Starting in Athens a ‘road map’ leads towards Gravimetric Day in Seattle. The occasion is the tenth edition of HORECA, an international event at the Metropolitan Expo in Greek capital from 6th – 9th February. The Athens trade fair will turn the spotlight onto the innovative gravimetric technology that Victoria Arduino has introduced in the new version of the VA388 Black Eagle, which will be available after the 2015 World Barista Championship. The basic model, with T3 technology, was chosen as the official coffee machine for WBC 2015.

At the stands of Victoria Arduino partners, Karoulias (Hall 1 Stand B2-C01) and Mokka (Hall 1 Stand D30), reigning world champion barista Hidenori Izaki will demonstrate the advantages of gravimetric technology , which measures the amount of coffee extract directly in the cup. With this system, the data is much more precise and especially is not affected by other factors, such as the shape of the filter, the pressing force of the coffee, the condition of the showers and more. Once the barista has identified the optimal extraction condition for each type of coffee, gravimetric gives them full control of each delivery, with complete consistency in the result, every time. After Athens, the ‘road map’ will continue during February and March at various international fairs and end with Gravimetric Day in Seattle during the 2015 WBC.
