    HAROS semi-automatic boiler.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Does anyone have any experience with this item in question? In terms of milk preparation for espresso.

    The idea is to reduce congestion of getting in the way of another barista, by eliminating the need to use the steam wand on the espresso machine itself. I also think this would help keep the brewing temperature on the espresso machine itself more consistent.

    Opinions welcome~

    I used one at the Aroma fest a few years ago when we went through about 30kg of coffee in a day. It did a pretty good job with the 1.5L jugs, but the one that I used lacked autofill and the pressure varied a fair bit. The steam tip was esentially holes punched in the end of the steam wand, so you either love it or put up with it - no changing. I gather that an autofill version is now available.

    It should help to reduce congestion if your area is set up correctly. As for brewing temperature ... well ... yes ... on a HX, but it seems kind of silly to put up with the disadvantages of a HX machine if you arent going to use the advantage of on-demand steam, for which the brew temp tradeoffs are made.

    Cheers,
