Included with the 9Barista Espresso Machine as standard, the Heat Transfer Plate is made from a single piece of aluminium and is designed to most efficiently transfer heat from your stove to the 9Barista.
Finished in black, the Plate will naturally change to red and then silver after some use, as shown in the gallery image. This is perfectly normal, and is a useful indicator that the plate is providing your machine with enough heat.
NOTE: This plate will work on gas, electric and ceramic cooktops, but not induction; for use on induction cooktops, please see the Induction Adaptor Plate.
Diameter: 145mm | 5.7".
Designed & manufactured in the United Kingdom
William Playford, 9Barista’s founder, has two great passions in life; jet engines and espresso coffee. He started building jet engines as a teenager and went on to study jet engineering at Cambridge, while his love for good coffee started in Italy and slowly turned from love to something of an obsession.
Realising that top quality espresso machines require the same three elements that jet engines do—high pressures, perfectly controlled temperatures and precision engineered components—William decided that if anyone could engineer a small but perfectly formed home espresso machine, it was him.
Five years later, 9Barista—the first ever jet-engineered stovetop espresso machine—was born.
