The Kees Van Der Westen Spirit
The Spirit represents the apex of Kees' hand crafted line of espresso machines. The machine is truly stunning, making it an exceptional show piece for the bar. Featuring two external pumps, multiple steam boilers with over-rated heating elements, and precise temperature control of each boiler, it's designed to exceed the requirements of even the most exacting coffee programs. With all that power, the built-in eco-mode ensures power efficiency during low-demand periods.
Key Standard Features
Heat exchange + Multi-boiler technology - The Spirit has one large steam boiler and exceptionally large independent brew boilers (2.1 ltr) for each group head. Brew boilers are fed by water preheated via heat exchanger for exceptional temperature stability
Independent PID Control - Each boiler is algorithmically controlled and programmable via digital display
Saturated group heads - ensures consistent temperature from boiler to coffee puck
Equipped with 2 external pumps - One feeds steam boiler and one feeds the brew boilers. This ensures group head brew pressure isn’t impacted by refilling the steam boiler
Shot timers in full view above each group - makes perfect shot times easy to track
Pre-infusion pressure profiling - pressure slowly ramps up to 9 bars, minimizing channeling and producing more consistent extraction
Illuminated rear panel - showcase the Spirit or customize with your own cafe logo
Intuitive operation by levers - two programmable shot volumes for simple usage
Energy saving Eco mode - temperature can be programmed to drop during off-peak hours to save energy; each boiler can be switched on and off separately
Auto-back-flush program - groups pressurize and discharge multiple times for an internal wash-out
Self-bleeding groups - shutdown cleaning is quick and easy
Heat neutral polymer dispersion block - outside parts stay cool and easy to clean
Integrated safety features - heavily protected heating element, additional temperature probe and 120s time-out of solenoid to protect staff and customers from accidents
Elevated position of body - easy cleaning of bar surface, yet low enough to allow comfortable barista-customer contact
Customizations and Optional Features
Idro-matic pre-infusion - This adjustable progressive pre-infusion cylinder offers a wide variation of starting pressures to play with.
Volumetric Touchpad - four more automatic shot volumes can be readily selected
