Replica 2B, “2 much” control in your hands.Replica 2B is the most evolved and most performant model of VBM’s 1961 line. A precise and reliable espresso machine that gives the bartender an optimum control of the temperature without renouncing the timeless appeal of the E61 group.Replica embodies the very history of VBM. A coffee machine that in terms of both technology and style, has a direct link with the epic past of italian coffee making proudly inspiring the entire VBM 1961 line.The Replica machines represent the ideal instrument for all baristas who prefer the charm of mechanics to the coldness of modern electronics. Steel on the outside, a warm heart insideThe design of Replica has been evolving since the first model created in 1983. When creating Replica, we have never saved on the use of materials that characterise the design of this espresso machine. All Replica machines are made in steel of the highest quality, perfectly manufactured and assembled to create elegant and modern forms with a gently vintage design that today expresses all the appeal of the recent past.
The use of stainless steel is a distinctive element of all VBM 1961 machines and, for the Replica in particular, steel is everything. The aesthetic elements are made entirely in polished steel; a robust and shiny casing that covers all sides of the machine.
Even the Replica 2B, like the Replica HX, still use the E61 group, due to its unique technical features and because it guarantees baristas that simple and direct interaction that only this group can offer.The functional components - steam valves, hot water wands, drip trays, cup trays and start-up devices - are all designed so that you never lose that feeling that only products from the past could give you. The Replica 2B Electronic integrates, in perfect Replica style, a control dashboard inspired by the mechanical lines of the robust steam lances and the perfectly visible E61 groups. This design allows the right space for the groups functioning, optimizing their performance, and it’s a perfect example of how thoughtful mechanical engineering becomes design.
Gruppo VBM E61, a timeless iconThe espresso-brewing Group by definition. A timeless icon that has indelibly marked the history of Italian coffee making over the last half-century, and not only. A small gem of Italian mechanics dating back to the sixties that is still successfully installed on many professional machines, with an aesthetic so appealing that it remains proudly in sight on all 1961 machines, so as to not lose any of that timeless charm that no one has been able to equal.
Multi boiler system, water temperature control.The Multi-boiler system by VBM, available on Replica 2B, is the natural evolution of the HX system paired with the E61 group. Every group head is directly connected to a small (0.5 liter) boiler where water passes through after being heated in main boiler heat exchanger. Each head boiler has a dedicated resistance that allows a finer control of the water’s temperature compared to the traditional HX system.
