We have long admired the build quality and brewing performance of Quick Mill machines. They are unrivaled in the craft of bending and polishing stainless steel to a perfect sheen, which we first noticed on the Andreja Premium espresso machine. We took our dream list for an E61 machine to Quick Mill and asked if they could make it. The result is the LUCCA M58.
Boasting an integrated PID (the brains of the machine) and shot timer control, it is now possible to achieve exceptional shots that fall within the optimal extraction time and temperature. No more fumbling for your iPhone when pulling shots (it even shows tenth of a seconds for the real OCD types). The display itself also lends a subtle presence on the machine. Some of the common PID controllers have bright red digits that glare at you whenever the machine is on - a bit harsh. We asked for a white LED display that would show the temperature of the espresso and steam boilers, then finished off this modern feature with a round bezel. Analog balanced with digital.
We additionally asked Quick Mill to use multi-directional joystick steam and hot water valve controls. There's something mechanical and old-school about opening these valves that reflects the best of the machine age. The same can be said of the angled and vented side panels that are topped with a chromed cup-rail. Isn't she a beaut?
Internally, the LUCCA M58 is built with quality and high performance in mind. With a rotary pump, insulated dual boilers and an E61 brew group, the M58 allows you to steam silky smooth milk with its powerful steam wand while simultaneously extracting a great quality espresso shot. For those with the ability to plumb, the M58 features a direct-line in addition to a water reservoir with a low water sensor.
The machine is supplied with both a double-spouted and a bottomless portafilter. The heavy duty handles are weighted to balance out the feel of the portafilter, and the tip is solid chromed brass. The one-piece drip tray has a smooth front edge and cool-touch sides. The machine comes with no-burn steam wand and hot water arms as standard.
Please note that a tamper is not supplied with this machine.

Dedicated boilers for steam and espresso mean that recovery time is rapid and temperature stability is excellent.
It's simple to adjust the temperature in the group boiler with a front-access touch pad.
Digital Shot Timer
Integrated shot timer that reads to the tenth of a second.
Since the LUCCA M58 is so solidly built, you need to give it at least 20 minutes of warm up time before making drinks.
