Latest batch from COFFEELINK, a kilo of both the Peruvian 121 and Yirgacheffe Grade One, another kilo of Grade One green beans to roast and some untried Kenyan, Costa Rican and Mexican. The Mexican is going down a treat through the Duetto, updates on the rest as we sample!
My Duetto II have started to empty the internal watertank and fill up the waste tray. It takes around 8-10 hours before the watertank is empty. I replaced the OPV around 2 years ago because of a steam leakage. (all the upside down cups on the top tray was wet inside). The steam leakage problem is gone but the answer from bellerista is to change the OPV again. I don`t understand. Do i need to replace the OPV every second year or is it another solution. Kind regards T. Andersen
For sale my beloved Izzo Alex Duetto MkII. This dual boiler machine is a beauty and in fact a beast. Bought second hand and in immaculate condition in 2016 and had previously been bought new from Bella Barista (2010 production model). Selling as I'm not allowed more machines than kids, and I have broken that rule already. I've used it daily set to turn on the morning for 1 espresso and 1 flat white, so looking at a total heat up time of 2hr per day. The machine has operated flawlessly. Strictly only bottle water fed (Volvic and Stretton Hills) and have descaled once every 6 months and backflushed with cafiza once weekly. I took the machine last year to a professional Izzo mechanic at Traders coffee outside London just to be told it's running perfectly and in no need of anything! The only issue I ever had was the safety valve on the steam boiler started hissing. I replaced it with the upgrade version from BB and it's been back to perfect ever since. Also the steam wand that came with the machine was impossibly short, making it tricky to steam milk. Replaced with a longer Rocket steam arm that's given me excellent results ever since. Also upgraded the steam tips which I'll include. Now the machine is incredible. It's equipped with the tried and tested thermostable e61 group fitted with the upgraded IMS 200um competition shower screen. The brew boiler is 0.8L and adjustable to 1°C through the PID. The steam boiler is a 1.8L insulated copper boiler controlled by a separate PID and separate solid-state relay and gives you bucket loads of steam and hot water. You can choose to turn it off entirely if you purely want espresso. The results have been phenomenal especially since you can easily tweak a number of variables including pump pressure. Oh forgot to mention, it has a commercial rotary veined pump mounted carefully to provide silent operation. This has been inspected and lubricated once every 12 months as per DaveC's instructions. Can be tank (2.4L) or mains fed with a flick of a switch. Never tried mains but should be straight forward. Read DaveC's review although the one in the review is for a slightly earlier version (https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/pdf/IzzoAlexDuettoIIcloserlookv4.pdf) What you'll get: Izzo Alex Duetto MKII rotary with upgraded safety valve and steam wand (can be made no burn with included tubing) x1 58mm single spouted portafilter + basket x1 58mm double spouted portafilter + basket x1 58mm bottomless portafilter x1 IMS competition 16-21g basket x1 blind basket for backflushing x1 IMS 200um competition shower screen x1 OEM shower screen x4 Izzo Alex high grade steam tips with (2, 3, 4, 4 alternative positioning) holes High pressure mains tubing x1 unused e61 group service kit x1 detailed instruction and maintenance manual 900g cafiza/puly CAF I am asking for £890 for the lot (extras worth >£100 and not willing to split at the moment) The machine is very heavy (32kg H420xW360xD430 mm) and seeing the delivery horror stories I am not willing to ship. Collection from London, or I can potentially drive within a reasonable distance to meet someone. If you are nearby pop by to try it out. You will not be disappointed.
Hi, I'm trying to figure out if my Duetto II has a problem or not. I just entertained today, and made about 10 drinks back-back. All went really well, but about an hour or two later, I walked by the machine and notice the steam pressure gauge read 2.5 bar. I flushed some steam and there was a lot of water in the pitcher, which of course is really weird. So, I turned off the machine (in part because I knew I was done using it for the night). A couple more hours later, there are nice puddles on the counter under the machine and on the floor. Steam boiler temp is set to 259F and read normal throughout. On opening the case, there were water droplets in the holes of the vacuum breaker, but nowhere else. I used a flashlight and a mechanic's retractable mirror to look around pretty thoroughly. In thinking about this, I'm wondering if my fill sensor failed and the steam boiler overfilled. So, I just removed it and gave it a good cleaning with high grit sandpaper and then re-installed it...but haven't put the cover back on or anything else, and haven't tested it...yet. My machine is plumbed in, line pressure about 3 - 3.5 bar (and read normal all through the above scenario). Last descale was about 6 months ago. Water is treated with a Mavea C300 filter. Thanks in advance, Ron
