Key Features and What They Mean
Built-In Dual Grinders
Two grinders with separate hoppers are built right into the Prontobar, saving you money on external equipment. You have the option of filling the hoppers with two different types of espresso, whether decaf and regular or two specialty coffee types for greater versatility.
Special Steel Burrs
Made of high-quality steel, the Prontobar’s burrs last much longer than average. Technological advancements and excellent flexibility allow the burrs to absorb operational vibrations, ensuring effective grinding in all environments.
Built-In Espresso Tamper
Tamping the espresso evenly and with the right amount of pressure is key in proper extraction (and well-developed espresso flavor). Automating tamping with total precision, the Prontobar leaves no stone unturned in its comprehensive design.
6 Programmable Drink Buttons
Program drink recipes on six different drink buttons for variety that baristas can access quickly. This is like telling the Prontobar how to make Americanos, cappuccinos, lattes, and other espresso beverages to your specifications. Then just push a button for the drink you want and let the Prontobar do the rest.
Automated Milk Steaming
One configuration of the Prontobar combines manual control and automated milk frothing for baristas who prefer a more traditional experience. Another Prontobar configuration completely automates milk frothing and drink building—the whole package for the fastest service. (See Configurations below.)
Thermo-Compensated Delivery Group
A metal thermo-compensated delivery group guarantees maximum temperature control. This generates consistent quality, leading to perfectly crafted drinks every single time. Further refinements made to the shape of some group components ensure improved operability and durability.
User-Friendly LCD Display
Everything can be done through the simple LCD display. In addition to selecting the drink type for the machine to make, you can easily program doses and temperatures for brewing, steaming, and the group. No hidden buttons or hard-to-read menus.
The Prontobar’s pump is quiet, so it won’t interrupt office employees and patrons of quieter cafes. Increasing productivity, the pump also allows the machine to optimize the crema texture and the dispensed volume.
Automatic Washing Program
Instead of spending 15 to 20 minutes manually cleaning the espresso machine at the end of the day, let the Prontobar do the work. The automatic washing program saves everyone time that could be used more effectively seeing to other necessary tasks.
Auto On/Off Time Setting and Standby Function
Automatic on-and-off time settings and standby functions save energy and the planet. Tell the machine exactly when to switch on and off and eliminate long warm-up periods at the start of the day.
1 Step Prontobar
The 1 Step Prontobar is the configuration that requires nothing more from the barista than pushing a button to start the drink-making process.
This configuration builds the entire drink in the coffee cup, starting with grinding and brewing espresso.
For milk-based drinks, the 1 Step Prontobar will draw milk from a milk cooler, steam it to perfection, and add it to the coffee cup.
This machine is a master of efficiency. Absolutely anyone can use it, even with only five minutes of training.
Note: This configuration requires adding a milk cooler upon purchase.
2 Step Prontobar
The 2 Step Prontobar gives a little more control to the user. While this configuration still grinds coffee, tamps it, and brews the espresso on its own, it requires the user to steam milk.
With this configuration, the barista adds the milk to the steam pitcher and selects the appropriate steam option.
Milk steaming is still partially automated as the built-in Auto-Steam mechanism will froth the milk to the correct standards for the drink type without any additional input from the user.
This can be preferable for coffee shops with more proficient baristas. It’s also helpful for latte artists layering the milk over the espresso in beautiful rosettas.
The installation of a water softener is mandatory for all users that don't meet the required water specifications. Failure to do so will void your warranty.
It is recommended to always add a water filter to your order if you do not have one already. Replacement time of filters depends on the water and quantity of drinks being made (see estimation calculator).
