Quick Mill's new Achille is a compact, commercial-quality espresso machine with a lever action. If you've seen "The Talented Mr. Ripley," you may recall Dickie Greenleaf pulling an espresso shot with breakfast on the patio overlooking the mediterranean sea. While purchase of the Achille does NOT include an Italian villa or a gold pinkie ring, it does include a great deal of style and grace. This may be the most elegant espresso machine we offer.
Lever machines are extremely durable and reliable due the their simplistic design.
The Achille has a large water reservoir, but with the included direct-plumb kit, it's easy to connect to a water source.
Since the Achille is so solidly built, you need to give it at least 20 minutes of warm up time before making drinks.
Weighing in at 88 pounds and measuring 14" wide by 20" deep, the Achille is a large machine.
