It makes coffee:
The Achille is a unique lever machine due in part to its heat exchanger. This is a bit of a two-edged sword. It allows the machine to run for hours and pull many back to back shots without overheating. The drawback is that you must pull a cooling flush before every extraction, just as you would any pump driven heat exchanger espresso machine.
Many heavy-grouped machines have long "thermal memory" that can make it difficult to judge the correct flush amount to obtain the desired brew temperature. In contrast, the Achille is among the most predictable heat exchanger espresso machines
