Description Specifications Resources
 

Exclusively produced for Chris' Coffee, the Alexia Evo by Quick Mill is an impressive home espresso machine. As modeled after Quick Mill's Eliane espresso machine, we combined our experience with Quick Mill's exceptional Italian craftsmanship. Starting with Elaine's exceptional single boiler configuration we made some key changes.

The addition of a PID controller improves the stability of your home espresso machine, especially a single boiler. With the improved performance and increased temperature consistency, you can enjoy an even better shot! Note that the PID controller cannot be installed or purchased separately.

As significant as the addition of a PID might be to any espresso machine, we have made multiple changes to improve upon the Eliane.

Steam Arm Mobility

The previous steam arm only swung side to side. We replaced it with a swivel one and added the same two-hole steam tip found on our Anita.

Magnetic Float Sensor

We replaced it with the microswitch under the water tank with a reliable and proven magnetic float sensor. We use this same sensor on the Anita and Andreja Premium espresso machines. With the sensor changed we could remove the springs and tray the water tank sit on. The elimination of both made the Alexia Evo much quieter, with less resonance when the pump is activated.

Resettable Hi-Limit

The previous fusible link has been replaced with a resettable hi-limit. In the event, the hi-limit is tripped you can correct the cause and simply press down and reset the limit and you are back up and running without having to replace a fuse.

Internally Wiring Update

The Eliane as a 110-volt espresso machine draws more current with the same size heating element. Therefore, we increased the wiring size so that it can easily handle the current.

Drip Tray and Cover

Similar to the drip tray and cover on some of our other espresso machines we added a large capacity, no-splash cover, with easy pull-out access.

We are the exclusive North American Importer of the Alexia Evo by Quick Mill (as well as many other Italian espresso machines). Distributor inquires are welcomed.

T.E.A Coated Boiler

Like all Quick Mill espresso machines, their boilers are manufactured with a T.E.A coating. This protection process significantly reduces the possibility of metal leaching. This coating decreases any adverse flavors making their way into your coffee. Another note about the Alexia Evo boiler: the espresso machine boiler uses low lead brass components.

Great Machine, Well thought out delivery packaging March 27, 2017
Reviewer: Kurt Berg from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Really pleased with the Alexia Evo.  I strictly drink espresso and this machine is very advanced compared to my prior Silvia!!!  The internal coating on the parts is excellent and welcome.  Really have NO fault to find and I am pretty picky.

Best machine at this price point! Italian art. March 17, 2017
Reviewer: Rick G from St Petersburg, FL United States  
After shopping long and hard. I decided on the Quick Mill Alexia Evo. It has all the control I need to extract excellent shots! Temperature is controlled and visible with the PID. It's also handy that it has a countdown timer so I can zero in on a perfect shot. The build quality is over the top. The machine is heavy. The chrome plating is gorgeous. And the polished starless casing is also a work of art. This machine looks and performs like you'd expect from a piece of fine Italian design/engineering. Reminds me of Campagnolo components on my bike. The machine is insanely cool to look at. But what's better than the styling is its performance. It has become very easy to pull consistently excellent shots with this machine. By the way, I never use the milk frother (I just use an old Nespresso Aeroccino whenever I need to heat/froth some milk). If frothing is important to you, the single boiler design may be a chore. But I bought this machine for straight shots and it truly delivers.

Excellent Machine for Espresso Drinkers August 9, 2016
Reviewer: Scott from Florida, United States  
The Alexia Evo, with its PID controller, gives consistently great espresso shots  - far more consistent than I have been able to achieve with my previous heat-exchanger machine. The adjustable brew temp has allowed me to really dial-in the best flavors for the roasts I use. Some of my favorite roasts were made even better with a little variation in temperature.
The single boiler setup is less convenient for milk-based drinks, but I only brew 1-2 of those each week. Even so, the quality of those drinks has been better than what I was able to get with my heat-exchanger machine.
The finish, workmanship and ergonomics of the Alexia Evo are outstanding, and the shipping from Chris' Coffee first-rate.

The Perfect Shot Maker June 19, 2016
Reviewer: wayne ham from lake saint louis, MO United States  
The machine fits nicely on our kitchen counter, along with the Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless Espresso Grinder Type A, which we also bought from Chris’s. It is hard to make a shot that is not drinkable with this combination, be it an espresso or Americano. Both are easy to adjust and dial in shots. After getting this combination I rarely drink drip coffee anymore, as my espresso is sooooo good!

Very Happy May 3, 2016
Reviewer: Mick from Roseburg, OR United States  
I purchased the Alexia Evo about six months ago and wanted to give it a long test drive before reviewing. I am very happy with this machine. It makes great espresso which is its sole daily purpose in our house. It maintains concise temperatures and the timer on the PID is very handy. I will say we had a glitch about 3 months in where the machine stopped heating up. This was very distressing to say the least. It ended up being a loose connection in the system which I wouldn't have expected with such an expensive machine but things happen. Tim at CC was very helpful and patient in helping me work through finding the problem so I could fix it at home. I would definitely recommend the Alexia and Chris Coffee for your go to java needs.
