Caffé italiano - Coffee Machines
Unlike similar units in the high-end, E61 grouphead dual purpose single boiler category, this is the only model known to have an automatic water refill of the internal boiler. On other similar machines, the operator must always run water through the steam wand to insure that the internal boiler is filled - so the heating element does not damage due to lack of water. On the Fiorenzato Colombina, the auto water refill circuit monitors the water level in the boiler and refills it as necessary. If the water reservoir empties, the machine will shut the power to the heating element. Therefore, this machine can be left on ALL day (of course, a surge suppressor should always accompany this machine's outlet)!
