The machine caught the attention of attendees for its exceptional length. It was one of the most talked about booths at the trade show.

For Synesso, the nine-group Hydra was an “art piece”, highlighting their machine’s features (individual brew tanks) as well as some of the add-ons (brushed steel candy red group heads).

Throughout the show, three roasters would man the machine, each employing two baristas. Anfim grinders lined up behind the bar.
