The Izzo “Alex Tre” with PID, E-61, rotary pump, plumb or reservoir water supply, plumbed drip tray option, stainless steel case and frame, and so much more is just a click away!
Reservoir or Plumbed – It's Your Choice – The “Alex Tre” features a 2.3 liter reservoir (over half a gallon). To fill, simply lift off the cup warming tray and remove the reservoir's lid. The lid helps keep the water clean and dust free. But what if you want to plumb the machine directly to a water supply? Easy! Connect the water line to your cold water plumbing and flip a lever. No more reservoir filling!
Plumbed Drain Option – The “Alex Tre” includes the plumb kit for the drip tray. If you install that option and run the drain line (which is included) to a proper drain location you will not have to empty the drip tray manually. No more walking across the kitchen, trying to get to the sink without spilling waste water on the floor!
E-61 Lever Group – The commercial-quality E-61 group has been in use in numerous variations for well over 50 years and for good reason. It offers temperature stability and predictability in a simple, dependable, and easy to service package. And we love the classic look!
Rotary Pump – The commercial-quality rotary pump and motor runs more quietly than a vibration-style pump. A rotary pump also delivers a smooth, steady flow of water which will give years of dependable service.
Electronic PID controlled Boiler Temperature – Instead of a mechanical pressure switch to turn the heating element on and off to control the temperature of the water in the boiler, the “Alex Tre” features a PID which is an electronic thermostat. Boiler temperature can be easily adjusted without tools from the front-mounted control panel.
Dual Pressure Gauges – Next to the E-61 group are two gauges that keep you informed as to what is happening in the boiler. One is for boiler pressure which makes it easy to be sure that there is plenty of steam power when you need it, and the other is for brew pressure which is an indication of the efficiency of the extraction in real time.
No Burn Wands – Both the steam wand as well as the hot water spigot are double walled to help prevent burns, and in the case of the steam wand, to make cleaning off the milk at the end of a steaming session easier. Both wands swivel making them a lot easier to move into position to match the way you work. And to top that off, both the steam wand and the hot water spigot are stainless steel.
Quality Heat-Exchanger Boiler – The copper and brass boiler has a 2 liter capacity. The water level in the boiler is controlled automatically. A vacuum breaker valve allows the "Alex Tre" to be placed on a timer with no worry about vapor lock. The 1400 watt heating element delivers excellent performance while keeping its power consumption at a point that allows it to operate on a standard 15amp household circuit. To add to its efficiency, the boiler is also insulated. A resettable safety thermostat helps protect the boiler in case of an overheating event.
Stainless Steel Throughout – The case as well as the frame are stainless steel. No hidden painted frame members. The Alex Tre is designed for years of performance, and the frame and case are no exception.
Keeping It On The Level - The chrome legs are adjustable to easily level the "Alex Tre" on any counter top.
