Expobar Brewtus IV and IV-R

The legendary Brewtus, now in its fourth iteration, is Expobar’s ultimate home espresso machine. This machine is built to last. Due to the improvements made with each new version, the Brewtus has proven itself to be very reliable. The dual boiler design with two 1.5 litre copper boilers offers plenty of volume and temperature stability for the coffee aficionado.

A unique feature of the Brewtus is the pre-heating of the brew boiler water through a heat-exchanger in the steam boiler. The Gicar PID controls the temperature of the brew water and is conveniently displayed beside the grouphead.

Brewtus IV
The Brewtus IV is the lowest cost double boiler E61 grouphead machine on the market. Compare its specifications against a new entry on the market, the Profitec Pro 600, and you can see the value. For a few hundred dollars less, you get 2 x 1.5 litre copper boilers versus 0.75 and 1.0 litre stainless steel boilers. Yes agreed, the Pro 600 looks good but for performance you need to check under the hood.

Brewtus IV-R
With the rotary pump version of the Brewtus it is the same value proposition. Compare this machine to other rotary pump dual boiler machines and you will find out that they are at least 25% more expensive. Why not invest that savings into a better grinder?
