Valexia Duetto II PID Dual Boiler Espresso Machine with Wood Handles
The Valexia Duetto II by Gruppo Izzo, originally located in Naples, but now near Rome, is the newest dual boiler espresso machine at 1st-line, as of November 2019! Furthermore, this machine is excellent to use in a home kitchen, small office, or for light commercial use. Moreover, top-notch materials contribute to the espresso machine’s beautiful view on the outside with the use of advanced functions on the inside.
Additionally, the name “Duetto” comes into use due to the unit’s incredible dual boiler system, where one boiler produces the steam coming out and the other boiler produces temperature stable water for the espresso coffee coming out. Also, its phenomenal PID system controls the temperature of both boilers. Finally, you will enjoy its silent vertical positioned rotary pump, a quiet SSR Power Relay, and its switchable lever from water tank to direct plumb.
The E61 brass grouphead is incredible for its espresso-making capabilities! The small lever and portafilters offer a fantastic look in wood.
The Valexia is a beast! The Izzo drip tray gives off character of brute force! Thus, once you own the Izzo Valexia dual boiler espresso machine, you will know why!
