Expobar Brewtus II
The Expobar Brewtus II is a prosumer espresso machine featuring large 1.75 ounce dual boilers; one boiler is for brewing, the other is for steaming. The individual boilers each have their own 975 watt heating elements. The dual boilers allow for better control of temperature and faster time for the heating of the water. This unit does need to be plumbed, as it does not have a reservoir system like some of the later models with vibration pumps. The easy-to read LED digital temperature control allows precision in temperature regulation. There are separate gauges for the steam and brew functions. The unit comes equipped with an E61 style brew cup. Although this model appears to be out-of production, there are previously owned models available for purchase online.
Expobar Brewtus III
The Expobar Brewtus III is the next generation of the Expobar line. This model has the same features as the model previously described. Additional features include a port filter as well as single and double brewing baskets. The Expobar Brewtus III-V has a vibration pump as opposed to a rotary pump. There is no need to plumb the unit. This model includes a 90-ounce reservoir with an automatic low water cut off switch that prevents damages to the unit. The makers of the Expobar Brewtus model III-V introduced a Proportional Integral Differential (PID) control feature, which allows the user enhanced control of temperature. There are a limited number of new Expobar Brewtus III machines for sale online as well as a few used machines.
Expobar Brewtus IV
There are different variations of the Expobar Brewtus IV. There is a version with a rotary pump, which feature a blind filter basket and a brass water adapter.
