WFM Buys World’s First Custom Black Eagle Espresso Machine

"Meet EP Custom Shop Build #045. The very first customized Victoria Arduino Black Eagle VA 388 ever! Victoria Arduino worked with WBC 2007 Champion James Hoffman of Square Mile Coffee to create a machine that offers the barista maximum consistency for espresso preparation. You get temperature stability from T3 technology combined with “gravimetric” technology for more consistent shots. It’s no wonder that the Black Eagle is the exclusive machine for regional & national Barista Competitions!
A machine with such capabilities and style deserves a nice home which is exactly what it got. This Eagle landed at the brand new Whole Foods Market Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia. This is our 10th piece of EP Custom Shop equipment for our good friends over at Whole Foods!"
