iQFlow™ is a technology developed by Franke that revolutionizes the traditional espresso extraction concept.

It extracts more flavour under constant pressure throughout the entire extraction time than previous systems. It enables you to design your individual taste profile. Each pre-set taste profile is ensured in real time.

iQFlow™ opens up the space to create an entirely new coffee experience.

Unfold more flavour out of your beans

An intelligent extraction process ensures a uniform pressure distribution on all the coffee grounds during the entire extraction time – getting more flavour out of your beans.

iQFlow™ opens up a new dimension in taste profiling by offering more variety in the creation of personalized aroma profile design – with the same coffee beans and the same degree of grind.

With iQFlow™, you can enjoy fixed shot times and absolutely consistent coffee quality in real time for every cup, every day, at every location. iQFlow™ monitors and adjusts the extraction flow during the brewing process, in real time.


After a machine goes through a period of inactivity without dispensing coffee, components can cool off. Consequently, the first coffee product that is dispensed afterwards slightly decreases in temperature. This condition is more noticeable in espresso. The First Shot reduces the temperature drop to a minimum by pre-heating the brew unit.

The First Shot option can be individually activated for every coffee product though it is most beneficial for short drinks like espresso and ristretto.
