The SL 90 is a "purist" machine with a bit of cutting edge technology built in.
This machine will make the production of all of your favorite coffee house drinks like cappuccino, lattes, café mochas and more.
This Swiss masterpiece has all the features of the SL 70, with the added benefit of digital control over the espresso shot volume; allowing you to select a program for your own perfect shot. Classified as an "automatic machine", we prefer to call it a traditional machine for 2004 and beyond.
The SL 90 has an initial heat up time of just over two minutes. It will brew a single shot of espresso in 15-20 seconds and a double shot in 20-25 seconds; however, these times can be programmed to your liking. Initial heat up time for the steaming function is 48 seconds, with an average heat time of 58 seconds for an 8-ounce cappuccino and a 12-ounce latte takes 96 seconds.
These are impressive performance figures for a machine in this class. If you desire espresso topped with a thick layer of crema, the SL 90 delivers. It’s specially designed coffee basket ensures the proper espresso extraction regardless of the grind of the coffee beans or tamping pressure of the coffee grounds, thus yielding a perfect layer of thick golden crema (foam), which is the hallmark of perfectly extracted espresso.
The SL 90 permits you to use your own pre-ground coffee or single serving espresso pods.
The SL 90 is hand built in Switzerland and clearly shows this quality and attention to detail. It features simple to use controls, the most powerful water pump in its class at 19 BAR, large 3.2 quart water reservoir and a thick walled brass boiler. Due to the large boiler, the SL 90 produces an abundance of steam for making large lattes, café mochas, and cappuccinos.
We recommend either the Solis Maestro or Solis Maestro Plus coffee grinders with the SL 90 for a complete coffee bar package in your home or office.
