The Hydra™ was developed in anticipation of the new wave of interest in pressure profiling in the espresso industry. Mark Barnett, Synesso's owner and product developer, realized that the best machine platform for pressure profiling required a separate pump and motor per group. He took the popular Cyncra™ platform and redesigned the water inlet system and added additional pumps and motors and all the associated controls.
The result is multiple fully independent brew systems, which enable the barista to program different pressures to optimize roast extraction, as well as to brew on one group while preinfusing on the other without adversely affecting system pressure. Multiple pumps and motors too, add to the built-in redundancy of parts which promotes uptime for busy cafes.
The Hybrid™ is a revolutionary new idea in the espresso industry. Originating from the unique configuration of the Hydra™, Synesso™ allows the user to determine their unique combination of volumetric and manual groups. In other words, if you'd like a volumetric group head next to a manual group, no problem. Two manuals and one volumetric? You got it. And the best part is that this is available for the same cost as a Hydra™; no extra charge for your dream configuration. Pretty awesome, right? That's what we thought.
