Elektra K-UP espresso machine
(Volumetric)

Machine
Description

Elektra K-UP’s minimalist open styling and optional illuminated side panels make it one of the most unique espresso machines available. There is a large open work tray and enough height for even your tallest cups, with two risers included if your prefer to use shorter cups on one or both groups.

Patented joystick steam controls usher powerful steam by pressing them in any direction to easily micro-foam milk; but the two steam wands are grouped together on the left side while the brew groups are together on the right, allowing two Baristas to operate side by side, like an assembly-line. This layout can increase efficiency when very busy, and is ideal for busy rushes such as in a banquet hall setting. And one steam wand can be replaced with the Milk Frothing System that automatically steams milk to a  temperature and texture you can program, which can improve efficiency even further.

K-UP’s brew temperature can be adjusted electronically (for different coffee profiles) and comes with an standard Volumetric programming, which allows a barista to program 4 espresso shot volumes per group, thereby pulling consistent shots at that exact volume every time. Shots are more consistent between users and – because the barista doesn’t have to monitor the espresso – there is more time to interact with customers or begin another order.

K-UP comes with a Stainless Steel front, maple-wood accents, and either a Matte Black or White Enamel finish.
