Swiss coffee machine manufacturer Eversys has overhauled its E’line super automatic series with the launch of the Enigma line.
Enigma is said to concentrate on aesthetics coupled with in cup quality and consistency, designed to express the true origin of coffee.
Alexandre Rossier, head of design at Eversys, said: “It’s not about creating a new design for the sake of it. Design must always enhance a product for the better.
“Design can only work effectively if it fits in with the technological objectives of our engineering team, the needs of our customers, and matches with the company vision. In the case of Eversys, it always begins with the customer and in-cup quality.”
The new line includes the E’4, modelled on a two-group espresso machine; the Shotmaster, a slim unit with two coffee dispensing outlets; and the Shotmaster Pro with two dispensing outlets and an integrated 1.5-step milk texturing capability.
Each model comes with side module accessory options, including E’choco with two powder canisters, E’fridge with a 9-litre capacity, and an E’cup heater with a four-heating-plates.
The new display screens are 27% larger than the previous series at 10.1-inches (25.6 centimetres) with a higher resolution and wider viewing angle to make product selection easier. It also allows videos to run thanks to a more powerful central processing unit, run on a Linux platform.
The coffee outlet is a new design that is intended to bridge the look of a conventional machine with a super traditional model. The unit is available in two versions: Tempest and Earth, with side panels in natural aluminium and copper colour, respectively.
The top of the machine and the drip trays are made of resistant stainless steel. The bean hoppers and cup guards have darker hues, and the front of the machine evokes a black, glossy finish. A light cup guard helps reduce the machine’s perceived height, while the coffee outlet is said to be designed with better ergonomics and haptics.
The Classic design represents an evolution from the previous E’line whilst the super traditional version is a design created to appeal to people seeking to leverage technology to enable them to be more creative, consistent and productive.
The market launch of the various Enigma models will be staggered until the end of 2020.
