The Three-Group Semi-Automatic Venus Bar Copper (MXS3R002) from Victoria Arduino features the upright domed design that has become such an espresso icon. Perfectly at home in espresso boutiques and nostalgic or vintage cafés, the Venus Bar, with its smooth and rustic copper finish, looks as though it would be just as at home in pre-war Italy or smoky coffee houses where the Beat movement was born. More than mere kitsch, however, the Venus Bar can also pour an exquisite cup of espresso thanks to its wealth of all too modern technology behind the scenes. For example, semi-automatic dosing controls, the barista and not the machine decides just when the perfect extraction is complete, and its three group heads allow it to keep up with more popular cafés.
