The Granbaristo Focus also features an Eco-Mode option. In this mode, only the coffee boiler is activated, reducing the amount of energy consumption. When selecting milk-based beverages, the boiler will have to heat up to froth milk. If Eco-Mode is turned off, milk-based beverages are produced much quicker, at the expense of increased energy consumption.

In this mode the Granbaristo Focus will stay at half of its operating temperature and will be ready to produce a beverage in under 45 seconds. To exit this mode simply press anywhere on the display.
