Building on the numerous tools provided by the MVP, the MVP Hydra offers even more ways to simultaneously increase control and repeatability in espresso making.
In addition to the universal group heads with changeable brew modes, 6 program positions per group, the new standard timer displays, and water count control, the MVP Hydra provides the ability to fine tune your coffee recipes on an even deeper level.
The original Hydra was developed to experiment with and explore the role that pressure plays in espresso extraction. Mark Barnett, Synesso’s designer & founder, redesigned the water inlet system, adding individual pumps and motors per group to make each group into its own autonomous brewing system. Doing so meant uninterrupted pressure on every group, even in the highest volume environment.
That’s not all. Standard on the MVP Hydra is our unique bypass system that offers 4 programmable stages of pressure profiling- Preinfusion, Ramp Up, Full Pressure (9 bar extraction), and Ramp Down. You can set these stages to maximize the acids, sugars, and texture of your coffees. Using these stages allows far greater command of an espresso shot and affords the user the ability to get the very most of any particular roast profile.

Now, with the MVP technology you can perfect all of your recipes with manual control, save them to any available program position, and run them for as long as desired. If only small changes are needed, you have the ability to fine tune ANY parameter on the wired controller. This machine does a lot. For a simple look at how it all works :
If you're looking for a way to further individualize your machine or tie it in more directly with your unique cafe, roastery, or lab design, we have a full spectrum of colors available for powder coating. We partner with a local company who specializes in the technique, and we use RAL values to assist the selection process. Below are some sample color tiles, and images of machines we have customized in the past, but you can also refer to this RAL List for more options and inspiration. *Please keep in mind that appearance of colors may differ on various screens*Learn More
