  1. 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 ba
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. Hi, I've been getting 'under the hood' of my Duetto II this weekend. Originally to solve the slow steam boiler fill up, but I've been having a look around I can see some build up ( I think calcium?) on the bottom of the steam boiler where the heating elements enter. So I was wondering if anyone had seen this or knows about it? Should I be concerned? Is it a sign of the seal failing maybe? I've also got to sort out the insulation on the boiler as a lot of it has solidified and is crumbling away. I read @DavecUK blog about this using the snow skirt tree (http://coffeetime.wikidot.com/insula
  6. Hi, I've got the Alex Duetto II and was having the problem with the steam boiler filling slowly and at points not filling at all before just turning off and not working. After looking on here, I saw @Bob_McBob had posted a solution to this (thanks to him for sharing ). So I had a go at a go at doing what he said and low and behold there was the metal gauze that was compacted in there fairly tightly! I couldn't see any obvious signs of debris, but you can check it out for yourself in the photo. Now, I didn't know how to do the backflush part the he talked about, so I just removed it (as you ca
