I was excited when I heard that Quick Mill was coming out with a new take on the E61 double boiler design. The QM67 looked to be strong contender in the prosumer espresso lineup, especially since it was being placed as a bridge between the Andreja and Alex Duetto II. It features a professional E61 group with a clean, minimalist design. It will be a welcome choice for those that don’t have the counter real estate for the Duetto, and it’s $500 cheaper.
However, the reduced footprint and configuration exposes several issues with temperature stability and power management. Despite these drawbacks, is the QM67 a better value than the similarly priced Andreja or the more expensive Duetto? Well, that depends on what you are wanting to get from your machine.
