The Italian company Groupo Izzo Srl, was one of the first to successfully bring a double boiler espresso machine to the U.S. home market and has remained one of our most popular espresso machines for home enthusiasts. The Alex Duetto 3 features an elegantly designed and beautiful stainless steel body, a commercial E61 brew group, no-burn steam & hot water wands, a powerful quiet commercial rotary water pump, and an extremely precise electronic temperature control PID.
Shot temperature in the Duetto 3 can be easily adjusted via the PID control panel allowing you to get the most from single origin espressos which can display different tasting notes at different temperatures. The large E61 brew group helps the Duetto's precise temperature stability for excellent shot to shot consistency. The Duetto 3 is a solid option for light duty coffee carts or restaurants where 220V power is not an option.
