Macap M4 Stepless

+ $604

Its worm gear-driven stepless adjustment makes it one of the best stepless adjustable grinders on the market today. The worm gear makes it simple to make even a minute adjustment, and the best part is that you can do it with either hand.

Mazzer Mini Doserless

+ $925

The Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless grinder is one of our favorite espresso grinders for its accurate grind, intuitive electronic dosing controls, and control of static (the grinds just drop right into your portafilter without spreading over your countertop!).

Vario

+ $434

Here's the short answer on why this grinder is worth $434: It has the serious quality of a professional level espresso grinder, with precision adjustment to achieve the perfect espresso shot, yet it can switch to your favorite French press or coffee maker setting without losing your micro espresso setting.

Baratza Preciso

+ $270

Based on the popular Virtuoso, the Preciso adds extra precision and control. It retains the 40 grind adjustment steps, but a second micro adjustment lever further divides each of the 40 steps into 11 distinct settings. Smaller steps means more control over your espresso grind, enabling you to pull that perfect shot.

Izzo Alex Duetto 3.0 Espresso Machine

The Alex Duetto 3.0 is a totally PID controlled, dual-boiler espresso machine.

$2,595.00

Overview

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.for a fully customized experience.

Duetto Measurement

Details

  • No-Burn articulating hot water arm
  • All stainless construction (including the frame)
  • Large removable drip tray (includes option to drain if desired)
  • Insulated Steam Boiler, 1.8 liter capacity, 1200 watt heating element
  • Group Boiler, 0.8 liter capacity, 800 watt heating element
  • PID controller for the group boiler (with 1.0 degree Fahrenheit adjustment)
  • PID controller also controls the steam boiler temperature (and thus pressure)
  • Heavy duty steam and hot water valves
  • Vacuum Breaker Valve that diverts steam back to water tank
  • Rotary Pump
  • OPV Valve also routes water back to drip try, not back to the tank
  • The Duetto comes stock in 15 amp mode, which oscillates power between the steam and brew boiler. In 20 amp mode, the Duetto can power both boilers simultaneously. We use the Duetto in 15 amp mode in the showroom and for barista classes (in other words, lots of daily use) and do not have a problem with waiting for the boilers to catch up. However, if you are using the Duetto in a light commercial setting or make a lot of drinks at once, consider the 20 amp mode.

  • Two-year parts and labor provided by the United States importer and Clive Coffee.

Pros

  • Dual boiler

    Dedicated boilers for steam and espresso mean that recovery time is rapid and temperature stability is excellent.

  • Dual PID

    You can precisely and easily control the temperature in both the group and steam boiler.

  • Directly plumb or not: it's your choice

    The Duetto has a large water reservoir, but with the included direct-plumb kit, it's easy to connect to a water source.

Cons

  • Heating time

    Since the Duetto is so solidly built, you need to give it at least 20 minutes of warm up time before making drinks.

  • Size

    Weighing in at 72 pounds and measuring 14.25" wide by 17.25" deep, the Duetto is a very large machine.
