With its simple, straightforward operation and small footprint on the countertop, the Via Venezia creates a deliciously rich cup of espresso without complications. The stainless-steel finish is impervious to rust and a perfect complement to contemporary kitchen decor. The patented pressurized portafilter reduces the workload of the home barista by helping to regulate the grind setting and tamp pressure. Just three large buttons on the control panel (On/Off, Brew and Steam) control all the Via Venezia's functions for easy operation right out of the box. The stainless-steel boiler and heating element are food-safe and designed to safely withstand daily use. The Panarello frothing wand makes it easy to steam and texture milk for lattes and cappuccinos. The ESE pod adaptor allows convenient, no clean-up espresso pods to be used with the portafilter. 15 pumps of pressure ensure an espresso topped with a coffeehouse-quality crema. Keep up to 6 espresso cups warm and at the ready with the integral cup warmer. Drip tray can be removed for convenient cleaning. Compact and sturdy stainless-steel construction. Made in Italy.
