FULLY SATURATED GROUP

_______________

The new Slim Jim Idrocompresso offers a multiple boiler system: one boiler per group, PID temperature controlled, each fed with water preheated to near target temperature by a huge thermo loop heat-exchanger, equipped with automatic temperature adjusting. The lever group cylinder is completely surrounded by the hot water that will be used to brew (all around & underneath bottom). Temperature stability is magnificent.

NEW LOCKING MECHANISM

_______________

There’s a fully new locking mechanism in place. This new locking mechanism virtually eliminates the danger of a bouncing lever.So, the old lever group’s inherent danger to hit the barista, when accidentally bouncing up, is now history.


ADJUSTABLE SPRING PRESSURE

_______________

Adjustable spring pressure. Especially for the Slim Jim Idrocompresso we’ve developed a system with tools to fine tune the spring pressure.This allows the barista to even out the extraction pressure between the groups.

EASY FLUSH & STOP EXTRACTION

_______________

Next to the big lever, there’s an additional small lever next to each group to purge and clean the group screen. No need to pull the big lever anymore.This same small lever can also stop extraction immediately at any time. The group lever will then quietly return to its resting position.


CLEAR FEEDBACK

_______________

Just like with any Slim Jim, there’s a shot-timer, that starts and stops automatically with every pull. The pressure gauge shows the actual pressure, right at the puck. When infusion is completed and the lever is un-locked, it travels back to its resting position at the rate of the extraction. Next to the obviously important theatrics, this provides the barista a clear view on how extraction is developing, even from some distance.

NO SNEEZE

_______________

The Slim Jim Idrocompresso does away with the infamous ‘sneeze” because of an automatic relieve valve, whether the shot stops by itself or by the barista. You can proceed with the next shot swiftly, no need to wait for pressure to vanish through the puck. Finally, the machine comes with a regulating valve to adjust infusion pressure to your liking. If your mains pressure is not reliably stable, we offer a pump as an option.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Multiple boiler system: one boiler per group, PID temperature controlled, each fed with water preheated to near target temperature by a huge thermo loop heat-exchanger, equipped with automatic temperature adjusting. The lever group cylinder is completely surrounded by the hot water that will be used to brew (all around & underneath bottom). Temperature stability is magnificent.
  • The old lever group’s inherent danger to hit the barista when accidentally bouncing up has been deleted by our own newly developed locking mechanism.
  • Pressure gauge per group indicating real-life extraction pressure development at the puck.
  • Actual temperature at each group is displayed in extra large digits.
  • Large lever slowly returns to its start position, indicating the proceeding extraction in the proper old school way.
  • A small lever next to each group to purge & clean group screen. No need to pull the big lever. This same lever is also used to stop the extraction immediately at whatever position. The group lever then quietly returns to its resting position.
  • No filter holder sneeze, one can proceed swiftly when extraction is finished.
  • Cool PEEK plates: the dispersion plate as well as the bottom of the piston are made in PEEK. This remains clean very long and does not absorb heat from brew water.
  • Bottom of piston consists of discs which can be easily taken apart to replace rubber piston rings
  • Adjustable spring pressure.
  • Adjustable infusion pressure.
  • Smooth, membrane-type E61 group screen by IMS.
  • Two different temperatures of hot water.
  • Drain tray easily adjustable in height.
  • Isolated, power ful steam boiler – up to 6.000Watt.
  • All stainless steel construction.

OPTIONAL

  • Foot activated steam valves.
  • Sneeze guard awning.
  • External temperature probe.
  • External pump to adjust to any possible infusion pressure, especially recommended when line pressure fluctuates.

VIRTUAL ENDLESS CUSTOMISATION POSSIBILITIES

Next to the high build quality and strong performance in extraction and steam, our machines` main point of difference has since 1984 been their design. We intend to exploit our experience in this field to its full extent. The Slim Jim will be offered in a wide array of appearances. Everybody can now have their own bespoke machine, be it the aspiring espresso bar owner or the chain of shops. One may choose between many different, visually defining parts like legs, front panels, side panels, cup rails, colours, awnings, colour of knobs/handles, groups, etc. All parts are interchangeable.
