The Luminaire Shot Timer senses when a shot is started and displays the time in seconds. This solves a fundamental problem faced by many home brewers and professional barista’s daily!
Modern espresso machines don’t always feature built in shot timers forcing us to use clumsy stop watches or cellphones to time our shots. We knew there had to be a better way!
Our search led us to Luminaire, the company responsible for some of La Marzocco’s greatest software and PC hardware. We are happy to be the agents for Luminaire in SA, allowing us to assist you in making better espresso at home or in your coffee bar!
The Luminaire Shot Timer requires very little expertise to instal and it works on most espresso machines. It works with any home or commercial espresso machine using 24V, 120V, or 240V grouphead (3-way) solenoid valves (AC not DC).
We have them running on Linea Classic’s, Linea Mini’s, Rancilio Silvia’s, Gaggia Classic Pro’s and many more!
One automatic espresso shot timer; cell battery (CR2032)
Quick Mill Silvano, Faema E61 Jubile, Gaggia Classic, Avanti Siena Deluxe with E61, Nuova Simonelli Music, Rancilio Silvia, Dalla Corte Mina
Most La Marzocco machines including the Linea Mini, Linea Classic EE and AV, Linea PB AV and ABR, GS3, GB5, Strada AV, EE and EP. Will not work with MP models including Linea MP, Linea PB MP, Strada MP or GS3 MP
The Shot Timer does not work on most E61 grouphead espresso machines. This includes many “prosumer” machines made by Quickmill, Rocket, and ECM.
The Shot Timer also does not work on most Slayer espresso machines as they use DC solenoids instead of AC.
For machines without a 3-way grouphead solenoid: in some instances you can attach the Shot Timer’s sensor to your machine’s vibratory or rotary pump. In these cases the timer will time whenever the pump turns on or off. So if your machine has preinfusion with the pump off or if the pump fills the boiler at the end of an extraction, the time could be wrong.
