gb5 - PID Controller

The PID Controller employs an algorithm to regulate when and for how long the heating element is engaged in the brew boiler. The PID controller allows more efficient and stable regulation of energy. With this level of control, temperature variability is reduced dramatically, making for a more consistent brew temperature. The barista is able to adjust the brew boiler temperature to a precise numerical value using a simple keypad without having to remove machine panels. 

gb5 - Engineering

saturated groups
ensure unsurpassed thermal stability, shot after shot.

dual boiler system
separate boilers optimize espresso brewing and steam production.

dual PID (coffee and steam)
allows you to electronically control coffee and steam boiler temperature.

insulated boilers
reduce energy consumption while contributing to temperature stability.

ruby flow restrictors
synthetic ruby flow restrictors resist scale formation and erosion.

pre-heating system
prior to entering into the coffee boiler, water is pre-heated – thus increasing productivity.

gb5 - Ergonomics

stainless steel portafilters & precision baskets

for improved cup quality and consistency.

digital display
temperature display, shot timers and intuitive programming simplifies the adjustment of machine parameters.

hot water economizer
fine tune the temperature of the hot water spout.
