S40 Seletron, once again, is recognized as the ideal solution for perfection in the cup, thanks to the control functionality and to the reliability of its technology which support the skills of the baristas competing for the next UKBC 2015 champion title.

For this 3-year partnership, La Spaziale will accomplish a special and limited edition of such espresso coffee machine model, with specially dedicated aesthetic finishing.

The sponsorship is part of the success of the strong partnership with La Spaziale UK representing La Spaziale brand all over UK.

S40 Seletron: the top choice for the barista

S40 is La Spaziale most complete coffee machine: it is technological, reliable and ergonomic.

While offering advanced technical solutions and avant-garde electronics, such model boasts an exclusive design with high class finishing, lights and chrome effects, which perfectly match with the furniture of modern outlets.

Wide displays, a main one and one for each delivery group, allow the total electronic control of the machine, both for the barista and for the technician dedicated to its maintenance.

All the settings of the machine are controlled and customized thanks to the use of a “service card” which allows the perfect interaction between the machine and the professional operator, so as to satisfy the needs of the coffee location and of its customers. Even the software update supporting the card has been made absolutely simple.

The machine, furthermore, has a smart way to control operating temperature granting always a consistent energy saving.

More specifically, La Spaziale has designed and developed the S40 Seletron to allow the regulation of the total power absorption according to the work load in a specific time or according to the different times of the day. Furthermore, its electronics is able to compensate the boiler operating temperature on a constant base according to the external environmental temperature, thus avoiding a waste of energy.

It is also possible to set different temperatures for each delivery group and even for each single coffee dose within the same group: this allows to choose the best parameters to deliver different coffee types or blends. The perfect espresso delivery comes out as a result of the possibility to control the extraction curve thanks to a function signaling possible grinding errors.
