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.
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.
