The World Barista Championship continues to rely on high and innovative technology, choosing the historical brand Victoria Arduino which official coffee machine for the next three editions of the competition. It’s Victoria Arduino machine, the coffee machine that the international organization WCE has selected as official equipment for editions, 2015, 2016 and 2017 of the World Barista Championship. Its names is VA388 Black Eagle, the newest espresso machine of the historical brand Victoria Arduino, which since 1905 combines best technology with elegant design. The announcement was made today by the World Coffee Events organization.

The VA388 Black Eagle, equipped with T3 technology, successfully passed all the tests it underwent and it will be used by all barista champions of the world at the finals of the Championship in Seattle (USA) from April 9th to 12th 2015. World Barista Championship tests have proved that the VA388 Black Eagle is an excellent machine under several aspects: thermal stability that guarantees optimal coffee extraction, energy efficiency, ergonomics and environmental sustainability. Victoria Arduino is part of Nuova Simonelli group, proud to be again technical partner of theWorld Barista Championship, having previously held the same position for the last six years. “This accomplishment – said the CEO of the company Nando Ottavi – is the result of a commitment undertaken for several years in the field of technological innovation through the active collaboration with various research centers, universities and international experts in the world of coffee “.

VA388 Black Eagle combines tradition and experience with breathtaking innovation. The result is high-tech and high reliability. With T3 technology the official coffee machine at the World Championship for baristas from 2015-2017 will ensure standards of accuracy in terms of extraction, flexibility, control and thermal stability. However it is difficult to separate technique and style, because its forms are also very functional. The ergonomic aspect is particularly important and can really make the barista happy, as does the technological aspect. The machine has a lower profile compared to past models and all the commands, from digital to manual, have been carefully designed to be extremely functional and ergonomic. At the same time their positioning – including a display for each group – is rewarding for everyone using them. Impressive at first glance, the machine is very solid as it is made almost entirely of high quality metal. This includes all its internal components, which are made of copper, stainless steel and aluminum. The VA388 Black Eagle is competitive not only in championships, but also in terms of sustainability. Its materials are recyclable and in addition it was designed to reduce energy loss, giving energy savings of at least 40% compared to a standard espresso machine.

Victoria Arduino is a brand that has been instrumental in the history of espresso. The poster publicising the company, created by Italian artist Leonetto Cappiello in 1922, is an icon in the industry. Founded in 1905, from the first models of coffee machines, Victoria Arduino has always tried to perfectly match the technical side and a stylish look, based on a functionality of both use and decor. Its elegance, enriched with exquisite decorations and shiny materials, allowed Victoria Arduino to quickly impose itself on the market. Since then, all espresso coffee machines from this brand have been distinguished by an attention to design and extreme functionality. They can overcome the dimension of time and then rise above the fashions of several decades, to join us now with all the improvements that technology can offer. Even today, Victoria Arduino is the machine for those who want to create a particular atmosphere in their locale. With its sophisticated originality of form you can build the entire location around this machine. Create an environment to live fully, in which time perhaps flows more slowly, certainly more pleasantly. Victoria Arduino today is a product of passion for coffee lovers, artisan coffee shops and anyone who wants to melt into the history of espresso enveloped in a glorious brand, aesthetic quality and the most advanced technologies. After establishing the history of espresso in the 20th century, Victoria Arduino in the 21st century, with the VA388 Black Eagle, is designing the future.
