Located in Naples Italy near the famous Mt. Vesuvius, Izzo manufactures exceptional espresso machines for the sophisticated espresso lover. Since 1979 Izzo has been improving and refining its designs offering customers the ability to create a true Neapolitan espresso experience in the home kitchen. Check out the Alex Duetto 3.0 at 1st in Coffee which features dual boilers and independent temperature adjustment by PID controller.
The PID, or proportional-integral-derivative controller, employed by Izzo for the Alex Duetto espresso machine is the best solution we’ve seen to eliminating human error in espresso making. The scientific explanation is that the PID operates on an algorithm which attempts to minimize error by adjusting the process through use of a manipulated variable. The easier explanation is that the machine automatically corrects for very small errors that may occur in the brewing process such as exact temperature control, steep time, and pressure consistency. This allows the home and restaurant brewer to create consistently exceptional espresso with ease.
The Alex Duetto espresso machine is one of the best on the market for those hoping to create the traditional tastes found in small cafes in Rome or Milan at home. It is a machine that packs enough power to perform well in an office or restaurant setting but is also petite enough to compliment a home kitchen. The double boiler feature allows users to create traditional espresso drinks as well as milk based beverages and the rotary pump is quiet so it will not interrupt your atmosphere with noisy operation.
The Izzo espresso machine is heavy, packing about 92 pounds when it is filled with water so be sure to have a helper nearby if you are attempting to move it. This sturdy design has proven to have its benefits however with shot after being pulled at a consistent temperature, texture, and taste. 1st in Coffee has seen very little issues with these machines in the dozens we have sold to happy consumers.
