Title (EN) SYSTEM, METHOD, AND APPARATUS FOR REGULATING FLOW RATE IN AN ESPRESSO MACHINE
(FR) SYSTÈME, PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DESTINÉS À RÉGULER LE DÉBIT DANS UNE MACHINE À CAFÉ EXPRESSO
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments are directed towards regulating flow rate in an espresso machine, during a multi-phase brewing process which includes a pre-brew and an extraction phase. During the pre-brew phase, coffee grounds are slowly pre-wetted and/or out-gassed with a first volume of water delivered at a first flow rate. During the extraction phase, a second volume of water is delivered, at a. second flow rate, to extract espresso, where the second volume is delivered at a generally greater pressure than the first volume. The second flow rate is greater than the first flow rate.
(FR)L'invention concerne, dans ses modes de réalisation, la régulation du débit d'une machine à café expresso, pendant un processus de préparation multiphase qui inclut une phase de préparation préalable et une phase d'extraction. Pendant la phase de préparation préalable, du café moulu est lentement préhumidifié et/ou dégazé avec un premier volume d'eau délivré à un premier débit. Pendant la phase d'extraction, un second volume d'eau est délivré, à un second débit, pour extraire l'expresso, le second volume étant délivré à une pression généralement supérieure qu'au premier volume. Le second débit est supérieur au premier débit.
