The Victoria Arduino coffee machines have such a personal style that only an original communication is able to "explain the character". That is why their communication is left to the language of art.
The manifest symbol of Victoria Arduino –that which has become an important "piece" in Italian and International graphic design– is dated 1922; it represents an elegant traveller who, leaning out of a leaving train, makes himself an espresso using a Victoria Arduino, model Venus.
The author of the manifesto is Leonetto Cappiello, painter, designer, posterist among the most appreciated and known (1875-1942). For the main Italian Companies, Cappiello made almost three thousand commercial posters. Today this collection - that also has value as a historical witness - is collected in the main graphic and art museums in Italy and all over the world.
The Venus bar is the classical, vertical style, espresso machine made famous by La Victoria Arduino in the early 1920’s. Today, it is still hand crafted of high polished or copper with a Lacquer finish to deter tarnishing, and incorporates all of our many years of experience. Appropriately named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus, one can’t help but fall in love with the Venus Bar’s natural Beauty and method of preparing espresso, cappuccino, and other specialty coffee drinks; the “barista” turns a hand crafted, spring loaded, solid brass/copper lever which in turn, activates a semi-automatic, push button control to turn, each espresso group ON and OFF. The achievement of the Venus Bar is in its boiler and espresso-group design to minimize the loss of heat to each espresso-group, which is a critical factor in making a high quality creamy cup of espresso; the espresso groups on the Venus Bar are directly attached to the boiler. This design allows the Venus Bar’s boiler to operate under less pressure (which will make it last longer and produce less strain on the heating element) while maintaining the appropriate amount of heat for preparing espresso, cappuccino, and other specialty coffee drinks, The Venus Bar models are available with 1, 2, or 3 espresso-groups.
Standard Features: Semi-automatic operation. Espresso-grouping, espresso-group handle, and boiler flanges are made using, heavy gauge, solid brass because of the conductivity and uniformity of heat that brass provides over other alloy metals, Vertical boiler of solid copper which is extra heavy, nickel plated, internally and external, to deter water fowling. “Double Circulating Heat Exchanger” allows direct infusion of fresh water from the main water line (instead of using water from the boiler) and circulates the fresh water throughout all espresso-groups, regardless of which espresso-group is activated , to ensure a uniform temperature throughout the machine. Spring loaded safety valve on the boiler and the exchanger. Fresh water is automatically drawn into the boiler. Water inlet is controlled by an electronic control unit and a solenoid valve. The water flow to the espresso-group is controlled by a self priming motor pump to ensure consistent water flow and pressure. Large, easy to use, knobs to operate hot water and steam wands. One hot water and one high volume steam wand with anti-suction valves to deter milk from back flowing into the boiler are standard.
Options: Chrome plated body.
Hand lever operation.

Horizontal boiler of solid copper which is extra heavy, nickel plated, internally and externally, to deter water fowling. Large, easy to use, knobs to operate hot water and steam wands. One hot water and two high volume steam wands with anti-suction valves to deter milk from back flowing into the boiler are standard.
