Unusual Boema - any info?
Spotted this machine in a second-hand shop.
I did an online search for info about it but could find nothing.
Does anyone know anything about it?
I believe that group head type is normally referred to as a 'hotel group'.
It basically uses the espresso extraction method but using a huge basket to extract a large quantity of coffee into the chamber beneath the basket where there appears to be a sight glass with markings down the side to indicate the volume of coffee inside.
Essentially produces 'bulk brewer' quantities but using the espresso extraction technique rather than the pourover method.
Thanks for that info MorganGT.
The filter basket is certainly impressive - I reckon it would hold a couple of hundred grams of ground coffee.
This thing would make espresso on an industrial scale.
