Coffee sensor E61 coffee group
This is the latest version of the famous Coffee sensor digital thermometer for E61 coffee groups. It is now all black, has a shorter tip for even more accurate reading and now fits Vibiemme.
The sensor shows idle group temperature and extraction temperature.
It is ideal for retro fitting your coffee machine so you can monitor the temperature of the coffee groups.
A big issue with coffee, is the temperature that the coffee is extracted. Knowing the temperature of the group when brewing will help prevent burning speciality coffees.
The ideal temperature is 88ºC - 94ºC.
Some coffees burn at 90ºC - like 100% arabica speciality types.
Espresso blends are more robust and can go as far as 94ºC

Choose Celsius or Fahrenheit readings.
The Coffee Sensor Thermometer is located close to the coffee puck, so the readings the sensor gives you are a little bit different comparing to the actual temperature of the water that hits the puck. add +2 degrees Celsius to the readings to calculate a more accurate extraction temperature.
The readings can vary between different espresso machine manufacturers, due the angle of the sensor in the group head.
