The Izzo Alex Duetto 3.0 espresso machine is solidly built and aesthetically pleasing. We find it to be the perfect choice for those wanting the classic look and feel of a small cafe in Rome or Milan. It is the best performing machine we know of that combines large boiler capacity, plumb-in or water reservoir options, pre-infusion, E-61 grouphead, and PID controlled temperature stability.
This machine is powerful enough to use in an office setting, but small enough to be perfectly at home in your kitchen. Because it is a double boiler espresso machine, the Duetto V3 is a wonderful tool for both traditional espresso and milk based drink building, and the quiet rotary pump will not make its presence known. We think this machine is especially handsome when combined with our optional custom wood upgrades, the Clive bottomless portafilter and 58mm tamper.

A tactile method of espresso extraction that allows manual control over shot extraction.
Dedicated boilers for steam and espresso mean that recovery time is rapid and temperature stability is excellent.
You can precisely and easily control the temperature in both the group and steam boiler.
The Duetto has a large water reservoir, but with the included direct-plumb kit, it's easy to connect to a water source.
Since the Duetto is so solidly built, you need to give it at least 20 minutes of warm up time before making drinks.
Weighing in at 72 pounds and measuring 14.25" wide by 17.25" deep, the Duetto is a very large machine.
