What's the difference between the Quick Mill Andreja and Anita?
The Andreja Premium and Anita have the same capacity and excellent internal components, but the Andreja has some features that set it ahead:
- Higher quality stainless steel housing
- No-burn steam and hot water arms
- Commercial-grade steam and hot water valves
- Can be directly plumbed with an additional kit
Is a heat exchanger machine as good as a double boiler?
Both heat exchange and double boiler machines offer great temperature stability and the ability to steam and pull shots simultaneously. Since double boiler machines have dedicated steam and grouphead boilers, the recovery time is slightly faster than on a heat exchanger.
Does the Andreja make good espresso without a PID?
The Andreja offers excellent temperature stability in the grouphead. Its heat exchange system has a metal tube that runs through the steam boiler to the grouphead, flash heating the water at around 200 degrees.
Should I directly plumb my machine?
The benefit of directly plumbing your espresso machine is there’s no need to refill your water reservoir, just like in a café.
What kind of grinder should I get with my Andreja?
We offer a range of grinders that work well with the Andreja. If you use other brew methods at home, we suggest buying a versatile grinder that works well at coarser grinds, but also allows you to grind fine enough for espresso. If you will only be grinding for your espresso machine, we offer some excellent dedicated espresso grinders that will match the stature and look of your espresso machine.
