The VBM Domobar Double Boiler espresso machine is one of the few dual boiler espresso machines designed specifically for the US electric system. Never drawing more than 15 amps this Domobar's advanced power management system automatically maintains the proper power to both boilers, ensuring perfect temperature.

Now in its fourth generation, the VBM Domobar Double is proving itself the leader in home double-boiler espresso machines!

• Double boilers - the user can operate the coffee boiler and steam boiler independently of each other (or at the same time). Dual boilers allow steam and hot water to be help separately from the water being used for brewing espresso. Like 202F. Instead of 201F for espresso? No Problem! The adjustment can be easily made right from the front panel at the push of a button!
• Boiler Insulation - Both boilers are now insulated to save energy and further increase temperature stability.
 Four position power switch (Off, Brew only, Both, Steam only) offers flexibility and power savings. Just make espresso? No problem! Just turn off the steam boiler by selecting the Espresso-Only position.
• PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) temperature control – More than just a thermostat! With a computer controlling the temperature adjustment of the two boilers you get precise control. This is critical for quality espresso. New in Version 4, the PID also manages the steam/hot water boiler. {** unsure about this next part**} A safety pressurestat makes sure that the steam boiler stays within safe parameters.
• Power management control systems (PCMS) - Two boiler, multiple heating elements and a powerful pump makes the VBM DD a powerful machine. But the PCMS regulates the amount of power to each heating element ensuring no more than 15 amps are drawn by the machine at any time. That means the Vibiemme DD will operate from a standard household 15amp outlet.
 Heavy duty true Faema E61 grouphead – The Vibiemme company was founded by the creators of the famed E-61 group, and over the years they have created the gold standard for the rest of the manufacturers to follow. Their massive brass group is designed for dependable service and ease of maintenance. The thermal siphon keeps the group hot for improved temperature stability.
• Commercial-grade motor and rotary vane pump - Smooth delivery of water to the coffee, quieter than a vibratory pump, and you have the choice of using the internal reservoir or connecting the Vibiemme DD directly to an existing water line. Imagine never having to fill a reservoir or running out of water in the middle of an extraction again! Included is a stainless steel braided hose with 3/8" male thread if you choose the direct-connection option. A lever on the bottom of the machines allows switching back and forth between the options. This makes descaling an easy matter if you choose to direct connect.
• Extremely large stainless steel drip tray which can be easily removed for cleaning. The new covering grate is designed for less splashing. Grate stays on machine when pulling out drip tray. The drip tray can be used as a standard, pull-out-and-empty design, but also includes the fittings and hose to plumb the tray to a drain (consult a plumber for local codes). Along with a plumbed in water supply, this option can make for hassle-free brewing!
