Product ID: venus

Be the first to review this product

The Isomac Venus espresso and cappuccino machine fills the void between lower cost espresso machines and the higher priced professional grade machines. This means it is perfect for home and small office use. While there are a few direct competitors priced a little lower than the Venus, this machine stands out because of it slightly larger size and top to bottom stainless steel construction. The Venus is a beautiful machine to say the least. The polished housing, chrome cup railing on top, and the heavy-duty switches and indicator lights make the fancy professional grade machines look over their shoulder.

Details

Features of the Isomac Venus Espresso Machine:

A look under the hood shows a large brass boiler, brass fittings, stainless steel mesh protecting the water tubing, and top grade wiring and electrical fittings. 

Okay, so we have dazzled you with the look and the build of the machine, but no worries, the machine performs well too! In performance tests the Venus did very well in both steaming capacity (great for latte, mocha, and cappuccino lovers) and its ability to pull excellent espresso shots.

Heavy Duty Pump System from Start to Finish

The Venus uses a 52-watt vibratory pump that provides the exact pressures needed to deliver perfect espresso. The lines from the pump, to the boiler, and from the boiler to the grouphead are all commercial grade items, with a big, beefy piece of cast brass helping to complete the trip. Other machines may feel the need to advertise their BAR rating; the Venus doesn't have to - it's a given the machine has the power to spare.

No Nonsense Controls

The Venus features Four commercial-grade toggle switches with integrated indicator lights. The power switch is on the upper right far corner of the control panel.  The three switches on the left side of the control panel: control the brewing, hot water, and steaming functions of the machine.

Brewing Pressure Gauge

The pressure gauge on the front of the machine will monitor brewing pressures to ensure you are getting the best espresso shot.

Straightforward Powerful Steaming

The Venus doesn't come with froth-aiders or steaming gimmicks. Instead it features a two hole, chrome plated, brass steam wand that pushes out ample amounts of steam, which is capable of getting 7 ounces of milk up to proper temperatures in under 35 seconds. With the Venus, you don't get gimmicks or helpers - you get a serious, powerful machine that helps you become a serious, skilled Barista.

Quality Brass Parts

Inside the Venus you see something akin to more pro-consumer and commercial grade machines: brass everywhere. The Venus uses a 10 brass boiler, brass lines, and chromed brass grouphead to help maintain proper heat distribution so crucial to producing perfect espresso.

Commercial Grouphead

The well-designed grouphead for the Venus was influenced by Isomac's commercial line of espresso machines. Solid brass and chrome plating offer good temperature stability and consistent shots of espresso, not to mention durability. The filter screen evenly disperses water over the coffee grounds for proper extraction.

Large 10 Brass Boiler

It features one of the biggest boilers in the consumer marketplace - 10 ounces filled to the rim. This has many benefits for the consumer - better temperature stability, quicker recycling times, and when that boiler gets up to steaming temperatures, you'll think you have an old style steam locomotive in your kitchen.

Commercial-Grade Portafilter and Filter Baskets

The Venus ships with a heavy chrome plated portafilter with a dual spout and two commercial sized 58 mm filter baskets - the exact same ones used in the Isomac commercial line.

Removable Water Reservoir

This machine features a 3 liter capacity removable water reservoir that can be filled while the machine is operating, or removed for filling at the sink.

Heated Cup Stacking Surface

On top of the Venus, there is a polished stainless steel cup-stacking surface that is heated. If you're serious about being a skilled home barista, you will know that having warmed cups is a prerequisite to perfect espresso, and the Venus handles this job effortlessly.

Removable Drip & Cup Tray

The drip pan and cup tray are made of stainless steel, and they are removable for easy cleaning.

Stainless Steel Casing

One look at the Venus' outer hull and you know you own a serious espresso machine. No fancy designs or accruements for the Venus - just polished stainless steel, everywhere.

Instant Hot Water

This machine can replace your kettle under most circumstances with its hot water on demand feature. Simply activate the hot water switch and open the steam knob to get hot water instantly. Use hot water for making tea, Americanos, or other hot beverages.

Pressure Release System

Just like the commercial machines, the Isomac Venus features a three-way solenoid valve that instantly releases any built up pressure in the portafilter once you complete an espresso shot. This allows for instant reloading of the machine for another shot, and no mess or fuss when removing the portafilter.

Safety System

The Venus is equipped with three thermostats, including one specifically used to prevent the boiler from overheating if the machine is left unattended for long periods of time.

Accessories

Two stainless steel filter baskets for making either single or double shots of espresso, coffee tamper, measuring spoon, and an instruction manual.
