Izzo Alex Duetto III | Sneak Peek

Posted on October 30, 2012 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith There have been 0 comments

Great news for espresso aficionados, Izzo is about to release the next revision of their acclaimed Duetto espresso machine, the Izzo Alex Duetto 3.0.

We are still learning what changes have been made and at this point it mostly seems to be a cosmetic upgrade.  The reality is that under the hood, the Duetto II leaves little room for improvement.  A majority of the nit-picky gripes of the Duetto II center around the fit and finish of the body, and while hardly a deal breaker for most, the Duetto III has brought a level of refinement appropriate to a machine of this caliber.

The Duetto V2 has a single wrap around body panel which is has been replaced with three individually formed panels.  They are more reminiscent of the beautiful bodywork on the Quick Mill Andreja Premium.  Also, cup tray rails have been made standard which allow easier tray removal and access to the water reservoir.

The only notable inside change that we currently are aware of is the repositioning of the expansion valve discharge.  The Duetto II has a notch in the drip tray to accommodate, but the Duetto III does not.  The repositioning allows the notch to be removed from the drip tray which allows greater capacity.

The question on everyone's mind is price.  We don't know yet but will let you know when we do.  Looks like the first shipment will be landing mid November and will have more to share when it does.

At first look, the Duetto III seems like a nice refinement of an already fantastic home espresso machine.
