The Gravitech version provides a readout of the weight of the espresso coffee or Pure Brew directly on the group display, thus enabling the barista to obtain high levels of consistency and control over the entire extraction process. “With Black Eagle Maverick we’ve introduced two important improvements to the gravimetric technology”, explains Claudio Cingolani, Simonelli Group Chief Engineer. “the drip-tray is weight-sensitive, and it automatically and instantaneously senses one or more changes in weight due to the positioning of the cups or containers. Every recipe based on espresso or Pure Brew therefore has its own ideal setting for the barista to be able to offer the experience in the cup that he/she is looking for. We then introduced a system that measures and controls the flowrate for every type of extraction to guarantee maximum precision and thus the right weight in every cup. With the gravimetric and volumetric sensors, the new algorithm constantly monitors and controls the flowrate. By checking the quantity of water, and taking account of the dropping phase, the algorithm calculates the right moment to stop the flow to obtain the quantity of espresso or Pure Brew as defined in the recipe. The result is matchless consistency and a big reduction of waste”.
This is how we added a further sustainable technological solution to Maverick that, yet again, revolutionises our way of making coffee.
The gravimetric version of Black Eagle Maverick has also now been enhanced with a new design detail that makes it immediately recognisable: the Victoria Arduino logo in red enamel on every group.
