Overview

Perfect your morning coffee routine with the Solis Barista Perfetta Espresso Machine. Built for the home espresso journey, the Perfetta offers an excellent starting point for new baristas without sacrificing the tools more experienced enthusiasts need. This careful design means you get labor-saving niceties like programmable shot times, auto-purge solenoids, and optional pressurized baskets for pre-ground coffee or pods—alongside features like a front-and-center pressure gauge, single hole manual steam wand, and easy access to hot water for tea or Americanos. Even the Perfetta's included accessories carry this attention to detail with just-right sizing and high quality finishes.

Features
  • Compact Footprint: Measuring in at a slim 6 inches wide, the Solis will fit in any kitchen or counter.
  • Basket Options: Brew options abound with nonpressurized, pressurized, and ESE pod baskets to fit your mornings.
  • Programmable Shot Time: Set and save single and double shot times for one touch espressos.
  • Adjustable Temperature: The electronically controlled temperature can be dialed up or down to your tastes.
  • Classic Steam Wand: A classic single hole steam wand puts milk temperature and texture in your hands.
  • Pressure Gauge: An inline manometer gives exacting feedback to help you keep your coffee dialed in.
    • Pros
      • Excellent Espresso: The Solis brews hot and gives excellent feedback to make the most of every shot.
      • Compact Case: The Solis' small size makes it an excellent choice for those who don't want to sacrifice a quarter of their kitchen for a cup of coffee.
      • Hot Water: Unlike other compact machines on the market, the Solis offers easy on-demand hot water through the steam wand.
    • Cons
      • Hot Hot Heat: Even with the machine's auto-purge functionality, you'll still want to run some water through the group before brewing to get temperatures down.
      • Compact Case: The Solis' slim size means a small cup tray and a smaller drip tray; a fair trade for the footprint but still fast to fill up.
  • How Does it Compare?
    Compared to other compact machines on the market, the Solis offers much more hands-on operation and feedback: unpressurized baskets, manual steaming, and a real manometer.

About Solis

Solis espresso machines and grinders offer two perfect puzzle pieces for your home brewing setup. On one hand, the Solis Perfetta espresso machine is a fantastic way to start (or upgrade) your home espresso setup. This powerful, adaptable espresso machine is full of high quality features you'd normally expect to find on more expensive machines, including pressurized and non-pressurized portafilter options. The Solis Scala coffee grinder is a great entry level grinder perfect for drip brewing and pour over. On the low end of its grind scale, the Scala can grind fine enough for pressurized espresso, which makes it a great first grinder as you discover your favorite way to brew.
