VBM Domobar Junior Digital Heat Exchange Espresso Machine, Stainless Steel

Domobar Junior is designed for coffee connoisseurs who want to enjoy the perfect cup in the comfort of their own home. It is an upgrade from the 2010 VBM Domobar Junior and features a new design with customizable side panel colors and a new OLED digital display for programming all settings and give more simplicity to your machine. This machine is made of stainless steel but is also available with additional costs in Beige, Bordeaux, Light Blue and Red.

  • Heat Exchange System
    Copper, insulation: The boiler is copper, which retains heat better than stainless steel. Typically copper boilers are more susceptible to limescale when you compare to stainless steel boilers. Therefore, we highly recommend using a water softener. The manufacturer wraps the boiler with insulation for maximum heat retention.
    Pull a shot & steam milk at the same time: Steam is always readily available. Hence, there is no wait time going from coffee to steam mode. Works well if entertaining a small group of people.

    Tank/Reservoir System
    Water tank level sensor: An empty tank symbol and red LED light shows up on the Digital Interace when it is time to refill your tank.
    Particle filter: Protects the machine from any unseen particles from entering the boiler. You can remove this filter if you are installing an inline water softener.
    Auto-shutoff: Prevents burning out the heating element. The water tank sits on a spring-activated plate. Once the water is low, the plate depresses the tank microswitch which turns off the heating element.

    Separate Wands for Steam & Hot Water
    Multi-directional: Allows for more movement and flexibility. The wands connect to the valves on an angle to the side for even more flexibility. As a result, there is less risk of burning oneself from the exposed grouphead. Furthermore, the steam performance is very efficient, which will result in making excellent espresso!
    2-hole steam tip: Allows for a slow gradual build-up of microfoam.
    Rotational knobs: Allows for easier control of the intensity.

    Quality Design
    Customizable side panels: The VBM Domobar Junior Digital NOW has a variety of side panel designs that you can stylize your machine with. Check out the different customizable side panels we have to offer!
    Ergonomic knobs and levers: Contributes to accurate water dispersion and adds some personality to the VBM Domobar Junior Digital!
    Synthetic drip tray: The drip tray on this espresso machine is glowing! Less risk of scratches on this material, unlike on metal drip trays. Additionally, the drip tray has a float that tracks the water levels. Dishwasher-safe.
    Front and feet: Stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish.

    Classic VBM E61 Grouphead
    58mm grouphead: Thermosiphonic circulation group in cromed-brass, available with manual controls (lever) or electronic.
    Constantly heated: Hot water circulates from the heat exchanger through the grouphead and back to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot. As a result the grouphead temperature constant and stable when you compare to other groupheads that have a built-in heating element.
    Pre-infusion: Lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch that turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds. Pulling the lever halfway up will open the valve to allow water into the grouphead without activating the pump. Please note that true pre-infusion requires the direct water connection whereby the water pressure from the waterline creates true pre-infusion.

    Vibratory Pump
    Efficient: 41 watts, rated up to 15 bar with air valve bypass. You only need 9 bar to extract perfect espresso, and wattage has no correlation to longevity.
    Cost-effective: Pumps will degrade in performance over time. Replacing a vibration pump will cost less than a rotary vane pump.

    NEW Digital Interface
    OLED Digital Display: Adjust all your settings on the digital touchpad. After turning the main switch to the ON position, the display shows the selected function (coffee delivery), and the temperature and time of coffee delivery. 128×64 px.
    Button Settings: Shows machine warm-up status. Green means the machine is ready, orange means the machine is loading, and red means the machine is in alarm. Additionally, there is an LED mode for temperature increase and decrease.
    Shows ECO Mode: Use this to increase the espresso machine’s temperature when idle to save energy. After 2 hours of not using the machine, the shutdown symbol will show up on the display.
    Alarm Codes: If there is little to no water inside the boiler, then code E01 shows on the display and an LED light appears in red. Moreover, if there is a probe malfunction, then code E02 appears on the display and an LED light appears in red.

    Espresso Machine Warning
    Electrical warningTo avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.

    Water warningTo increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.

    Descaling warningWe do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.
