Detailed Product Features:
Completely Automatic Espresso & Coffee Brewing
Love espresso but have a busy schedule? Hate to clean up? This is your machine. Just press the button and the One Touch Ultra will automatically grind your coffee beans, and dispense freshly brewed, rich and flavorful coffee into your cup. Press the brew button once for a single espresso or coffee.
Utilize the enormous flexibility of the this machine’s programming options by varying the water volume up to 12 ounces and the ability to select up to 16 grams of ground coffee per brewing cycle. By experimenting with the water volume and grams of ground coffee you can fine-tune your coffee and easily program these parameters into the memory. Take it one step further by programming the coffee temperature for the ultimate cup of coffee. However, feel free to utilize the factory settings as well if you wish.
Fully Automated Milk Frothing System
The One Touch Ultra is one of the few coffee and espresso centers that features a built-in automatic milk frothing system for making textbook cappuccinos. Although this machine comes equipped with a milk frothing wand for heating milk for lattes and café mochas, the automatic milk frothing system yields perfect foam for cappuccinos. It works by drawing milk out of the milk cooler, combines the milk with steam, and then froths the milk which then is deposited right into your coffee mug.
One push of a button is enough – you’ll never again have to froth milk by hand – thanks to the integrated milk-frother the Ultra “One Touch Cappuccino” deals with everything easily.
The fresh, cold milk is kept hygienically and impeccably in a mini-fridge (optional) or cold storage container positioned next to the Ultra “One Touch Cappuccino” and connected through a tube directly to the milk-frother. When you are not using the container, simply store it in the refrigerator.
Multi-Function Digital Screen
It’s good to keep tabs on your machine. With a quick glance at the digital screen, you’ll see all the functions and options. Do you want to brew one cup or two? Is your machine in the automatic rinsing or cleaning cycle? Is it grinding or brewing? It’s all on the readout display. This versatile machine is also multilingual and can be programmed in 14 languages.
4 Pre-Set Buttons for Cup Size Selection
Getting a great cup of your favorite coffee is as easy as one, two, three. Press a button for a single or double shot of espresso. You can brew a small, medium, or large cup of coffee and vary the strength to your taste. Just press the button and within 30-40 seconds you will be enjoying a perfect beverage. If you want a perfect cappuccino, simply press the cappuccino button. The machine will automatically froth the milk and then combine it with freshly brewed espresso!
Pre-Ground Coffee Funnel
This option allows you to pour pre-ground coffee into a funnel that is accessed by lifting a small lid on top of the machine. This feature is perfect when there is someone in the crowd who wants a decaffeinated espresso and there are only caffeine espresso beans in the machine, or if you wish to sample other blends of coffee. After making a cup of coffee with the pre-ground option, the machine automatically resets back to the beans held in the machine. It’s all up to taster’s choice.
Special Pre-infusion Brew System Cycle
Pre-infusion allows you to get maximum flavor from the brewing process. This advanced system takes the newly ground coffee beans from the internal One Touch Ultra coffee grinder and correctly tamps the coffee. Next comes “pre-infusion.” To optimize the flavor extraction, a special step injects a little hot water into the freshly ground coffee, in order to soak it and let it swell up. This is done just before the actual brew cycle commences. The grounds are pre-soaked and then brewed before being discarded automatically into the internal dump box. The machine then resets itself for the next brewing cycle.
Additional Product Features, Maintenance & Information:
Professional Quality Coffee Grinder
Proper grinding is at the core of excellent coffee production. The One Touch Ultra has a built-in, commercial-grade coffee grinder, the same type used by the professionals. Pushing the brew button sets the cycle in motion with the grinder measuring out the correct amount of beans for the selection made and then grinding it to specifications.
Built-in 2.4 Liter Water Tank
The One Touch Ultra water reservoir can easily be refilled while it is still on the machine or by removing it with the easy-grip handle and filling it at the kitchen tap. When the water runs low, the digital display will remind you when to refill it.
For Perfect Coffee Extraction - a Powerful Pump
Delivering a maximum pressure of 16 bars, this on board water pump pulls the maximum flavor from the coffee beans.
Coffee Bean Storage Hopper & Internal Dump Box
Keeping ½ pounds of beans fresh and ready for grinding is the built in, lidded coffee bean hopper. This large capacity allows up to 30 cups of coffee to be prepared before refilling is needed. When the coffee grounds are spent, the machine delivers them to the internal dump box, which can hold up to 24 expended coffee portions. It’s easy to remove and clean.
Stainless Steal Dual Boiler Heavy Duty Heating System
One of the reasons this the One Touch Ultra is great for anything from small commercial settings to home or office use, is its durable dual heating system. It provides for continuous use or a lot of servings over a short time period
Adjustable Beverage Dispensing Nozzle
This coffee dispensing nozzle moves up or down to accept cup sizes up to 4 inches high.
Heated Cup Stacking Surface
Located on the top of this machine is a heated surface made of non-stick metal that allows you to stack up those espresso cups and keep them toasty. Using the on-screen functions, you can turn this feature on or off.
Getting into your espresso machine for cleaning and maintenance is important for the long life of your machine. The swivel base makes it easy to access all sides of your machine to remove the water tank and open the side service door.
Cleaning & Maintenance of Components
In order to keep the inside of your machine healthy, your machine must be cleaned periodically. Scale buildup from naturally occurring minerals in your water can build up on sensitive components like the inside of the boiler, which left unchecked can cause considerable damage to the machine. By descaling your machine every two-three months, your machine will last for many trouble-free years.
Solis espresso machine cleaner can be purchased from us or by calling the support number in your user guide.
The machine will tell you when it’s time to activate the self-clean system by displaying a message on the digital screen. After adding our cleaner, just press the clean button. The machine will take it from there. Descaling and general cleaning is important even if you have a sophisticated water filter system, and especially if you use well water.
Used coffee grounds are collected in the grounds dump box, which can hold up to 30 spent portions of coffee before emptying is required, and a message will appear on screen to let you know it needs to be emptied. Waste water left over from the rinsing cycles is stored in removable drip tray that simply pulls out from the machine and reinserts in seconds. All components such as the used grounds container, drip tray, and water tank can be hand washed with regular soap and water.
Removable Internal Brew System – Cleanup Is Easy
The patented removable internal brewing system (brew group) has been tested millions of times throughout the world. It only takes a simple gesture for it to be quickly and easily removed from the machine and cleaned. Just rinse it under running water to remove all traces of dirt and coffee residues, which when left inside the machine, change the flavor of the coffee and interfere with the correct functioning of the brew group. In this way, the quality of the finest espresso never alters.
Installation & Accessories
Plug it in and the One Touch Ultra is ready to go. No fuss, no muss, no special plumbing for water intake or discharge and no special electrical outlets are required. This model can not be plumbed to a water hook-up; it must use the internal water reservoir. If you need this feature, please see the Solis Ultra One Touch model, as it has a water hook-up feature. Detailed instructions on the optimum care and operation of your machine is included with the purchase along with a brewing group maintenance tool and a coffee grinder cleaning brush.
