The Breville BES920XL Dual Boiler maintains the perfect temperature and pressure with an novel dual boiler system. The dual boiler heating system runs high pressure steam through the coffee extraction filter, and a separate steam supply to the milk heater and frother. So there is no compromise to either the coffee extraction process, nor the milk heater, you get both the very best espresso, added to the perfect milk and froth, to make your espresso just how you like it.
Perfect temperature control
To make sure the coffee is extracted at the perfect temperature throughout the process, the Breville BES920XL Dual Boiler coffee maker maintains the water temperature right throughout the process with a heating element in the head of the espresso machine. This additional thermal control is yet another innovation for the best home espresso, which prevents the liquid from cooling before it is delivered into the cup.
Perfect pressure control
The Breville BES920XL espresso coffee maker also features an overpressure valve so as to prevent too much pressure build up during the extraction process. Too much pressure can increase the bitterness of the coffee. If the temperature is too high, this can also increase the bitterness of the brew. So the Breville BES920XL Dual Boiler home espresso machine provides the best control over the temperature and pressure to deliver that perfect cup of espresso.
