Brewing with Barista Precision

The Sage Bambino Plus boasts a 54mm stainless steel portafilter, the industry standard size employed in professional machines. This ensures optimal pressure distribution and consistent extraction, culminating in a full-bodied espresso. The single and double shot baskets provide versatility, whether you require a single serving or a morning pick-me-up for two.

The Sage Bambino Plus utilises a 15-bar pressure pump, identical to the pressure employed in commercial machines, to guarantee consistent. This translates to rich, crema-topped espresso that rivals your favourite coffee shop.

The Sage Bambino Plus features an integrated water filter that enhances coffee quality. This filter removes impurities from tap water, ensuring a purer taste and allowing the rich flavours of your coffee beans to shine through. Additionally, by reducing mineral content, the filter helps prevent scale build-up, extending the machine's lifespan and reducing maintenance needs. Easy to install and replace, this water filter is a key feature for consistently great-tasting coffee and a well-maintained machine.

Milk Frothing Finesse

For those who relish milky coffee beverages such as cappuccinos and lattes, the Sage Bambino Plus features a commercial-grade steam wand. This wand enables the user to texture milk to create silky smooth micro-foam, the cornerstone of latte art. The adjustable steam pressure and ergonomic design make it effortless to achieve professional-looking results, even for those new to the art of milk frothing.

At Redber Coffee, we believe in  exploring the spectrum  of possibilities. We offer a variety of roast profiles for each coffee origin, catering to diverse palates. Whether you crave a bright and lively cup or a smooth and mellow experience, we have a roast curve that will tantalise your taste buds.

Beyond the Essentials

The Sage Bambino Plus transcends the realm of simply brewing espresso and frothing milk. Here are some additional functionalities:

  • Digital Temperature Control (PID): This ensures consistent brewing temperature for optimal flavour extraction. No more battling with bitter or under-extracted espresso!
  • Low-Pressure Pre-Infusion: This gentle pre-infusion fosters even saturation of the coffee grounds, resulting in a more balanced and flavourful espresso.
  • Automatic Shut-Off: For added peace of mind, the machine automatically shuts off after a period of inactivity.
  • Removable Drip Tray: This facilitates effortless cleaning of spills and splashes.
