Posted Sat Jan 31, 2004, 8:55am Subject: Re: Where to buy Expobar in the EU?
Yes, Mats, they have vibe pumps, Ulka or the like. It´s a typo of some kind on the crem site I guess, because "volumetric" is a term used for rotary pumps AFAIK. The Expobars are very much like the ECM Giotto, the Isomac Tea/Millenium, Vibiemme Domobar Super and others of the same kind - machines that are supposed to be easy to set up in your average kitchen or office. No need for plumbing, thus, and that means they can´t use a "volumetric" pump.
Technical details can be found at <http://www.wholelattelove.com/compare.cfm?SubCategoryID=1> (choose the machines you want to compare, then click on "features") , and other technical details in Mark´s great 'first look' on the pulser, <http://coffeegeek.com/proreviews/firstlook/expobarpulser>
The machine also exists in Sweden. It is sold rebranded as "Coffeequeen Crema" at the comparably outrageous price of 12.000 SEK.
P.S. Du kan kontakta Coffeequeen direkt (http://www.coffeequeen.se) för att hitta närmsta återförsäljare. Det är alltså "Coffeequeen Crema"-maskinen det är fråga om. Inte för att det skulle fresta mig att handla den för det priset av dem, men bara så att du vet... De har återförsäljare i Sthlm/Gbg/Mlö åtminstone. D.S
