Introduced by Faema circa 1961 on the E61 machine, the precursor to this solenoid operated version group head pictured here revolutionized the espresso industry by providing a thermally stable method of espresso preparation.
Today the E61 group or versions of it can be found on several brands of machines and still manages to be one of the best groups available.
The E61 group is a massive chunk of brass, when assembled and ready to place on a machine it weighs in at 9 lbs. This weight mass contributes to its ability to maintain a consistent and stable temperature. The other feature that helps with temperature stability is the integrated thermo-siphon. This is a hydraulic process of water circulation that reduces hot spots within the group head. A very simple system that is worth its weight in creama.
