Replica HX, thirty years and still going strongThe history and tradition of VBM is all concentrated in the Replica HX with heat exchanger, which for thirty years has never ceased to excite the baristas in love with this epic 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.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.
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.
HX technology, Heater Exchanger Brewing SystemThe HX (Heater eXchanger) technology is the most efficient among the traditional brewing systems; it ensures the outstanding temperature maintenance of the group and, together with the E61 group, offers excellent mechanical pre-infusion, the first requirement for quality extraction.
After thirty years, the Replica machines 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, especially in the manual version, can offer.
Even 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 most fascinating version of the Replica HX is without a doubt the manual one, the version that best enhances the E61 groups in their absolute splendour, perfectly visible along with the robust steam valves, a perfect example of mechanics that becomes decoration thanks to the quality of the design.
The electronic version optimises performance by inserting a button panel that leaves the right space for the groups and blends in seamlessly with the Replica lines.
