S8-S9 La Spaziale: efficiency and high performance

La Spaziale S8-S9 series is inheriting the outstanding reputation of the well known S5 which has been successfully on the market for 7 years now. The S8-S9 coffee machines offer a renewed body aesthetics and maintain the same functions and technical features.

The most important aspect of these coffee machines is the electronic boiler temperature regulation, that is to say the electronic temperature control which is set directly on the control-panel, through a led display visualizing the delivery temperature at any time.

The precise and sensitive adjustment of the operating temperature of the machine is essential when you want to grant an optimal and constant result in the cup with any coffee blend used.

The machines belonging to S8-S9 series can be equipped also with some optional functions which increase their efficiency, thus meeting the different requirements of the professional operators. For those who use different coffee blends, for example, the S8-S9 allows to control and set the temperature of each group in a different and independent way (ITC).

Another function available is an additional steam wand with built-in sensor (MAT) for the automatic milk emulsion with temperature adjustment. Furthermore, La Spaziale has developed for these models an automatic system to set a service scheduled maintenance program, such as for example the wear control for the group-heads to service and the control of water softening or of softener cartridge replacement: all these service functions are programmable on the machine through an external display.

Here are briefly some of the features of the S8-S9 series:

–       Electronic boiler temperature control

–       Boiler temperature indicated by led display

–       Automatic operating temperature boost function

–       Control of malfunction alarms

–       Steam valves operated by knob in the S8 and by lever in the S9


After 44 years of business activity, the company is still growing, always believing in the values which have made it a key-reference for baristas all over the world: granting a high quality and constant result in the cup for Italian Espresso through a reliable and technology advanced coffee machine.
