Dura-Brew
The international spirit of Egro BYO is underscored by the enhanced brewing group in stainless steel 18 grams, created for the specific purpose of enabling the preparation of coffee beverages in perfect American and North European style. The brewing unit boasts a revolutionary patented hermetic closing system, which requires less maintenance and reduces the overall running costs of the machine.
Self Adjusting Grinder
The Automatic regulation of the grinder is based on an algorithm capable of correcting any variation in the in-cup coffee quality caused by external factors beyond the barista's control, such as coffee storage, weather conditions, internal coffee machine temperature and usage times. The algorithm comes into play to keep the duration of the brewing time constant. Based on the recognised parameters, the grinder self-adjusts its coffee bean grinding. The Self Adjusting Grinder is therefore to ensure that the machine delivers a consistent brewing quality at all times.
Automatic Spout
It is a motorised system that adapts to the height of the brewing spout according to the beverage selected and, consequently, the cup being used ensuring a rapid and accurate service. Particularly suitable for self-service areas, the Automatic Spout assures a set and clean work surface at all times.
Powder Inlet
Maximum flexibility. The BYO has a practical inlet for pre-ground coffee that offers even more ways to use your machine. For example, this feature can be used for serving decaffeinated coffee.
Milk System
The Milk System offers customers the possibility to choose from a vast range of milk solutions, specially studied to satisfy the multitude of commercial formats operating in the Ho.Re.Ca sales channel. The dispensing spout, consisting of a single component that is easy to remove and take apart into two pieces, ensures perfect hygiene. Now regulated by means of appropriate software, the temperature and consistency of milk-based beverages are parameters that may easily be set up and modified by a technician in the maximum configuration BYO Top-Milk XP. The patented MLR (Milk Line Rinsing) system makes it possible to effect and to set a rapid rinsing phase with the aid of cold water and air, which safeguards the environment and reduces electricity consumption. The quick and simple daily washing cycle has been automated to such an extent that the barista just has to add the detergent.
Cold Milk Foam
The patented Cold Milk Foam system has been conceived to prepare full automatically creamy cold milk based beverages. It is possible to create three types of milk foam density according to the preset configuration of the products. Thanks to the Cold Milk Foam system, it is possible to prepare low calorie desserts, as well as a variety of chocolate powder drinks or cold syrups with cold milk foam. A quick and instant rinsing system guarantees an extraordinary brewing performance at all times.

Optional on:
Fridge KS9
BYO Top-Milk XP can be equipped with an innovative fridge with a convenient external display, which is supplied as a standard feature. The new Fridge, whose storage capacity is equivalent to 6.5 litres, is supplied with a capacitive sensor to accurately monitor the milk level in the tank. With the Multi-Milk Selection add-on, the user may operate with two different kinds of milk to satisfy the most demanding palates. All configurations offered with the BYO Top-Milk XP version allow for the refrigeration unit to be positioned under the counter, if so desired.

Optional on:
Fridge Under Machine
The space offered by a bar counter is often limited and the operator may not have enough room to work comfortably in. For this reason, a more effective arrangement of equipment and work tools may represent a turnaround solution. It is with this objective in mind that Egro LAB has developed a new solution for a space-saving refrigerator positioned under the machine and equipped with a 4-litre milk tank. A new milk level sensor, developed and patented by Egro Lab, monitors and measures the milk level to considerably reduce waste. Moreover, the sensor recognizes the exact quantity of milk necessary to guarantee the production of the beverage requested. The milk level is visible on the display (only on Egro BYO Top-Milk XP) and selection of the milk-based beverage will not be consented if there is not enough milk to make it.
Quick-Milk Fridge
A real refrigerating unit with smaller dimensions and with great aesthetics impact. Its housing is made from lightweight yet hardwearing materials; the stainless steel door has a brushed finish and its storage capacity is equivalent to 4 liters, making the Quick-Milk Fridge the most satisfactory solution for storing and dispensing milk in an extremely practical manner.

Optional on:
Cool Box 6.5
Cool Box 6.5 is a practical and quality solution for storing and dispensing milk. The modern door handle improves the ergonomics of the product. Equipped with an internal light, Cool Box 6.5 guarantees an excellent visibility to the user.

Optional on:
iSteam
This new totally automatic steam wand allows milk to be heated and frothed using a mix of steam and air, until a soft and remarkably compact foam is obtained. The innovative valve system makes it the fastest and most powerful steam wand on the market. Two customizable buttons (Cappuccino and Latte) make steaming "barista" quality milk as simple as pushing a button. "Cappuccino" is to heat and froth the milk; "Latte" to heat the milk only. Fine tuning the foam's texture and volume is possible with six emulsion levels per button. When the programmed temperature is reached, the iSteam stops automatically. The iSteam software measures the starting temperature of the milk and automatically adjusts the air throughout the steaming process to deliver the highest quality foam. The special stainless steel covering is heat-insulated to make it cool to the touch and extremely easy to clean.
C-Lever with Cool Touch
The new steam wand Cool Touch, thermally insulated thanks to a double protective coating, eliminates the risk of possible accidental contacts due to high operating temperatures. The innovative steam outlet has an ergonomic and contemporary design that well fits the extreme class of Egro product line.
The peculiarity of this special feature is the outstanding manageability and practicality ensured to the user.
C-Lever
The new steam valve with a special control knob and ergonomic design is completed with open-stay and open-close functions. The valve has a very short travel distance, and is operated by rotating it just 25°. Turning it clockwise, it opens and remains in this position. Turned counter-clockwise, it automatically closes when released. Rapidity, precision and ergonomics: maximum user comfort for daily tasks.
Multimedia
With MULTIMEDIA capability, BYO also makes it possible to download personalised images to use as wallpaper or screen savers for the device. In addition, you can show clients advertising images and videos while the fully-automatic machine is brewing the beverage in self-service operating mode.
LED Lights
The drink delivery area is illuminated by multi-colored LED lights. As well as looking fantastic, the colours are also associated with different functions:
blue - the machine is ready,
white - dispensing drinks,
red - the machine is not ready,
green - perform a step in the daily cleaning process.
Option Self
For user-friendly self-service. Egro ONE machines can be configured for professional self-service use. By choosing the option Self the machine will be delivered with lock package (locking Bean Hoppers, Door for Coffee Drawer, Powder Inlet and USB port). The option Self is without steam wand and is not configured for double shots. Additionally, a central hot water outlet (see picture) as well as an ejection device for waste coffee may be selected. Thanks to small cup positioners the user can always place the cup correctly under the outlet. Furthermore, the user interface is self-explanatory and easy to use. With its optional payment systems the ONE Self is ideal for use in all self-service areas.
Powder Module

The Powder Module allows for the management of a great number of beverages in powder form. It is an external device positioned on the right hand side of the machine and consists of two hoppers that may either be used with one powder or may operate separately with different aromatized, spiced, caramelized, chocolate-based and milk powders. An alternative high-performing solution that is well suited to all those venues wishing to offer their customers an increasingly varied and exhaustive choice of beverages.
