Victoria Arduino Adonis

Like the famous mythological figure, the distinctive feature of the Victoria Arduino Adonis is its stunning and timeless beauty. And when combined with the very latest technology, the result is an espresso machine with a truly distinctive design that delivers beverages of incomparable quality.

The Adonis T3 incorporates the patented T3 technology, an innovative PID system developed for use on the World Barista Championship machine. Digital pressostats and temperature sensors instantly send information to the control unit through multiple independent PIDs which actively manage 3 separate parameters, in order to grant maximum thermal stability.

There are separate PID’s for adjusting the water temperature of each of several thermal insulated stainless steel boilers (main steam boiler and individual group water boilers) and separate PIDs for controlling the temperature of each independently heated group. Each individual group can be independently adjusted to a specific temperature in increments of 0.1 degrees, allowing for maximum extraction of different espresso blends if required by the Barista or Coffee Roaster.

Colour Choice

To match the mood of your establishment, you can select either the Adonis Steelux (with a stainless steel finish) or the Adonis Vintage in Pearl White or Victoria Red. Adonis may also be colour matched to suit your specific décor using the RAL colour chart.

Optional special order:
available in any custom colour of your choice

HEES guarantees a thick and creamy espresso shot. The cutting-edge High Efficiency Extraction System increases the amount of crema and aroma in the cup, even if the barista is not a seasoned professional. HEES is an innovative double infusion system that compensates for tamping errors and eliminates channeling, guaranteeing a perfect and uniform extraction.

Elegant and Sophisticated. Adonis truly exemplifies Italian craftsmanship. The exterior finish of the Adonis undergoes a twelve-step painting process to which three phases of hand-polishing are added in order to achieve an optimal chromatic shine. Adonis is accented with Chrome group heads & trim and a backlit logo; hand-stitched portafilters are an optional extra.

Ergonomic. The high exposed groups will not only fit larger cup sizes, but they are easy to see and access without bending over, conveniently well-lit by built-in LEDs that light the work tray area. The groups are activated by soft-touch silicon buttons which are back-lit and laid out in a unique petal-like pattern that is both simple and intuitive for the Barista to see and use.

The portafilter handles are inclined downwards to make the hand's position more natural when holding it, while the 12 lb brew groups are designed to precise engineering standards to allow for smooth locking and unlocking of portafilters, easing pressure on the Barista’s hands and wrists. The steam wands can maneuver 360 degrees for ease of use with any size steaming pitcher, and the standard Cool Touch steam wands are safer for the Barista to maneuver.

Efficient and Simple. Adonis is an “automatic” espresso machine that assures consistency regardless of the operator, by pre-programming the espresso volume and the exact water temperature. The adjustable PID is an innovative Digital Pressostat that controls the boiler water temperature and bar pressure, which the Barista can read and adjust directly from the LCD display panel.

Intelligent. Features like automatic back flushing, PID, grind check, shot time, and maintenance programming make Adonis both easy to use and highly functional. The optional “Smart” Wand steams milk to a pre-programmed temperature and consistency – perfect for use by beginners or for making hot chocolates. 

Versatile. Adonis is available in a 2 or 3-group automatic version to suit your needs.
