Common Questions and Answers
Q: What is the difference between a super-automatic espresso machine like the A600 FM CM and an automatic espresso machine?
A: An automatic espresso machine builds some automation into espresso production.
The A600 FM CM actually automates the entire drink making process.
Automatic espresso machines are generally designed with volumetric or programmable dosing buttons. When baristas press these buttons, the machines dispense espresso shots to the programmed specifications.
The rest of the drink making process is up to the barista, usually from espresso grinding to milk steaming.
A super-automatic machine like the A600 FM CM grinds, brews, and steams milk—and builds the whole drink for you.
The A600 FM CM is also capable of creating many more drink types on its own, which greatly differentiates it from a traditional automatic espresso machine.
The bottom line is that the A600 FM CM is the self-operating beverage system that makes self-service cappuccinos and hot and cold beverages instantly available to everyone.
Q: What does the FoamMaster system in the A600 FM CM system do?
A: The FoamMaster gives you the ability to select different milk foam consistencies and thicknesses.
You can adjust steamed milk for a variety of beverages and combinations—and even select hot or cold milk foam.
In the absence of traditional milk steaming that would be performed by hand with another espresso machine, the FoamMaster does everything for you.
Q: How does iQFlow work in the A600 FM CM?
A: Franke’s iQFlow technology introduces flavor quality and consistency unseen in other super-automatic espresso machines.
iQFlow regulates the water flowing through the coffee and generates evenly distributed pressure. Not only is more flavor extracted, a personalized tasting profile can be preset to create a distinctive flavor in each cup.
Ordinarily, careful grinder adjustments are necessary to get the extraction and flavor you want. The iQFlow replaces this manual system with consistent and automated perfection.
You can actually tailor your coffee to your preferences with this incredible technology.
Q: What is pre-infusion and how does it work in the A600 FM CM?
A: Pre-infusion is a stage of extraction that happens before the pressurized water is pumped through the coffee bed.
During the pre-infusion stage, the coffee is immersed in water, ensuring that all particles are evenly reached.
As a result, the individual flavors can be more easily extracted. You’ll get more nuanced tasting notes in your cup.
The A600 FM CM’s pre-infusion system is part of its intelligent design focused on creating richer espresso for coffee lovers.
