Vibiemme Domobar Super

CoffeeGeek takes a first look at a heat exchanging, E61 equipped machine that stands out from the crowd on more than a few features.

I recently got a Quickmill "Anita" as a gift.  It's very nice and less expensive - but it looks like the Vibiemme Domobar Super has some additional features I would love.  Maybe I need one for the office.

Finally!

An E61 without a teenie-weenie boiler. This machine is a perfect fit between the entry level E61 and the mammoth Electra Sixties and Astra Gourmet GS mondo machines. Very exciting! I can't wait to read the detaled review.

Bravo and Thank YOU!

It is good to see more reviews coming up!

The Vibiemme home machines are highly regarded in Europe and personally I like the looks f the new Domobar Super (especially in its manual form). The gauges somehow remind me of Isomac Tea. It looks like the cup warming tray needs to be removed for refilling the reservoir.

Considering the size of the machine, I would have throught that Vibiemme would also offer a Rotary pump alternative. I'm also curious as to whether a plumb in option exists (both in and out)...

Great looking machine,  very similiar to the ECM veneziano, (only at half the price,too). A side by side comparison would be very interesting ! !

Dimesions appear to be quite deep due to the drip tray.

That is one state-ofthe-art looking coffee machine. Does it come with a mp3 player yet?

OK, now I'm confused!  I thought with an H/X machine, you had to do "cooling flushes," etc., but how do you do that with a non-level machine?  (Which, parentheticaly, is a PITA and -- obviously -- something I never had to do with my Caffe Gaggia (non-H/X) machine.

So:  how do you do a cooling flush with a semi- or full automatic Vibiemme Domobar Super?  Or do you need to?  Is a semi- or full automatic Vibiemme "less tempramental" than a "normal" (level-operated) E-61?

Also, now I'm torn between the Quick Mill Andreja Premium and the Vibiemme Domobar Super?  Any ideas/suggestions/hints?

Jason. Welcome to CG. With all HX machines you need to flush the overheated water from the HX (the flush is longer when the machine has been stading idle because the water in the HX is hotter). This is not related to whether the machine is semi-automatic or automatic and the only difference in how the flush is performed is in how the pump is activated (lever or button depending on the machine).
