The Perfect Espresso Must Be Italian

 - May 18, 2008, 12:25 AM

Italian cabin supplier Iacobucci HF Electronics has introduced a new espresso maker designed for use in an aircraft galley. Ideally sized for a small galley, the device measures 6.3 inches wide, 12 inches high and 10.8 inches deep, and weighs 26.45 pounds. Features include a nonpressurized hot-water boiler, three-way electro-valve control, over-temperature automatic shutdown, low-water automatic shutdown, no-water LED indicator and electrical circuit-breaker. Iacobucci marketing manager Gwendoline Legrand says it makes a perfect cup of espresso.

The espresso maker can be attached to Iacobucci’s new 2.2-liter independent auxiliary water container, ensuring a pure source of water. Both devices are on display at the Iacobucci booth (No. 1547).
