Espresso coffees are the heart of every cafe, so getting the gear right, is time well spent. We’ve been working closely with the awesome team at Synesso since 2013, and we are proud to exclusively serve as their brand distributor. Hand built to order by a small team in Seattle, these espresso machines have been constructed with ease of use and engineering excellence firmly in mind. Various models offer up a range of volumetrics, multi-boiler technology and pressure profiling systems.
With so many variables constantly at play in the art of making espresso, the ability to regulate any of these aspects becomes a key factor in creating a repeatable shot recipe. Synesso has an industry leading heat and water system with maximum stability, and minimal loss, which results in a system that varies no more than 0.75˚ at any given time in the brew cycle- regardless of how busy you get. Say goodbye to temperature surfing.
Pre-infusion has become a commonly used tool in espresso making. By saturating the puck of espresso grounds, the espresso extracts more evenly, and reduces the negative impact of channeling. The Synesso technology includes programmable Pre-infusion time per group. The option to pre-infuse is included on every Synesso model.
Volumetric refers to the ability to program a specific amount of water to run through the portafilter for each use. Our volumetric machines come with 6 programmable settings for different volumes. This function alleviates baristas’ worry about turning a shot off, and it can increase repeatability of brew parameters. Volumetrics are available on our MVP and MVP Hydra models.
Our Machines and Models
Building on the numerous tools provided by the MVP, the MVP Hydra offers even more ways to simultaneously increase control and repeatability in espresso making. In addition to the universal group heads with changeable brew modes, 6 program positions per group, the new standard timer displays, and water count control, the MVP Hydra provides the ability to fine tune your coffee recipes on an even deeper level. Standard on the MVP Hydra is our unique bypass system that offers 4 programmable stages of pressure profiling- Preinfusion, Ramp Up, Full Pressure (9 bar extraction), and Ramp Down. You can set these stages to maximize the acids, sugars, and texture of your coffees. Using these stages allows far greater command of an espresso shot and affords the user the ability to get the very most of any particular roast profile.
The MVP maintains the epic standards set by the Cyncra, including Synesso’s unparalleled thermal stability, user-friendly controls, and reliability. Yet, Synesso knows that consistent repeatability is the essential need for all espresso machine owners and users. We are driven to continually search for better ways to make that vision a reality. Our MVP technology (patent pending) now provides incomparable tools that allow you to dial in your espresso recipes, save those parameters in seconds, and then perfectly repeat them on any group as many times as desired. With this new universal functionality, the Brew Mode can be changed at any time from full Manual Mode (M) to Manual Program Mode (MP), to Volumetric Mode (VP) at the group top level. This answers the need for volume specific dosing in cafes where speed and consistency are the paramount concerns, without sacrificing the ability to manually set various coffees to exact specifications. You no longer have to choose between control and repeatability. You can get it all from one machine.
Synesso S series are built to the same durability, temperature stability and high performance standard we’ve come to expect from all other Synesso machines. Low profile and smaller footprint, the Synesso S series are perfect for a smaller (5kg to 30kg) sized cafe, roastery QC labs or in an extremely coffee-centric lunchroom!
