The Alpha Dominche Steampunk 4.1
The award-winning Alpha Dominche Steampunk 4.1 is a hand crafted next-generation coffee brewer designed for brewing the best single-cup coffees and teas in the world. This versatile machine offers a new way to brew up to four different single-cup coffees and/or teas simultaneously with the most repeatable consistent brew method to date.
The Steampunk 4.1 allows the baristas to set specific brew parameters that ensure the most repeatable, flavorful extraction in every cup. Its advanced controls empower baristas to set brew temperature, time, volume, agitation cycles, and extraction. Using this brew method baristas can produce and explore flavor profiles similar to those produced by a range of brew processes – from French press to pour-over – while also uncovering new profiles you won’t find anywhere else.
Each machine is designed, manufactured, and hand assembled in the United States using only the highest quality parts and materials. Alpha Dominche does all final production, research and development, engineering, design, and marketing under one roof in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Cloud based consistency, via electronically metered temperature and flow control, combined with precise recipe parameters allow users to consistently reproduce complex recipes for a perfect cup and then share them globally on the Steampunk network. Temperature can be set any where from 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 Celsius) to 210 degrees Fahrenheit (99 Celsius) and individual cup size can be set up to 16 ounces (475 milliliters). The cloud based recipe sharing system allows for recipes to be shared globally with the push of a button.
Powered by a 5790 watt element and a 20 liter stainless steel boiler, the Steampunk 4.1 can brew 4 different beverages simultaneously allowing skilled baristas to produce up to 60 perfectly brewed coffees or teas per hour. Individual recipe times can be set up to as long as 300 seconds, yet typically set around 75 seconds.
The unique design of the Steampunk allows customers to see their coffee or tea brewing throughout the visually engaging brew process. The Steampunk offers the ability to see the process of coffee de-gassing and tealeaves unfolding inside the crucible glass.
The heart of the Steampunk interface is the proprietary Mincher application. The Mincher app runs on a Google Nexus 7 tablet that is directly connected to the machine. The barista-controlled parameters include volume, exposure time, temperature, agitation, filter type, temperature, extraction, and multiple steeps. The Steampunk’s Mincher app gives the barista the ability to create, save, and share recipes making it the most repeatable brew method on the market.
The pre-programmed automated rinse cycle provides a fast and thorough cleaning process for the brew crucibles.
The body of the Steampunk 4.1 measures 36 inches wide by 30.5 inches high by 28.5 inches deep.
The Steampunk 4.1 uses a 220V 30AMP single-phase electrical input.
Water pressure between 40-70 PSI, flow rate greater than 3/4 gal/min, water inlet = 3/8 inch O.D. tube.
