ACS Minima Espresso Machine

by ACS
$2,300.00

ACS has been innovating in the espresso machine space since the beginning and the Minima is no exception..  The Minima features an E61 group head with dual PID controlled boilers in a price range where competitors only offer heat exchanger machines; making it one of the best value machines on the market. 

True to its name, the Minima might not have a lot of bells and whistles, but it has everything that you need to make great espresso: dual stainless steel boilers, PID, E61 group head with a pressure gauge, automatic fill, shot timer and even last shot protection.

 

Features:

  • Dual Boiler: Two PID controlled stainless steel boilers, one for steam and  one for the coffee extraction and hot water delivery. A system studied to grant higher temperature stability and to allow the simultaneous delivery of coffee and steam
  • PID Temperature Control:  The PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) controller allows the user to precisely adjust the brew or steam temperature and improve temperature stability.  It also doubles as a shot timer while brewing.
  • Solenoid Driven E61 Group Head: The E61 brew head design has been around for 50 years and is used in the majority of the high end home espresso machines.  It is known its reliability and temperature stability due to heavy brass head combined with a thermosyphon system keeping the group head hot.  
  • Group Head Pressure Gauge: Know the exact pressure on the coffee puck at anytime during the extraction.
  • Powerful Steam: Commercial grade steam with a large 2.3L dedicated steam boiler and a 1200W element.
  • Last Shot Protection:  The machine is programmed to finish your last coffee even if the low water level is reached.
  • Compact Size:  The compact size of the Minima means it will fit any kitchen; as long as you don't need to put it in a right hand corner :)

 

Note: The ACS Minima is customizable.  Panels can be painted the color of your choice and wood kits are available.  Contact us at info@coffeeaddicts.ca if you would like to special order a custom machine made to your specifications.

Great machine, better service

I started out getting parts to fix my gaggia classic. Service was amazing helping me diagnose the issues and fix my machine. I then upgraded my machine to the ACS Minima and it has been an awesome unit, makes great espresso and a definite step up on milk streaming from the Gaggia! Can't thank everyone at coffee addicts enough for all the information, quick responses, and amazing service. One of the best purchase experiences I have had.
