Mechanika Max has a brew temperature consistency, expected from a dual boiler machine. This is thanks to the Smart HX system, with two PID controls built into the machine. One located in the boiler, and a second probe in the brew group inlet, monitoring the actual brew water and ensuring that the set temperature of the thermosyphon system is maintained. Resulting in incredibly accurate brew water temperature.

A key feature of the Max is the Brew Temperature Control (btC), three settings are available for brewing, with the goal to save energy and deliver perfect brew temperatures. When the btC is turned on, the boiler runs at a lower temperature, so ideal for espresso or long black coffees. We recommend switching of btC when preparing a number of milk based coffees. 

Another smart factor in eliminating any guesswork to brewing with a HX machine, is the Flush Advisor indicating on the PID display, when a flush of the group head, is required due to the brew water temperature rising from the espresso machine sitting idle for too long. Once the timer appears after flushing, this indicates that the brew water temperature is ideal for brewing espresso.

With a range of other features incorporated into this compact machine, Max is one of the most innovative and well delivered HX machines available.
