or brittle.
  • Membrane type group screen, very nice dispersion, less coffee sucked up by discharge of pressure at end of extraction. Remains clean longer.
  • Heat neutral polymer dispersion block, no loss of heat, no baking on of oils and fats, remains clean longer.
  • Heavily protected heating element (extra safety level probe, cut-out switches).
  • Entire frame in stainless steel only, powder coated in crackle black.
  • Large steam boiler capacity of 3.5ltr.
  • Large coffee boiler capacity, total of 2.1ltr.
