The A800 is produced in Switzerland and is packed full of Swiss quality right down to the tiniest construction details. The A800’s clientele wants uncompromising quality at the very top performance levels. This is the philosophy behind the machine, designed down to the very last component to meet the highest capacity demands and classically Swiss in its reliability and efficient operation.
The patented brew group is the centerpiece of the A800. It was designed with the aim of improving the extraction results even further and guaranteeing exquisite coffee moments. Three brewing units – with a 43 mm sieve, a 50 mm sieve, and a patented needle filter – are precisely adjusted to the various extraction grades needed to offer a wide range of beverages. It can be removed quickly and easily from the front without tools, making it exceptionally easy to service.
The A800 can be equipped with up to three grinders. The easily accessible bean hoppers can be filled in an incredibly straightforward process and guarantee that the beans always move optimally through the feeder. They can also be removed easily using the central unlocking mechanism on the front of the machine. This then gives you access to the coarseness settings in the ceramic grinder – all without the use of any tools. The precision discs on the grinder are extremely robust and have a long service life, which results in consistently uniform grinding results.
Three entirely separate boilers for hot water, coffee preparation, and steam play a major role in the A800’s high capacity levels. They make it possible to prepare a coffee while pouring hot water for tea and generating steam, all at the same time. This means that the A800 is perfectly geared to respond rapidly at maximum performance levels. All these components work in perfect harmony to create an optimum result that guarantees enjoyment, sip after sip – in Switzerland and all over the world.
With its three-part boiler system and superior operating concept, the A800 is also designed to handle large order volumes in a short amount of time. In the hands of a creative operator, the integrated FoamMasterTM technology, chocolate dosing system, up to three grinders, and optional flavor station can be used not just to deliver any quantity of beverages, but also to fulfill even the most exotic of drink requests.
The A800 packs every coffee beverage with enticing aromas, whether you’re making a classic dark espresso in a glass, an elegantly layered latte macchiato, or a special organic coffee from the highlands of Costa Rica finished with a dash of cold foam.
With the double powder dosing system, you can offer two different types of chocolate. Working in perfect harmony with the A800’s milk foaming system, the dosing system lets you create exquisitely smooth and creamy light or dark chocolate beverages or mixed coffee and chocolate drinks. As light and airy as milk can be.
Enjoy hot and cold milk foam in your preferred consistency as if it had been prepared by hand. The short foaming time is particularly gentle, and only uses the amount needed. This efficient milk foaming system sustainably reduces milk waste and can also cut the calorie content of the beverage.
With the optional flavor station, you can enhance your beverages with up to three different flavored syrups. Combine your coffee beverage or your milk with the flavors of your choice to create anything from a fruity mixed milk drink to a luxurious caramel latte macchiato. The possibilities are almost endless.

Superb coffee machine which produces brilliant coffee. Would have liked to have got it with the optional cup warmer as the coffee is not 'boiling' hot when produced however this was our choice not to get it with the coffee machine.
