Arduino White Eagle VA358, built on the platform of the official World Barista Championship espresso machine, is ideal for those wanting unprecedented performance, efficiency and reliability. It has amazing standard features like an LCD display, espresso shot timers, soft infusion, powerful steam with push-pull controls & cool-touch wands, steam tips ideal for micro-foaming, automatic back-flushing, adjustable hot water temperature & pump pressure, and much more. White Eagle comes in a Matte Black, Pearl White or Steelux (chrome) finish, with matching grinders available.
2 Models Available:
Digit: The White Eagle Digit has a high resolution 4 ¼ inch LCD display, giving the barista unparalleled control over the machine. The Touchscreen easily programs espresso shot dosages, pre-infusion, boiler pressure (PID), several maintenance features, on/off times, various counters, and many more smart functions. The HD display can also time all independent shots simultaneously, eliminating the need for external timers.
Suitable for: medium to high volume locations, high quality coffee shops, specialty coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, demanding professionals, barista competitors, locations with less experienced baristas
T3: The White Eagle T3 builds off our Digit version, giving the barista ultimate control of water temperature throughout the machine. T3 technology allows complete control over the temperature of the primary steam/hot-water boiler, the brew-group boilers, and the head of each group, so each group can precisely operate at any temperature, independent of each other.
Suitable for: medium to high volume locations, high quality coffee shops, specialty coffee shops, demanding professionals, barista competitors, coffee roasters & cafes requiring adjustable brew temperatures
T3 Technology (T3 version) allows Barista to adjust PID controls for 3 separate parameters: group temperature + brewing temperature (independently for each group) + steam (boiler) pressure
SIS (Soft Infusion System) optimizes extraction for creamiest espresso
LCD Multi-function Display allows Barista to control everything: espresso shot volumes & pre-infusion, steam PID (view & adjust boiler temperature), brew & group temperatures (T3 models), on/off time, maintenance features (e.g. Automated Independent Backflushing), self-diagnostics, alarms, etc.
PID (Digital Pressostat) allows Barista to view & adjust boiler temperature
Volumetric Dosing means Barista programs 4 espresso shot volumes (single/double/short/long/etc) per group (identically or independently) for one-touch operation & consistency between users
Shot timer displays brew time for each group independently in LCD
EasyCream System (optional) with adjustable 2-stage air induction, tangential steam jets & programmable temperature control, for the ultimate one-touch automatic micro-foam and optimum consistency
Push-Pull Steam System avoids stress on Barista’s hand – press upwards for purging or lock it down for continuous steaming
Cool Touch steam wands are safer and easier to clean
Largest boiler & fastest heat recovery means most sustained steam pressure & simultaneous tea/Americano water
- 12 lb brass groups are heaviest brew groups in the industry for brew temperature stability
Raised groups fit most larger cups, with portable risers included for smaller cups
Reverse Mirror back-plate allows Barista to see inside groups or bottomless portafilters without bending over
Portafilters are solid chrome-plated brass with ergonomic molded handles & rubber grips for minimizing stress on Barista’s wrist
Automated Independent Backflushing for fast & easy group cleaning while machine is in normal operation
Pump Pressure Gauge makes it easy to check pressure profiles and monitor machine performance (includes digital pressure gauge on LCD display)
Pump pressure can be adjusted externally by Barista

STEAM WAND OPTIONS
The Aurelia II Digit & T3 (not T3 Semi-Automatic) can be purchased with 1 right side automatic steam wand with 2-buttons (additional charge applies), and the left side traditional wand can also be replaced with an automatic steam wand with 1-button (additional charge applies).
The EasyCream Automatic Micro-Foaming System replaces the manual steam handle with a button. Once pressed, the modified wand steams in a unique angular direction while monitoring the temperature with an integrated probe, so it knows:
- when to start & stop injecting air for perfect microfoam, and
- when to stop steaming for standardized milk temperature.
EasyCream requires no input from the barista to perfectly texture the milk; the barista simply places the wand in the pitcher of cold milk and when it reaches the desired (programmed) temperature the steam automatically turns off, leading to a consistent drink, regardless of the skill-level of the barista.
