The present invention also relates to apparatus for making beverages, which is adapted to the preparation of the drink based on the interaction of the extract drink and extracting the liquid, containing the cooking device mentioned above.

Prerequisites to the creation of inventions

A well known example of the apparatus for preparing beverages, adapted to the preparation of the drink based on the interaction of the extract drink and extracting the liquid, a device is "espresso". In General, such a device used for making espresso by making the ka under the pressure of the flow of hot water through the ground coffee.

The apparatus espresso contains the so-called cooking chamber, in which the actual process of making espresso in the apparatus. In particular, the cooking chamber can be opened to allow the introduction of fresh servings of ground coffee and for removing the used ground coffee and close to allow for the possibility of the process, during which create the necessary pressure inside the cooking chamber.

The size of the portion of ground coffee for coffee "espresso" is defined, taking into account various factors. The formation of the so-called "layer of cream" is a good indicator of the process of making coffee "espresso" with the appropriate parameters. Layer cream" is a thin layer of foam on the upper surface of the liquid espresso.

You can create an artificial layer of cream", if this is desirable, under certain conditions. For this purpose, use a tool like the non-return valve or orifice, downstream from the cooking chamber, which can be located extract drink, i.e. on the release of the camera. The valve or choke, performs functions, which consists in increasing the pressure prevailing inside the cooking chamber during the cooking process coffee "espresso", and in creating a jet of fresh coffee "e is pressed", passing inside the exhaust pipe, resulting in the formation of foam.

The drawback of using a valve or choke, mentioned above, is that a large amount of water remains in the cooking chamber after completion of the process of making espresso. This is inconvenient for the user of the apparatus espresso, especially in cases where the ground coffee comes in the form of Packed portions of coffee as a wet tea packaging difficult to remove from the cooking chamber.

Brief description of the invention

The aim of the present invention is to solve the problems associated with the fact that in the cooking chamber remains water as a consequence of use of the valve or choke to create an artificial layer of cream". Preferably, the solution would not require any additional action from the user. According to the present invention suitable solution was found by creating a cooking device designed for use in apparatus for making beverages, where the exhaust means of the cooking device additionally contain a second outlet channel, and where the cooking device further comprises means cooperating with the cover so that the blocked output flow to the second outlet when the cover nah who is in closed position, and to ensure the free release of flow from the chamber through the second outlet when the cover is in the open position.

In the cooking device according to the present invention is additionally provided with a second outlet so that the liquid, which otherwise would have remained in the cooking chamber after completion of the process of preparing espresso, because of limitations passes in the first outlet port, could now to flow from the cooking chamber after completion of the process, where the second outlet channel is used as a bypass channel relative to the first exhaust channel when the cover is moved to open position. A distinctive feature of the cooking device according to the present invention is the fact that the means for blocking the second outlet port when the cover is in the closed position. Thus, excluded the conditions under which the fluid bypasses the first outlet during the process of making espresso. When the cooking device is used, for example, for the preparation of espresso coffee, and the first outlet has a function of creating an artificial layer of cream", it is important to ensure the possibility of the passage of fresh coffee espresso is only through the first outlet, and to the pressure prevailing inside the cooking chamber during the cooking process espresso, not decreased.

For solving the problems according to the present invention only requires the use of additional discharge channel, and means cooperating with the cover thus to block exhaust flow through the second outlet when the cover is in the closed position, and to ensure the free output of the output flow from the chamber through the second outlet when the cover is in the open position. Means for controlling access to additional exhaust channel by moving the cover can be made in any suitable way in which you can use to bring in the action which would require the participation of the user.

According to preferred not mandatory variant implementation, falling under the scope of action of the present invention, the means for controlling access to the second outlet channel contain the valve and supporting means for maintaining portions of the extract of the beverage in the chamber, where the supporting means mechanically connected with the locking element for locking channel, and where the cover and the supporting means is designed to use under arrivalsa means is locked in the valve by means of the locking element, when the cover is moved to closed position. These provide effective design tools for control produced by the flow through the second channel.

The tilt valve for making open position can be improved through the use of means for pressing the supporting means in position for opening the valve so that guaranteed to ensure the possibility that the second outlet channel was freely available as soon as the cover is moved to open position, and that the pressure exerted on the supporting means, was discharged. Means for pressing may contain elastic element, for example a coil spring or other suitable spring or combination of springs. In particular, it is preferable that the camera was made with the possibility of placement of her coffee capsules or Packed portions of coffee, which would support using the support means during use, and that in the chamber during use cover, while moving it to the closed position, pressed the Packed portion of coffee or a capsule with coffee, and through this action, the support means has locked the valve with the locking element. These provide effective design.

It should be noted that it is possible to means to limit the issue the extent of flow through the first outlet channel would contain the valve, which is opened during use, when the chamber is under pressure. Using this valve, the pressure prevailing inside the cooking chamber during the process of making espresso, you may be optimal, and this same pressure is applied to the foam produced in the flow of the drink.

The above and other aspects of the present invention will become apparent after reading the subsequent detailed description of the apparatus for preparing beverages according to the present invention.

Brief description of drawings

The present invention is explained below in more detail with reference to the drawings, in which identical or similar parts are denoted by the same numbers of positions and on which:

1 shows schematically in the form of a three-dimensional sketch of the components of the cooking device according to the present invention;

figure 2 also shows the components of the cooking device according to the present invention and illustrates the operation of the means for releasing fluid from the chamber of the cooking device.

Detailed description of embodiments of the invention

Figures 1 and 2 schematically depicts the components of the cooking device 1 according to the present invention, which is intended for use in the apparatus for prepara is placed beverages, for the beverage based on the interaction of the extract drink and extracting fluid. In the above example, the cooking device 1 is particularly suitable for use in apparatus for making coffee "espresso" coffee "espresso" on the basis of interaction servings of ground coffee or coffee in the capsule or Packed portions of coffee and hot water. The General concept of operation of the apparatus for making beverages are well known, and it is additionally not explained here. For completeness of explanation it should be noted that the present invention is not limited to the region relating to apparatus for the preparation of espresso coffee.

Like the well-known cooking devices designed for use in apparatus for making espresso, the cooking device 1 includes a camera 2 for the introduction and placement of her servings of ground coffee. The camera 2 can be opened and closed by a cover (not shown). In the open position of the camera 2 cooking device 1 can be entered fresh ground coffee or coffee in the capsule, or Packed portion of coffee, or can be removed from the cooking device 1 used a portion of ground coffee. When the cover is closed, can be carried out, the process passes hot water through the ground coffee, and in the process can be created Proc. of boudeuse pressure.

The cover is preferably pivotally mounted on the upper side of the camera 2.

In the present example, the grid 3 to maintain portions of ground coffee placed on the bottom side of the camera 2. Grid 3 provided with holes 4 to allow release of fluid, particularly fresh coffee "espresso"from camera 2.

The cooking device 1 is equipped with suitable exhaust means 5 for release of fluid from the chamber 2. Exhaust means 5 contain the main discharge channel 6, provided with a valve 7 to limit the discharge channel 6. In the context of coffee "espresso" mentioned constraint perform at least two important functions, namely: ensuring educational opportunities "layer of cream and to minimize the reducing effect of having the main exhaust channel 6 on the pressure prevailing inside the chamber 2 during the process of making espresso. In the field of apparatus for making espresso, from the point of view of execution of the first function, the valve 7 is often referred to as valve for education "cream". For greater clarity, this term is also used in the present description.

Valve 7 for education "cream" can be performed in any suitable way. In the present example, the valve 7 to education "cream" is padprints the m valve, in particular, it is a normally closed valve. During the process of making espresso normally closed valve urges to engage in open position under the influence of pressure during the process. Therefore, you can skip freshly brewed coffee espresso through the valve 7 to education "cream", and then pour from the camera 2 in a suitable container (not shown) for espresso.

The problem with using the valve 7 to education "cream", is that in the chamber 2 remains in the water after completion of the process of making espresso. As soon as the pressure dropped, for example due to the fact that the cover is opened by a user, the valve 7 to education "cream" moves to the closed position, and the water, which, as it happens, is still inside the chamber 2, cannot escape from the chamber 2. One reason that this fact is considered as the problem, is that the more humid the used ground coffee or coffee in the capsule or Packed batch of coffee is more difficult to extract from the chamber 2.

According to the present invention solving the above problems found without having to modify the functioning of the main exhaust channel 6 and valve 7 for the formation of "cream". The solution is achieved by introducing you in ustnye means 5 optional second outlet channel 8, which can be used as a bypass channel relative to the main exhaust channel 6, when the cover is moved to open position to extract the used portions of ground coffee or coffee in the capsule or Packed portions of coffee. Using a bypass channel is provided the advantage that it ensures the possibility of draining the water from the chamber 2, despite the closed position of the valve 7 for the formation of "cream" and the main exhaust channel 6, when the cover is open.

However, only the addition of the bypass channel create concerns during implementation of the process of preparing espresso, since the presence of the Obvodny canal leads to a fall in pressure prevailing inside the chamber 2, and thus, there are obstacles to serving freshly prepared espresso through the main discharge channel 6, thereby reducing the degree of possible formation of a layer of cream". These disadvantages do not occur when using the present invention, as the present invention, in addition, the proposed provision of the cooking device 1 by means of interacting with a lid so that blocked produced flow through the additional outlet 8 when the cover is in the closed position. In the present example these means include a valve 9, below is named by-pass valve 9.

Figure 2 clearly illustrates the location of two exhaust channels 6, 8 and two valves 7, 9, installed in them. The valves 7, 9 are parallel to each other, while each of the valves 7, 9 is installed in series relative to the camera 2. According to the opportunities component of the bypass valve 9 is attached to the grid 3, used to maintain a portion of ground coffee so that the position of the bypass valve 9 was determined by the position of the grid 3. Grid 3 is preferably attached to the locking element of the valve through the stem, which press the locking element, when the grid is moved down. The locking element can be a ball, placed in the seat for the ball. In this regard it should be noted that the position of the grid 3 in the chamber 2 can be varied to some extent. With this purpose, in the present example, the grid 3 is based on the spiral spring 10, where the grid 3 is located at one end of the spring 10 and the other end of the spring 10 rests on the surface of the housing 11 of the cooking device 1. In addition, the spring 10 is directed into the channel 12 located in the housing 11, to accommodate the spring 10. It should be noted that for clarity in figure 1, the grid 3, the exhaust means 5 and the spring 10 is depicted at a distance relative to the housing 1 thus, to see how the spring 10 is inserted into the channel 12, as mentioned above and as the exhaust means 5 are accommodated in the housing 13, which is inserted into another channel 14 in the housing 11.

The following describes the action of the cooking device 1, since the conditions under which the cooking device 1 enter the ground coffee, and then carry out the process of making espresso.

First cover is in the open position and the grid 3 is at the high level, as shown in figure 2. The dimensions of the chamber 2 is chosen so that when laying the coffee in the capsule or Packed portions of coffee on the grid 3 and moving the cover in closed position grid 3 deep, responsible way down against the action of spring 10. When the grid 3 is on the lower level, the bypass valve 9 is in the closed position. Thus, when all the components of the cooking device 1 are in positions suitable for carrying out the process of making espresso, the bypass valve 9 is closed and the process can be carried out in the same manner as in known cooking devices 1, in which no additional discharge channel 8. It may also be that the cover is directly pressed to the grid, for example by using balocchi ahead to the grid 3, when the cover is closed.

During the process of making coffee "e is pressed" coffee "espresso" poured from the chamber 2 through the main discharge channel 6. After the process is complete and open the cover to retrieve the used portions of ground coffee pressure on the grid 3 is terminated, resulting in the grid 3 is moved back to the highest position under the influence of spring 10 and to a lesser extent under the influence of the spring component of the by-pass valve 9. In the process provide the opportunity to keep the by-pass valve 9 from its normal position, i.e. the open position. As a result, the excess water inside the chamber 2 may be released from the chamber 2 after all, namely through the additional outlet 8, and used ground coffee or wet Packed portions of coffee can be as dry. Figure 2 bypass fluid flow produced from the cooking device 1, i.e. the fluid flow flowing through the additional outlet 8 and discharged from the housing 11, are marked by arrows.

As a result of the above through the use of additional discharge channel 8 and the bypass valve 9 reaches that provide the possibility of disposing of excess water from the chamber 2, the resulting process of making coffee "espresso", when the camera 2 is in the open position, while the passage through the main discharge channel 6 is still t aetsa only passage, available for liquid during the process of making coffee "espresso". In addition, no additional tools are needed to guarantee a certain pressure prevailing in the chamber 2 during the process of making coffee "espresso", which is another benefit of having an additional outlet channel 8, is automatically blocked by-pass valve 9 during the entire process.

In the depicted cooking device 1, when the bypass valve 9 is in the open position, fluid flows from the chamber 2 and through the additional outlet 8 under the influence of gravity. Can be provided, if desired, additional means for sucking the liquid in the chamber 2, through the additional outlet 8 for process improvements removal of the liquid.

In the present example, the spring 10 plays the role of means for removing the by-pass valve 9 in the normal, open position, once you open up the camera 2 and stop the action of pressure on the grid 3. The scope of the present invention provides for the possibility of use in the cooking device 1 also any other suitable means for implementing the functions mentioned above. For the sake of clarity it should be noted that use the use of a spring 10, or any other means is not significant, although such use is preferred from the point of view of the fact that with its help contribute to ensuring the return by-pass valve 9 in its normal, open position when the pressure is relieved.

Specialist in the art should understand that the scope of the present invention is not limited to the examples discussed in the above description, but that certain changes and modifications of the invention may be made without deviating from the scope of this invention as defined in the attached claims. Although the present invention is illustrated and described in detail with reference to the drawings, such illustration and description should be considered as illustrative material or materials are given as examples, rather than as limiting the scope of the invention. The present invention is not limited to the disclosed variants of implementation.
