La San Marco changes the café concept

PRESENTING V6, ALLROUND REVOLUTION

V6 is the jewel in La San Marco’s crown. A professional lever model with a dual side work area: a one of a kind machine which shakes up the concept of a café, encouraging a new coffee drinking experience, that is more social, interactive and personal. The exclusive design, developed together with Bonetto Design, takes its inspiration from the automotive world, shining the spotlight on elaborate internal components and the design of the bodywork. The end result is in itself a tribute to the Italian coffee industry and above all, to that of traditional lever machines.

Six levers for coffee extraction and six dispensing groups, four steam wands and two for dispensing hot water, a dual sided work area for two baristas, one single machine. These are the figures behind the new V6, the latest lever machine by La San Marco, a historic Italian company located in Gradisca d’Isonzo (Gorizia). Since 1920, it has manufactured some of the best known espresso coffee machines and professional equipment in the world.

V6 represents a true revolution for the world of Italian espresso coffee

ts V shaped structure (hence the name) forms a double sided machine which shakes up the idea of a contemporary café and places the work of the barista, or in this case baristas, center stage. “ With V6 we want to go one step further, towards the future of coffee machines, not just in terms of technology, design, and safety, but also from the point of view of a genuine consumer experience” states Roberto Nocera, CEO of La San Marco “ V6 puts the art of coffee making back in the spotlight and is an invitation to rediscover the café as a place in which to socialize, meet with friends and exchange ideas.”

The extraordinary, one of a kind design is inspired by the lines of the motorsports world in the 1960s and 70s, designed by the prestigious Bonetto Design. “ Our work concentrates on combining the concepts of elegance, purity, and precision with mechanical and automotive tradition.” tells Marco Bonetto “ The lines are sculpted and dominant, but at the same time, they maintain a certain lightness thanks to the various transparent windows, in a perfect balance of weight”. Sculpted yet sturdy, V6 conveys all the power of its pulsing motor. The hydroformed steel bodywork with painted finish and tempered glass highlights the depth of the technical expertise of La San Marco in working materials and focuses on the sophistication of the components and meticulous precision of the inner workings.

The model is available in the six group version with three different finishes: pearl white Classic, black lava Avantgarde, and Trieste pale blue Elegance. The boiler comes in two different versions, with a choice of mirror finish stainless steel or gold plated copper while the hydraulic components are made of polished brass and copper. On a technological level, V6 has an exclusive LEVA CLASS® (Controlled Lever Anti Shock System) patent and PID system to control and electronically adjust the water temperature in the boiler

With V6, La San Marco once again confirms its position as a leading innovator in the professional coffee machine industry and especially, the world of traditional lever machines. It has presented the world of coffee with a true gem, the result of a prestigious made in Italy manufacturing tradition, dating back almost a century
